Fruity Pebbles Treats

Fruity pebbles treats are the fun, exciting cousin to rice crispy treats. They are bursting with flavor, yet still have that delicious, gooey marshmallow goodness we all know and love. 

They are bright and colorful making these treats perfect for a birthday party or an afternoon pick-me-up. 

This dessert is so simple to make. You only need 3 ingredients: butter, Fruity Pebbles cereal, and marshmallows. This is the perfect treat for your budding chef to make. Easy to whip up and you don’t even need to turn on the oven.

What size marshmallows should I used when making fruity pebble treats?

I like to use mini marshmallows. If you only have large ones- they will work but using mini marshmallows helps to spread out the flavor more. 

How do I prevent fruit pebbles treats from sticking to the pan?

Working with marshmallows is super sticky. I like to spray everything down with non-stick cooking spray. This includes spraying the pan, spatula, mixing bowl, and my hands!

Can you freeze Fruity Pebbles Treats?

Fruity pebbles treats store really well. If you are wanting to freeze a batch for later, just make sure they are completely cooled and stored in an airtight container before placing in the freezer. 

Why are my fruity pebbles treats hard?

This could be caused by a couple of culprits. 1. Make sure to use fresh marshmallows to optimize freshness and prevent hard treats. 2. Melt the marshmallows and butter on low heat. If you are melting at a rapid pace, they have the tendency to turn too hard.

Fruity Pebbles Treats

Here’s how to make a quick no-bake dessert using Fruity Pebbles cereal, marshmallows, and butter, and it’s all done in just a few minutes!
Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes
Total: 15 minutes
Servings: 24

Ingredients 

  • 8 tablespoons butter,, 1/2 cup or 1 stick
  • 16 ounces mini marshmallows,, divided
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 7 cups Fruit Pebbles crispy cereal

Instructions 

  • Prepare a 9-inch square baking pan by greasing it well with butter.
  • In a large pan on the stove, melt the butter over medium heat.
  • Reduce the heat to medium-low; add all of the marshmallows EXCEPT for 1 cup.
  • Stir constantly, until the marshmallows are melted.
  • Remove from the heat, and stir in the vanilla.
  • Add the Fruit Pebble crispy cereal and the remaining one cup of mini mallows, and stir to combine well, making sure there are no dry pockets of cereal.
  • Add the cereal to the prepared pan, and use a spatula to spread it out to an even layer, taking care not to press or smash it down. If a spatula isn’t cutting it, get your hands lightly damp, and gently press out the cereal. A buttered bottom of a measuring cup also works well.
  • Let the rice crispy treats cool for 30 minutes before serving.

Notes

  • Keys to avoiding hard rice crispy treats: Cook your mallows at a low temperature, use fresh marshmallows, don’t press things too hard into the pan, and use lots of butter (I use more than double what the “on the box” recipe calls for, and it’s delightful).
