Ingredients

  • Mini marshmallows
  • Fruity Pebbles
  • Butter: You can use salted or unsalted butter, but if you decide to use unsalted butter, a pinch of salt will help cut through the sweetness.

  • Vegan Version: To make vegan Fruity Pebbles cereal treats, use vegan butter and vegan mini marshmallows and make sure to check the box of your cereal ingredients.

How to Make Fruity Pebbles Treats

  1. Make The Cereal Mixture: Melt the marshmallows and butter in the microwave, add the Fruity Pebbles, and stir to coat.
  2. Prepare The Pan: Pour the mixture into the pan and press it down so that it’s level. Cover with plastic and set aside until set. 
    Pro Tip: You can use your hands, a spoon, or a spatula brushed with butter or sprayed with nonstick cooking spray to press your mixture into the pan. Don’t smash it down! You want the bars to be soft and chewy when they cool.
  3. Serve: Slice, serve, and enjoy!

Tip From Our Recipe Developer

  • These cereal treats normally do best when left to sit overnight.
  • If it seems like there’s too much marshmallow, add more cereal, a cup at a time, and stir until you think it’s the right consistency. 
  • This recipe works great with other cereals that have smaller pieces too! 
  • If you want thicker treats, you can double the recipe, or use a 10×7 pan instead.
  • For a fun texture addition, add some unmelted mini marshmallows to the mixture and stir them in before placing the mixture in the pan.
  • Make sure to use fresh ingredients. Soft marshmallows and a fresh bag of fruity pebbles will yield the best fruity pebble rice krispie treats.

Storage

  • To Store: These treats will stay fresh for 2-3 days if stored in an airtight container at room temperature.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I make My Fruity Pebbles treats less sweet?

To make your treats a bit less sweet, you can use 3 cups of Fruity Pebbles and 3 cups of Rice Krispies in this recipe.

Can I melt the butter and marshmallows on the stovetop?

Yes, you can use the stovetop instead of the microwave to melt the marshmallows and butter. Make sure to use low heat and not turn it past medium! If the marshmallows heat too quickly, the sugar in the marshmallows will turn into candy which means when they cool, they will be hard.

Are these fruity pebbles treats gluten-free?

Yes, Fruity Pebbles are gluten-free! And if you swap the butter for vegan butter or coconut oil, then this recipe can be dairy-free too!
