Fruity Pebbles Treats

Okay, how many of you have kids? Raise your hands. Well, I certainly don’t — but who doesn’t love something deliciously sweet and artificial every now and then?! Fruity Pebbles are, by nature, weird. Brightly colored and full of a mysterious flavor that in no way resembles fruit. These treats would certainly appeal to children — and those of you who really, really like SUGAR.

1/2 stick butter
10.5 oz mini marshmallows (1 bag)
13 oz box Fruity Pebbles (or about 8-1/2 cups)

1. Coat a 9×13″ pan with cooking spray.
2. Melt the butter and marshmallows in large pot over medium heat. Stir until you get a lovely melted butter-n-marshmallow goo.
3. Add the cereal to the butter/marshmallow mix gradually. Stir well to make sure that the cereal is evenly coated.
4. Press the cereal mixture into the prepared pan and let cool. Cut into bars.

    Reminds me of my late grandmothers take on rice crispy treats. She would make a small batch of rice krispies and a small batch of cocoa pebbles then layer it to harden. Top it off with creme cheese frosting and man did that thought make me miss her…ReplyCancel

    So great to see this on Stumble Upon, I made these myself and was wondering if anyone else had ever tried? I thought the fruity pebbles were a little bit too sweet. Was thinking maybe toning it down with regular rice crispies (half and half).

    Then the idea of a Cocoa Krispie treat came to mind. You could top the whole thing with some caramel or something.

    Sounds delicious

    Ty – Your grandmother’s version sounds delicious!

    Scott – Yes, they are VERY sweet! I’m sure if you split the recipe half and half w/ regular rice krispies, it would cut down on the sweetness. Thanks for your comment :)ReplyCancel

    Kyli – That’s a GREAT idea — I’m going to add it to my “to make” list! Thanks for your comment :)ReplyCancel

    This is great! I’ve also found a packaged version in the stores now (in the granola bar aisle) that taste GREAT (and certainly isn’t as much work!).ReplyCancel

    I was never a huge fan of fruity pebbles, but I am totally down for doing this with cocoa pebbles! Great photo, Annie!ReplyCancel

    The fruity pebbles was too sweet for my taste, what I did was to replace them with oreo and chocolate chip chunks and they still turned out perfect. Thanks for the share.ReplyCancel

    My question for you is how you create that drizzled look on top of the bars? I tried drizzling extra marshmallow on top, but it just didn’t work. Any suggestions?ReplyCancel

  • Annie - April 18, 2011 - 12:35 pm

    Xan – I followed the directions as stated in this post. I didn’t do anything special to get the drizzles look on top of the bars. One thing you could try is to use a bit more marshmallows than the recipe calls for – that way it will coat the cereal more heavily. Hope that helps! :)ReplyCancel

    Try adding 1 teaspoon vanilla to your marshmallow misture before coating the cereal. It makes a HUGE difference in the taste.ReplyCancel

    I love bars like this…cereal bars that are loaded up with my fave childhood cereals and other goodies thrown in.
