Mix up a batch of Fruity Pebble Treats and your kids will go crazy! These easy to make fruity pebble bars are always a hit. Plus, they are easy and cheap to make.
My kids LOVE the Cheerio Treat bars, so next, they wanted Fruity Pebbles Bars. Who can blame them? There is just something so enticing about those chewy cereal bars!
However, the thought of mixing up all that sugar with melting marshmallows made my stomach hurt. The kids wanted them and since I got the box of Fruity Pebbles for only $.50 recently, I thought I would give it a try. Instead of using all fruity pebbles, I decided to mix it with Rice Krispies, so there was a little less sugar in this treat.
The results were delicious and the kids loved the Fruity Pebbles Bars! They have the perfect flavor. You can get the deliciousness of the Rice Krispie treat with all the fun of fruity pebbles. The kids love fruity pebbles and the bright colors are so pretty in this krispie treat recipe.

Fruity Pebble Bars Ingredients:
- Fruity Pebbles cereals
- Mini Marshmallows
How to Make Fruity Pebble Treats Recipe:
Butter a 9×13 pan. (8×8 pan if you want thick bars) Instead of butter, you can spray your pan with cooking spray.
Melt the butter over low heat in a large saucepan.
Once melted add the marshmallows. Heat and stir the butter and marshmallows together in the saucepan over low heat until fully melted. It is important that you use low heat here! If you try to rush the process, you’ll overheat the sugar in the marshmallows which will leave you with rock hard treats. You can also use the microwave by heating it in 30-second intervals.
Meanwhile, mix the fruity pebbles and rice crispies together in a bowl.
Once the marshmallows are completely melted, remove from heat and mix thoroughly with the cereal.
Pour into a 9×13 pan. Press quickly into the pan. I like to take a piece of waxed paper and use it to press the fruity pebbles rice krispie treats into the pan so that my hands won’t get sticky.
Allow to cool completely. I like to put in the fridge to speed up the wait time.
Cut into bars and serve.
Change it up and shape these bars into Easter Eggs for Easter, or cut into stars using a cookie cutter for 4th of July celebrations. Just be sure to spray your hands or cookie cutter with cooking spray so that you don’t end up with a sticky mess!
Can I use salted butter for fruity pebble treats?
This is totally up to your personal preference. Most of the time for baked sweet treats you’d typically use unsalted butter because the recipe itself calls for salt. But with no-bake cereal bar desserts, salted butter really compliments the sweetness of the cereal. So I prefer to use salted butter, but I usually just use whatever I have on hand.
So next time you get cereal on sale at the grocery store, save it to make these Fruity Pebble Treats. To keep from eating them all at once, I like to cut them up and place them in snack size baggies so they are ready to go. The kids LOVED them in their school lunches for a treat. They are already asking for cocoa pebbles bars!
These fruity pebble treats are also great to bring along to church potlucks and barbeques. Everyone will love them, especially the kids. You might just plan on making a double batch! Better yet, grab the kids and have them help you make these. They’re that easy!
