I have a lot of green treats on my site related to St. Patrick’s Day, such as this leprechaun bait, these mint brownies, or these St. Patrick’s Day treats), but I realized I don’t have any rainbow themed treats! So with that, today I’m bringing you a simple and colorful treat: Fruity Pebble Rice Krispie Treats!

I love how these rice krispie treats really are the perfect last-minute treat as they take less than 10 minutes to make and don’t require any baking!

How to make these treats

  • Line a pan: these treats are LOADED with marshmallows so you’ll want to make sure to line your pan with parchment paper (or foil in a pinch) so you can easily remove these bars. I LOVE this 9 x 9 Cake Pan for this recipe.
  • Melt the marshmallows: the key here is to melt the marshmallows and butter over low heat and stir constantly so the mixture doesn’t burn or become hard.
  • Flavor enhancements: I add a little salt and vanilla extract to the melted marshmallows which serves to amp up the flavor of these treats.
  • Add cereal: last but not least, gently stir in the cereals and load the mixture into your prepared pan. The fruity pebble rice krispie treats will be ready to eat as soon as they’ve cooled to room temperature.

Fruity pebble rice krispie treats tips

  • Donโ€™t compress: Once youโ€™ve spread the rice krispie mixture into the pan, avoid compressing it too much. Over-compressing the bars will yield brick-hard bars.
  • Low heat: when marshmallows are exposed to high heat, they harden and will make your bars too firm. Keep the heat as low as possible and remove the marshmallows as soon as theyโ€™re melted. Stir the marshmallows almost constantly while they are melting.
  • Use FRESH marshmallows: the fresher your marshmallows, the softer and more enjoyable your fruity pebble rice krispie treats will be.

Ingredients

  • 5 tablespoons (71g) unsalted butter
  • 1 bag (10 oz; 283g) mini marshmallows, separated
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt (if using table salt, use 1/8 teaspoon)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups (58g) plain Rice Krispie cereal (See Note 1)
  • 4 cups (217g) Fruity Pebbles

Instructions

  • Line a 9ร—9 pan with parchment paper with an overhang for easy removal. Spray parchment paper with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Grab your biggest NONSTICK pot and melt the butter over low heat. Once the butter is completely melted, add in ALL BUT 2 and 1/2 cups (120g) of the marshmallows. Stir constantly, keeping the heat on low, until the marshmallows are completely melted.
  • As soon as the marshmallows are just melted, remove the pot from the heat. Stir in the salt and vanilla extract. Next stir in the rice krispie cereal and fruity pebbles very gently. Lastly, stir in the reserved 2 and 1/2 cups marshmallows. Stir until combined.
  • Pour the mixture into lined and prepared pan. Lightly spritz your hands with cooking spray and gently (do not press hard/compact or you'll get hard bars) press the bars in evenly into the pan.
  • Allow the bars to cool and set up before using the overhang to pull the bars out and cut them into squares. Bars best enjoyed same day.

Recipe Notes

Note 1: You can use ALL fruity pebbles instead, but I found it to be a little too sweet. Plain krispies aren't sweetened while fruity pebbles are sweetened.

    Made these for a party and they were a huge hit! I love the idea of mixing Fruity Pebbles with regular Rice Krispies, and adding more marshmallows at the end–really makes the bars softer and delicious! This will be my new go-to party snack.

    Omg ! I made a batch last night and they were delicious . I didnโ€™t even have time to take a picture of them , they were all gone before i knew it .

    1. What a compliment! Thanks so much Andrea! So glad you loved these Fruity Pebble Rice Krsipie Treats! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. How long do these stay good for? Are they gooey & chewy? I do not want them to harden up. I would love to try the recipe! Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Can this recipe be halved? If so, can I just divide by 2 or need to keep special ratios in mind? Thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. I’ve never tried halving it but it should halve nicely. I’d just be sure to add it to a smaller pan!
