Fruity Pebbles Treats Ingredients

Fruity Pebbles Treats raw ingredients that are labeled

You will need:

  • 7 tablespoons butter
  • 1 (10-ounce) bag miniature marshmallows
  • 8 cups Fruity Pebbles cereal

PRO TIP: Always use the freshest marshmallows for this as they will taste the best. Also, make sure you use a fresh box of cereal you have just opened for the purpose.

Substitutions and Additions

FRUITY PEBBLES: If you find this no-bake dessert recipe is a little sweet by using all Fruity Pebbles, you can use 4 cups of Fruity Pebbles and 4 cups of plain Rice Krispies. 

VANILLA EXTRACT: You can also try adding a few drops of vanilla extract and a pinch of salt to the mixture to give it extra flavor. 

How to Make Fruity This Pebbles Treats Recipe

STEP ONE: Prepare a 9×13 pan by rubbing the bottom and sides with butter. This can be easily done by using one end of a stick of butter. Set aside.

STEP TWO: Melt butter in a large pan over medium heat. Add marshmallows, stirring until melted.

PRO TIP: You can also melt the butter and marshmallows in the microwave. Take a medium-sized microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 30 seconds. Stir then repeat 2 to 3 times in 30-second increments until everything is melted. Combine with the cereal in a large bowl.

STEP THREE: Remove the pan from the heat and immediately pour the cereal into the pan on top of the melted marshmallows. Stir as quickly as possible until well combined.

PRO TIP: If you don’t want the melted marshmallows mixture sticking to your hands, take some wax paper and press down on the mixture by hand with the wax paper in between.

STEP FOUR: Pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Dampen the flat of your fingers with cool water and use these to evenly spread the mixture into the pan, packing it down.

PRO TIP: Make sure you don’t over-compress the gooey fruity pebbles mixture into the bowl, or the bars will end up being really hard to eat.

How to Serve

Fruity Pebble Treats are perfect for parties, celebrations, or a fun afternoon treat. Pair your colorful treats with other rainbow snacks like rainbow popcorn or cosmic brownies. Enjoy your Fruity Pebble treat cereal bar with a glass of cold milk, iced tea, or lemonade. 

Storage

ON THE COUNTER: The best place to store these crispy treats is on the counter at room temperature in an airtight container with a lid. Don’t put them in the fridge as they will get too hard. 

IN THE FREEZER: You could also freeze these Fruity Pebbles bars for four to six weeks in a freezer-safe container with wax paper in between each treat.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you keep the squares from sticking together? 

Store any leftovers in an airtight container or bag in between sheets of wax paper to help keep each square from sticking to the others. 

Why are my treats hard? 

Getting the marshmallow and butter mixture too hot can lead to your Fruity Pebbles treats getting too hard. Also, if you don’t use fresh marshmallows or butter, it can impact your treats. 

How do I mix the marshmallows and cereal without them sticking to everything? 

You can dampen your hands and spatula with water or spray both with cooking spray to help avoid the mixture
