Fruity Pebbles Crispy Treats

Pin It!

My niece, full of stubborn 5 year old wisdom, has said multiple times that she can't wait until she's a mom. Why? Because when you're a mom you can have whatever color hair you want! And what color hair does she want, you may ask? Rainbow!

While I'm not so sure I want to cash in on the kids and rainbow hair deal yet, I sure wouldn't mind a mouth full of rainbows. Plus, it's nearly St. Patrick's Day, so whip up a batch for the festivities! A word of warning, these crispy treats are absolutely delicious but also really sweet, so get ready for a sugar rush!

Fruity Pebbles Crispy Treats [click to print]
Makes about 16 squares (more if you like them skinny and small, but I go for LARGE and IN CHARGE!)
  • 10 oz (one bag) small marshmallows
  • 2 T. butter, room temperature
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 6 c. Fruity Pebbles
Line 8x8" pan with parchment paper or coat generously with nonstick cooking spray.

Combine marshmallows, butter and salt in large microwave safe bowl. Heat mixture in 30 second bursts, stirring at each interval, until mixture is smooth. Stir in vanilla. Add Fruity Pebbles and stir until well combined; use a little less if you prefer super gooey treats.

Press cereal mixture into pan using lightly greased fingertips. Allow to cool, cut into squares and enjoy!


  1. What do you mean, suggesting that we might use a little less!!!!???? Oooey, gooey is always great!

    1. you're obviously a girl after my own heart...ooey gooey all the way!

  2. can you use regular marshmallows that are cut up?

    1. Definitely! And actually, you don't even have to cut them up. You may want to cut back the microwaving intervals to 20 seconds or those babies might puff up too fast and too big for your microwave to handle. Other than that, it should work out exactly the same!

  3. can you make them without the vanilla?

  4. Fruity Pebbles. Who knew!? You saved my life. Thought Hubby had the wrong box of cereal. Turned out great and very festive. Kids loved them....wait, is that Hubby grabbing an ooey gooey treat??? TY!!
