Fruity Pebble Fudge


This has not been a good medical week for me…

Yesterday I pulled a muscle in my neck.

Not so strange, you say?

Well, I incurred the injury by yawning.


Apparently I am a violent yawner.

I pulled my “turn neck to the right” muscle.  That’s the medical name.

So I am perpetually looking left now.  All the fun stuff happens on the right.

I feel so left out.


Next I made a mockery of my feet by thinking that Tory Burch was my friend.

I walked 40 hundred miles around NYC in my cute flip flops, and was betrayed.

Betrayed by soft leather.  Betrayed by an expensive price tag.

Betrayed into chicken nugget sized blisters on the bottom of my feet.

So now I can’t look right, AND I can’t walk.


And finally I went to the eye doctor.  Apparently I should be wearing my glasses allllll the time.

I mean, I like my glasses as a cute fashion accessory, but I can’t be expected to wear them  What if I want to go jogging?

I mean, it could happen.

And allegedly I can’t wear contact lenses because my eye balls are weird shaped.

That’s what the eye doctor told me.

My eye balls are misshapen.

I’m basically a medical anomaly.


So today I stayed home and not walked, didn’t look to the right and wore my glasses.

All day.

Oh yeah, and I made some fudge.

Because I read once that fudge helps your eyeballs.


Fruity Pebble Fudge.  Make it.


This stuff is so stinking easy.

Not only is it Fruity Pebble Fudge, but it is also White Chocolate Cream Cheese Fudge.

Are you happy dancing yet?

Ok, stop dancing, my feet feel like you’re just showing off.


First cream together some cream cheese, sugar and vanilla…

PhotobucketThen melt some white chocolate chips…

PhotobucketThe pour your white chocolate into the cream cheesiness.

PhotobucketMix it upppp!


Then add in some Fruity Pebbles.


And when that’s all mixed and happy, spread it into a foil lined pan.

PhotobucketThen add some more pebbles.  Because it looks cute.

PhotobucketAnd that’s so it.

I want this sooooo baaaaaaaaad.

And…I’ll still be your friend. Even though you’re basically a four eyed freak 😉

white chocolate, kiddie cereal, no-bake = yes, we both were thinking alike this morning 🙂 Or a few days ago when we both had the urge to crack open boxes of brightly colored kids’ cereal 🙂

This post is hilarious! I hope your neck and feet feel better soon…. and you will be able to see all the time.

aw you poor thing, but Tory Burch makes glasses, so that way you can be in style and not have sore feet and see everything. But fudge is way better;p

That’s quite a rough week!

On the upside, this fudge looks amazing!

I have totally been betrayed by Tory Burch footwear in the past. I have the adorable classic gold ballet flats (which were, of course, wildly expensive) and I can’t even wear them. Sigh. Fudge is always a good cheerer upper 🙂

I love that this has cream cheese!

For the love of all things holy, this fudge is amazeballs. So colorful and creamy and I’m sure, the PERFECT antidote to your awful day yesterday and your medical anomaliness. I also have misshapen eyeballs and have to wear glasses 24/7 unless I want people looking like they came from that 1950s movie The Blob, and they are cumbersome when I decide to go for a jog twice a year. Otherwise, rock ’em!

August 9, 2012 10:11 am

Awe! I’m sorry you’ve had a poopy medical week. My kids will have a blast helping me make this!

August 9, 2012 10:20 am

Is it bad that I’m not going to be able to stop thinking about this until I have some?

August 9, 2012 10:41 am

OMG, forgive for ignoring your story while I drool over your fruity pebble fudge. I’m obsessed with fruity pebbles…this is amazing…umm, going to start a fruity pebble pinterest board now because of this recipe. swoon!!

August 9, 2012 10:42 am

You poor thing! You should collect disability. And then, bake so much that you actually mail out samples to your readers! Ok? Ok!

My fiance would love this! And it’s ok to have “special problems” sometimes 🙂 I understand

August 9, 2012 11:19 am

No kidding – this has been a heck of a week for you. Hope you are on the mend – a pulled muscle is never fun. This fudge would definitely help me heal! 🙂

August 9, 2012 12:56 pm

Seriously, can I pick your brain sometime? Where do you come up with these ingenious treats and recipes? Anything that involves Fruity Pebbles is a must have. Thanks for sharing! xo

August 9, 2012 2:10 pm

You had me at Fruity Pebbles. I think this might be one of the first things I make at my new house 😀

I think you could do lots of cereals. Lucky Charms are a hit with my Irish friends, so I might give that a go!

Fudge is good for your eyesight and fruity pebbles strengthen your turn-right muscles. And you know it’s true because you read it on the interwebz.

