Only 3 Ingredients

  • butter – I use unsalted butter, but you can use salted butter. Another option is to use melted coconut oil.
  • large (jumbo) marshmallows 1 regular marshmallow = 13 mini marshmallows
  • Fruity Pebble Cereal – this recipe also works with other “Krispie” cereals like plain rice krispies or cocoa pebbles all work.

How to Make Fruity Pebble Treats

  1. MELT. In a large bowl, melt butter in the microwave for 30 seconds.
  2. COMBINE. Add large marshmallows and butter to a large microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 2 – 3 minutes. Keep a close eye on them so they don’t expand too much and fall out of the bowl. Stir well and slowly add Fruity Pebble cereal.
  3. PRESS. Spray a 9×13 pan with cooking spray. Pour the crispy treats mixture into the prepared baking dish and gently press down. An 8 or 9-inch baking pan will yield 16 thick squares. A 9 x 13-inch baking pan will yield about 24 squares.

Stove Top Directions

Melt the butter in a large pot or saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the marshmallows and heat until gooey and smooth. Stir frequently so the mixture does not scorch on the bottom. Remove from heat add to the cereal and mix to combine.

Recipe Tips

  • Gluten-free. Check the label on the cereal.
  • To prevent sticking. Lightly grease your fingers or tear a piece of parchment paper or wax paper to use when pressing treats into the pan. 
  • Frosting. Easily add frosting or a candy coat to these treats. Top the treats with sprinkles before the frosting/coating has dried. 
  • Mix-ins. Add in mini chocolate chips or white chocolate chips or drizzle the top with melted chocolate.
  • To keep 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.

Storing Tips

  • STORE. Keep Fruity Pebble rice crispy treats in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Stick a slice of white bread in the container to help keep the treats soft.
  • 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.
