Eaaster Treat Recipe FAQ
Can I use another cereal in place of the cocoa pebbles?
Yes, I choose a chocolate cereal to look like the dirt, but you can change it to your taste.
These seem very messy. Is there anything I can do to reduce the mess when eating?
You can skip the Oreos then the sprinkles will stick to the marshmallows and reduce the mess. I include that oreo layer because it’s traditional with a classic dirt cake.
If you would like to keep that oreo flavor but loss some of the mess, you can reduce cocoa pebbles to 5 ½ cups and stir in ½ cup of crushed Oreos when you add in the cereal.
Where do I find grass sprinkle blends?
You can find them at most craft stores and grocery stores during Easter time, or you can get them right here on Amazon.
How do you cut them because they keep sticking to my knife?
If you take a nonstick pan spray and spray the knife, it will make it so it doesn’t stick.
What type of Marshmallow Peeps should I use?
The color and type of Peeps that you use is entirely up to you. You can use any color at all. And, you can choose Easter Chicks or Bunnies depending on your mood and the theme you want to create.
You could also make this for a different holiday and use another color and theme marshmallow Peep. This could be a festive dessert for many occasions.
How to Store No Bake Treats
You can store this no bake dessert for up to two days at room temperature in an airtight container. Don’t store it longer than that or the treats will become very yard.
It’s best to use these up within 2 days of making them. This doesn’t store well for long-term storage. And, it’s not suitable for freezing.
