Two of my favorite childhood cereal flavors are combined to make these delicious Fruity Pebble Rice Krispies Treats. This is a dessert that is easy and fast to make when you have the need for a last minute dessert or you’re like me and want a little something sweet to eat after dinner. Rice Krispies Treats are also affordable and feed a crowd when cut into small pieces.
The addition of Fruity Pebbles cereal gives the classic Rice Krispies Treats an updated and fun flavor, so if you’re looking to update your classic recipe give this one a try.
I’m a big fan of marshmallows and these Krispie Treats are loaded with melted and whole marshmallows. You can’t go wrong with the rainbow of colors and the additional flavors that you’ll encounter when you make a pan of Fruity Pebble Rice Krispies.
A lot of recipes call for using only 3 tablespoons of butter, but I’ve never had as much success with my rice krispies treats desserts when I skimp on the butter, so for that reason, I use 5 tablespoons of unsalted butter and a pinch of salt.
These Fruity Pebble Rice Krispies shouldn’t be be smashed down into the pan or else they will dry into a hard brick. I spray my rubber spatula with a little cooking spray and lightly tap the entire surface and then allow them to dry and form a solid bar. I let the Rice Krispies Treats sit on the counter for about an hour and then I use a sharp knife to cut the treats into squares.

Spray a 9 x 13 casserole dish with cooking spray (I use a glass pan).
Measure the cereal out and pour it into a big bowl. Pour 1 to 1 & 1/2 cups of the marshmallows into the bowl and mix everything together.
Over medium heat, in a large sauce pan melt the butter and pour in the rest of the bag of mini marshmallows. Add the salt and stir continuously. Once the mixture is melted, turn off the heat and pour it over the bowl of cereal. Mix everything together well.
Pour the mixture into the 9 x 13 pan and use the rubber spatula to pat it down into the pan. I don’t smash it down because I prefer a lighter texture to my Fruity Pebble Rice Krispies Treats.
Allow the mixture to cool for about an hour and then use a sharp knife to cut it into squares or rectangles. Cover the treats tightly with plastic wrap so that they don’t dry out. Leave on the counter.
