Fruity Pebble Party Hats

Fruity Pebbles are one of my favorite all-time sweet treats and definitely my favorite cereal. What’s not to love? They’re crispy, colorful and can double as sprinkles. Plus, they’re my favorite addition to marshmallow squares.

Cupcakes with fruity pebble party hats on top

I decided to get a little crafty with my beloved Fruity Pebbles for the upcoming New Year’s Eve holiday. We all know that cupcakes are the perfect party dessert…so I made plain old cupcakes extra festive.

Of course you could go simple…bake cupcakes, frost cupcakes and sprinkle on a little Fruity Pebble Confetti…

Adorable Fruity Pebble Cupcakes!

You could stop right there and all would be right in the world.

ORRRRRR you could go a few steps further and bake your cupcakes, hollow out a little well inside the cupcake and fill it with Fruity Pebbles for a confetti filled cupcake surprise…

I seriously can’t get over the cuteness.

But really let’s go the extra mile today…ok?

Bake your cupcakes…fill them with fruity pebbles and then top them with a FRUITY PEBBLE PARTY HAT!


Fruity Pebble Party Hats!! SO simple to make and adorable for any can topa cupcake with them or have them as a cute treat on their own!

The process is pretty dang simple.

Like I said, bake your cupcakes (my vanilla cupcake recipe is amazing). Top it with some super yummy buttercream frosting. Then get some sugar ice cream cones.

I cut some of mine small and left some whole. They all turned out cute, but I liked the smaller “hats” better.

Just use a serrated knife to carefully cut the cones to size!


Then cover each cone with a layer of frosting and roll them in Fruity Pebbles!


You could even crush your cereal to create a finer coating.


I carefully pressed a gumdrop on the top of each cone and then placed the cones on my frosted cupcakes!

How fun and festive are these cuties?

You could easily use a boxed cake mix for the cupcakes too, if you prefer…but here are the links to the recipes I used:

Make the “hats” the same day you will be serving them so they stay crispy!

*I partnered with Fruity Pebbles on these cupcakes. Of course you know I am a huge fan of Fruity Pebbles and appreciate the opportunity to work with brands I love.
