Fruity Pebble Treats

I first had one of these off Sweet E’s Bake Shop‘s food truck, and obviously kept going back for more. Then, I decided to finally make my own. It’s a super easy recipe – you’re making Rice Krispie Treats, but with a different kind of cereal. Trying these made me realize all the possibilities for different cereals you can use. I have big plans for the future.

Anyway, here’s the recipe:

FRUITY PEBBLE TREATS – Makes 20-24

  • 3 Tbsp salted butter
  • 10 oz (about a package) mini marshmallows (should be about 4 cups)
  • 6 cups Fruity Pebbles

Here are some notes — of course you can use large marshmallows, just use a 10 oz bag. I prefer the minis because they melt quicker. As for the cereal, 6 cups is just a bit less than an entire 11oz box of cereal. (Go nuts, use the entire box!) I also mention the box size because  when I went shopping, I wasn’t sure if I’d need the family size.

First, you need to prepare a 9×13″ pan. Grease it with cooking spray, butter, or shortening. I used butter.

Now for the messy part. In a large saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Then add the marshmallows and stir until completely melted. I’d also recommend folding the marshmallows, so you get more even distribution of melt, and the process should go more quickly. Once they’re mixed and lump-free, remove from heat.

Next, add your cereal, and stir until it’s evenly coated with marshmallow/butter mix. Then, using a buttered spatula, or wax paper, press the mixture evenly into your prepared dish. Let it cool, then cut it into squares.

Not only are these pretty, but they’re so good! The “fruit” flavored cereal really adds another layer of awesome to these otherwise perfect treats. If you’re taking them to a party, you might want to make a double batch. (One to keep at home, obviously.) There will be none left over.

Evil rating on these is a 4 because this recipe ups the game of the already addictive Rice Krispie Treats.