Shoot, this looks good! Sorry to hear about your neck. And feet. And eyes.. But this fudge – man, I need some!

Dude. I strain my neck by yawning All. The. Time. So glad to hear I’m not alone 🙂 Sorry you’re in pain though! I’m sure this fudge helped!! Pinned 🙂

What are these fruity pebbles? In the UK we have a confection here called “Rainbow Drops” which basically are like Rice Krispies (puffed rice/maize) but are coated in sugar and coloured. Do you think these would work as a substitute or do you think they’ll get too soggy in the process?

I so want to try making these.

A few years ago I mishaped my eyes by wearing my contacts too long. It took a few months and several different sets of contacts but my eye doctor corrected them.

oh man, that’s not good for TB to have such poorly made sandals that give you blisters! hehe, well, at least they’re cute, right?! i strain my neck sleeping cause apparently i like to tilt my head to either side when i sleep and then stay that way. silly. this fudge is such a lovely creation. something i’d love to eat an entire pan of and ruin my wedding diet with!

August 9, 2012 10:41 pm

Fudge cures everything. I’m a doctor. I know these things.

August 10, 2012 12:15 am

Smile. This fruity fudge could cure all ills. I’m sorry about your eyeballs and the muscle pull but I’m very glad that you have something sweet to take your mind off it all. Thank you for sharing!

wow i may actually have to buy some fruity pebbles for the first time in like 20 years! (does it still make a mushy mess if you let it sit in milk?) feel better, getting old pretty much sucks ( i know!)

August 10, 2012 9:57 am

If anyone deserves these funky fun colored fudge bits right now, it is you, poor kid!

August 10, 2012 11:15 am


I love ya! you crack me up. And just so you know, I too, have had many a crooked neck due to yawning!!

This recipe looks great but I made your puppy chow rice krispie treats and the family went craaaazy! My husband posted on FB that he thinks i’m trying to kill him with these. LOL

thanks for all your inspirations!!

I have been reading your posts for a week now, and I have to tell you that I adore your sense of humor and wit! I am going to try the fruity pebble fudge soon. I need to start making goodies for sale for my daughter’s h/s band. I just signed up for the booster club and to bake/make goodies for fundraising at her events and these look perfect.

Fruity Pepples? What-what! This is fabulous. I am sure this made all of your ailments go away 🙂

August 12, 2012 12:50 am

We must be related, I had the same thing happen, except it was the other side of the neck/body thing. I can only look right. The left side has been hurting for a week now, so my outlook on life is somewhat limited. Love the fruity pebbles fudge idea…keep up the good work, even though you have that shoe/blister and neck handicap.

Pretty Fudge! …and your posts always crack me up! Hope you’re feeling better soon! 🙂

White chocolate fudge has got to make everything better. Love the idea of putting Fruity Pebbles in it. It’s like funfetti fudge! Hope your neck and feet are better. As for the eyes … ugh. Glasses are a pain, but I just try to have some fun with it. Maybe Tory Burch has designed some cute frames (and I’m sure *those* will stay nice and comfy for hours!)

August 12, 2012 7:11 pm

Yes, fudge is always good for your eyesight and good for soothing blisters too! My medical opinion is eat more fudge. It’s gotta help something:-)

I love fruity pebbles and those fruity pebble krispy treats are the greatest…although it’s possible that this fudge is even better. I need to add them to my grocery list!

August 15, 2012 6:06 pm

WOW your food photography is amazing, I just love the scenes you set up with the dishes and backgrounds. Its so fun to see other bloggers creativity! 🙂

August 17, 2012 1:21 am

Yawning huh? Omg you had me a fruity pebbles.

August 18, 2012 7:25 pm

I made this tonight!! Literally the day after I found it… so simple and sooo delicious, I just had to. Although I divided the batter in half and made two pans… one with Fruity Pebbles and one with crushed Oreos!! They are both fantastic, I can’t wait to try this recipe with other things. :o)

August 30, 2012 2:15 pm

We made this for my daughters going away to college party last week and it was a hit! It’s so creamy and would probably lend its self to different add-ins in place of the cereal. Great recipe!

People normally do not hurt themselves yawning unless they have low thyroid or Celiac disease. If it keeps happening, get your thyroid levels checked. Follow through by researching Celiac Disease. They can be related. My Pinterest could help you with that.

Made this the other day for my bf (he loves white chocolate and fruity pebbles!) it came out looking great, but it is just way too sweet! This surprised me since my bf says that nothing is ever too sweet. Next time, I think I will only use 2 cups powdered sugar. So just be warned that this is a super sweet dessert!
