Fruity Pebble Treats

On Sunday a friend hosted a recipe swap/makeup party. I tend to dread these things b/c I don't really cook or make things so I'm never comfortable with what I choose to bring and never bother bringing a recipe.

Well, this time was different. It was a brunch. I jokingly said I was going to just bring a box of cereal and some milk. Then, I remembered that while Lord Hill and I were away for anniversary we ate a Chinese buffet that had these delicious little treats. I went looking for a recipe and didn't find one that quite worked the way I wanted to.

THIS one over on Laura Rebecca's Kitchen would have been great if I had a bowl that would work in my microwave.

So instead I played around in my kitchen late Saturday night and this is what I came up with. They were a hit and there were no leftovers at the end of the party. 

½ Stick of Butter (you can also use margarine as a substitute)
10.5 oz bag of mini marshmallows
6 cups of fruity pebbles
wax paper
9x9 pan
Non stick spray

Line your pan with wax paper so that all the sides are protected. Lightly spraying the paper with non stick spray will help as well.

-In a large pot melt the stick of butter on medium heat.
-Mix in mini marshmallows slowly making sure to coat in butter.
-Stir the mixture continuously (grease your spatula/spoon before hand)
-Once all the marshmallows are melted and are in a liquidy state slowly start to mix in the fruity pebbles.
-Once all of the cereal is evenly coated spoon into the pan.
Spread it out evenly. Place a sheet of wax paper on top so that you can press the cereal into all of the corners and evenly throughout the pan.

Let Cool. Cut into squares. You can also roll into balls or shape by hand once the mix has started to cool but has not hardened. 


  1. this looks so yummy! my step son would ove this. Im going to try out the recipe. thanks!
    (stopping by from sits)

  2. Thanks for stopping by!
    Please let me know how the recipe turns out and if your step son liked them.

  3. OK - this is going to sound mean, but I truly don't mean it that way ... when I was like 4 I ate an entire box in a sitting while my mom wasn't paying attention. I got really sick and she never let us have sugar or fun cereals again for years. If these were cocopuffs or golden grahams I'd be all over 'em. They are super pretty though.

  4. We love treats like that. We made the Pebbles cupcake one like that. Post Pebbles cereal came out with a cereal called Cupcake Pebbles. We made them from that cereal. Talk About Good! HAVE A FAB DAY!!!

    Gina - thanks for stopping by! I haven't tried the cupcake version of the cereal yet but I bet treats made with them must be delicious. I'll have to check them out.
    Can't wait to read your blog!

  6. Is that like a fruity pebble rice krispy treat? I've never thought of using other cereals! That's awesome!

  7. Yes yes it is. They are delicious. You can try it with almost any cereal and get a yummy result. Honey Smacks are next on my list.
