Fruity Pebble Treat Ingredients
*Ingredient amounts are located in the recipe card at the end of this post.
Butter: Melted butter is used as the base for these treats, adding a rich and creamy texture to each bite. Use salted or unsalted butter.
Mini Marshmallows: Sweet and fluffy mini marshmallows add a touch of gooeyness to the treats, making them irresistible. You will reserve one cup of mini marshmallows to add at the end to increase the chewiness of these delicious treats. I used Kraft Jet-Puffed Marshmallows, but any brand will work.
Vanilla Extract: A splash of vanilla extract adds a hint of warmth and depth to balance out the sweetness.
Fruity Pebbles Cereal: The star of the show, Fruity Pebbles cereal brings a burst of color and fruity flavor to these treats. Each bite is filled with crunchy rice puffs coated in a rainbow of fruit flavors.
How to Make Fruity Pebble Treats
[Step 1] In a large saucepan, melt the butter over medium low heat. Reserve one cup of marshmallows then add the remaining marshmallows to the butter and stir until they are completely melted. Remove from the heat and mix in the vanilla.
[Step 2] Mix the Fruity Pebbles into the gooey marshmallow mixture until the cereal is completely coated. Gently fold the extra marshmallows into the cereal mixture.
[Step 3] Gently press the Fruity Pebbles mixture with a buttered spatula or spatula that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray, into an even layer in a greased 9×13 dish or small jelly roll pan. Allow them to cool for at least 30 minutes, then cut into individual squares.
