Fruity Pebble Rice Crispy Treats Recipe

I almost feel guilty about posting this recipe. Almost.

I mean, it’s not revolutionary. It’s not challenging. It might even seem a bit…*ahem…boring. I understand. BUT. I will tell you of ALL THE THINGS I make. I mean ALL of them. This recipe is actually the most requested thing I make in my real life.

If I am asked to bring something to a party…these are what people want. And I don’t just mean kids.

You guys know my love affair with Fruity Pebbles…and my long standing marriage to Krispie Treats has been well documented here on this website. So let’s bring the boyfriend into meet the husband. I feel like it might be an arrangement that works for everyone.

Tips For Making The Best Rice Krispie Treats

The trick here is getting the perfect ratio of Fruity Pebbles to Rice Krispies. It’s super scientific. Too many Pebbles, they’re just too sweet. Too few Pebbles…well…lame.

AND let’s discuss the marshmallow portions happening here. I used my Perfect Krispie Treat recipe as the guide…because…well. It’s perfect. If you aren’t familiar with that recipe, go ahead and hop over and print it out. You’ll need to commit that one to memory forevermore bc it’s the last krispie treat recipe you’ll ever need.

Also, I do need to mention, that I have used this flavor combo before here on my Marshmallow Fluff Krispie Treat recipe, when I tried packing AS MUCH MARSHMALLOW INTO A KRISPIE TREAT AS POSSIBLE. Again, all in the name of science. So while I totally stand behind that recipe, it includes marshmallows AND marshmallow fluff… so the texture is slightly different, but still totally amazing. Anyhow, just wanted to say those words before we moved on.

How to Make Fruity Pebble Rice Krispie Treats

Like I said, it’s all about the Pebble to Krispie ratio. I go with 2/3 Krispies and 1/3 Pebbles. Sounds a little Pebbles light, doesn’t it? Do NOT worry. I promise you it’s the right call.

Beyond that it’s pretty basic, except I go a little heavy with the marshmallow portions. Again, another tried and true science experiment. Too many marshmallows the krispies don’t stay together and the krispies get soggy and chewy. Too few, you scratch up the roof of your mouth. You know what I mean.

And like my perfect recipe, you add some unmelted marshmallows. It’s one of the tricks!

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

HI! Do you think you could sub cinnamon toast crunch 1:1 for the rice cereal? Also, this recipe is amazing. I get asked to make it all the time.

This is a fantastic recipe and by far my favorite one to use. The marshmallow to butter ratio makes these treats super moist and chewy, unlike other recipe I’ve tried in the past where it would come out dry and hard. Sometimes I’ll add sprinkles to the mix, just for fun. Any time I make this recipe it’s a fan favorite!

I use nothing but fruity pebbles and I use the fruity marshmallows, so delicious. I also make cocoa pebbles treats and I use chocolate marshmallows in those. Rice crispys are too bland. Walmart sells the ones you make and for me there’s just not enough flavor.

This recipe was perfect. Made them for a fundraiser. I vamped them by putting a pop stick in them and added some white chocolate and sprinkles. they were adorable and very tasty. I also made them in a jelly roll pan evening them out to the top which made them all perfectly sized.

I want to make this for my Granddaughter’s 1st Birthday, but was planning on using a #1 cookie cutter to make that shape. Wondering if i should spread as deep as the cookie cutter, then cut? Do these stay soft, if I make the day before, they will be soft, not hard for the party the next day? I’m excited to try this recipe. Other recipes are too yellow. The birthday theme is Rainbow, these should be perfect!!

So I made this recipe last night and while they were still tasty, they were more similar to fruity pebble marshmallows. I took her “10 cups of marshmallows” in the literal sense – so 80 ounces (8oz in one ‘cup’, recipe calls for 10 cups). This means 8, yes, I mean 8 10oz bags of mini marshmallows. I got to the sixth bag and realized this was a terrible mistake haha I’m sure she meant 10 measuring cups, which would make the marshmallow and krispy ratio far more equal.

I made these for a beach weekend with my elementary school aged nieces and nephews and they were a big hit with the kids and adults! Excellent job on the ratio of cereal and marshmallows, and adding the whole marshmallows at the end is genius. Thanks for sharing!
