Cupcake Pebbles
From: Post
Introduced in 2010

This cereal is described on the box as a "wholesome, sweetened rice cereal" with "artificial flavor". The box features The Flintstones' characters Pebbles Flintstone and Bamm-Bamm Rubble.

The introductory box included a "Pin The Tail On Dino" cutout game on the back and a recipe for a "Pebbles Giant Cupcake" on the side.

(From the side of the original box)

Makes 1 Giant Cupcake (10-12 servings)

- 4 cups Cupcake Pebbles cereal - divided
- 1 box yellow cake mix (plus required cake ingredients)
- 2 16-ounce containers canned vanilla frosting
- decorations: mini pretzel sticks; chocolate sticks; licorice or rolled cookies (about 30-60 pieces each, depending on thickness)
- food coloring

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans.

Place 2 cups of Cupcake Pebbles cereal in a small bowl. Set aside.

Prepare cake mix as directed on package and fold in 2 cups of cereal. Divide the batter equally between 2 cake pans. Bake 25 to 35 minutes or until the top springs back when touched lightly and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Allow cakes to cool 10 minutes in pans. Invert cakes on cooling rack and cool completely.

Once cooled, the cupcake is ready to assemble. Place one cake layer on a plate and frost top evenly with 1/2 can frosting. Sprinkle with 1 cup of cereal. Top with second cake layer. Frost sides of cupcake with 1/2 can frosting - heavier at the top edge to create a slightly flared effect. Adhere pretzel sticks, chocolate sticks (or other cookies/candies) around sides of cake, close to each other. Trim as necessary to resemble a cupcake liner.

Tint remaining frosting with desired coloring and spread on top to resemble giant cupcake. Sprinkle top with remaining 1 cup of cereal right before serving. Enjoy.

    Bring This Back! Best cereal I've ever had in my life and just like everything else I fall in love with... discontinued. It's been years and I have never forgotten them.

    I hate most cereals but I loved this... and then - bam - it was gone. I accidentally put cream on it, not milk, and oh my it was the best and now I crave it bad. I'm addicted. Help. Please bring it back.
