gooey Fruity Pebbles – YES, PLEASE!

What could be better than ooey gooey marshmallow, buttery goodness? How about you throw in some fruity pebbles! We just took these crispy treats to a whole new fruity level.

These eye-poppingly colorful bars bring up images of Willy Wonka and his magical world of sweets. The rainbow of colors just makes me smile. I mean how could you not?!

How to Make Fruity Pebble Treats

MELT. In a large bowl, melt butter in the microwave for 30 seconds.

COMBINE. Add large marshmallows to butter bowl and microwave for 2 – 3 minutes. Keep a close eye on them so they don’t expand too much and fall out the bowl. Stir well and slowly add Fruity Pebble cereal.

PRESS. When all combined pour into a greased 9×13 pan. Let set and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Here are a few notes to make sure your 

  • Use any Krispie cereal: plain rice krispies, fruity pebbles or cocoa pebbles all work.
  • Don’t skimp on marshmallows the more the merrier …err tastier 😉
  • Dairy free: Use coconut oil instead of butter
  • Gluten free: check the label on the cereal
  • An 8 or 9-inch baking pan will yield 16 thick squares. A 9 x 13-inch baking pan will yield about 24 squares.
  • To keep treats from sticking to your fingers: lightly grease your fingers or tear a piece of parchment paper to use when pressing treats into the pan. 
  • Frosting: You can easily add frosting or a candy coat to these treats. Top the treats with sprinkles before the frosting/coating has dried. 

Making even cuts: I like to line my pan with parchment paper. Once the treats have set simply lift the entire block out. Use a large kitchen knife to make large even cuts.

How to Store?

How to keep the Krispies from getting hard: No one likes finding that a krispie treat is too hard to bite through. Here are a few tips on keeping your treats soft and chewy:

  • Don’t over press into the pan otherwise they’ll become solid and hard.
  • Use LOW heat when melting the marshmallows on the stove. Too high and the sugar in the marshmallows will turn to hard candy yielding a very hard Krispie treat.
  • Use fresh Marshmallows. Older ones tend to make a harder treat.

Storage: Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Sticking a slice of white bread in the container will help keep the treats soft.

To Freeze: Store the entire block or as individual treats. Wrap in plastic wrap then wrap again with foil or place in a Ziploc. Freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw before eating.
