  1. What a cute twist on the rice krispy treats. I enjoy cocoa pebbles. I don’t have young children so I’ll just make a pan of these.

  2. My son is deathly afraid of spiders. (He’s 26) But I would love to make these and get a giggle out of him opening a box full of edible spiders.

  3. These are about the only spiders you’ll see me having any contact with! (Plus I get to bite them and not vice versa!)

  4. The grandkids LOVE Fruity & Cocoa Pebbles – so we usually have these cereals in the pantry. I hate spiders – this will give me a chance to chomp on one 🙂
    Such a scary good idea! Pinning! Thanks!

  5. yum! I am sure any one having one of these is going to be very happy, I love the ease of the recipe to make these ) thanks

  6. I never would have thought of using cocoa pebbles instead of rice krispies. I love this idea. It’s very cute, creative, and a lot of fun for kids.

  7. This is so cute! I think my girls would love them! I will have to save this when we work on the letter S we can make spiders!
