Bedrock Bugs


  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine
  • 1 pkg. (10-1/2 oz.) miniature marshmallows
  • 1 pkg. (13 oz.) Cocoa or Fruity Pebbles Cereal (about 8-1/2 cups)
  • Decorations, such as bite-size chocolate sandwich cookies, marshmallows, chewy fruit snack roll, decorating icing and assorted candies


  1. Microwave butter in 4-qt. microwaveable bowl on high 45 sec. or until melted. Add marshmallows; toss to coat. Microwave 1-1/2 min. or until marshmallows are completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring after 45 sec. Stir in cereal.
  2. Shape cereal mixture into desired bug shapes using moistened or greased hands. Place on wax paper-lined tray; cool.
  3. Catepillar: Shape entire cereal mixture into 24 caterpillar sections. Add bite-size chocolate sandwich cookies for feet, and 1 large marshmallow, cut in half, and sprinkles for eyes. Cut fruit snack roll to resemble legs; attach to “bug” with icing. Decorate as desired.
  4. Dragonfly: Shape 1/3 cup cereal mixture into two pairs of wings. Use a worm-shaped chewy fruit snack for the body and frosting and sprinkles for eyes.
  5. Bee: Shape 1/3 cup of the cereal mixture into the bee’s head and body. Attach bite-size peanut butter sandwich cookies for wings with icing. Add striped gum for bee’s stripes. Use frosting and sprinkles for eyes and necklace. Makes 2 dozen bugs.
