Fruity Pebble Krispy Treats are the perfect amount of marshmallow and fruity pebbles! This are my most requested sweet treat at parties!

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.

MY OTHER RECIPES

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.

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.

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!

    A favorite treat for young and old alike.
    Never thought about adding in the Extra marshmallows.  Great Idea.
    Thank U

    I love rice krispy treats. I tend to go heavy handed on the marshmallows too. I don’t like when they are too “dry.” What I do that makes my different from the normal rice krispy treat, is I add about 1/2 – 1 bag of chocolate chips to the marshmallow mixture. It’s delicious!

    I would really like to make these for my “adult” kids that are visiting over the 4th of July. Pebbles is their favorite cereal and they love Krispie Treats, so these will surely be a big hit!

    But, I am confused with the “written” recipe because it does not “match” the described recipe and pictured treat.

    You say in the description of how to make these, to use 2/3 Krispies and 1/3 Pebbles ratio but, the written recipe uses a different ratio with more Pebbles.

    You also state to add marshmallow fluff but, the written recipe does not include this.

    I would like to make the exact recipe as you described and have pictured.
    PLEASE advise.

      Hi Karen! I don’t use Marshmallow Fluff in this recipe 🙂 In the post, I reference another recipe that I use this same flavor combo (krispies and pebbles) that I DO use Fluff in, I linked that recipe in the text, so you can absolutely click over and read that recipe. I just added that link and reference for anyone interested, or for long-time readers of my blog who might remember that similar recipe. But I wanted to point out the differences.

      Also, there are a total of 6 cups of cereal in this recipe. 4 cups are rice krispies and 2 cups are fruity pebbles. 2 cups of pebbles, does equal 1/3 of the total 6 cups. Hope that makes sense!
      The written recipe is exactly what is pictured 🙂

    How am I supposed to make this recipe when there is an obnoxious advertisement placed directly over the instructions?

      1. Kimberly

        Thank you for responding. The ad is not there today, so that’s good; however, there was no way to “x” out of the ad yesterday. Maybe there was a glitch… Looking forward to making these treats.

        1. Shelly

          I completely understand the frustration! I will look into why there wasn’t an “x” out option! Thanks for your feedback!

    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!

    I too am borderline obsessed with Krispy Treats! These were uhhmazing and love that tiny bit of salt in every few bites!

      Sure, you can use a 9×13 they will just be a bit thinner…OR you can increase the recipe by half and it will work perfect! If you like them extra thick you can double it 🙂
