How do I make Fruity Pebbles treats?
Fruity pebbles marshmallow treats are made just like Rice Krispie treats are made. No stove top cooking is necessary, as you can melt the marshmallows and butter in the microwave.
To start, add the mini marshmallows and butter to a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on 1 minute increments until the marshmallows are completely melted with the butter. Mixture will be very sticky.
Using a rubber scraper, fold together the melted marshmallow mixture and the Fruity pebbles. Mix together until completely combined. Then, add the extra mini marshmallows to the mixture and fold into the cereal mixture.
Press the cereal mixture into a 9 x 9″ pan that has been sprayed with non-stick spray. It is very helpful to also spray your hands with the non-stick spray to prevent the marshmallow mixture from sticking to your hands.
Once you’ve pressed the cereal mixture into the pan, top the marshmallow treats with some white chocolate chips. These are optional, but a great addition and topping to these treats. Press the white chocolate chips down slightly into the treats.
Let the treats cool and come to room temperature for at least 30 minutes before cutting. This will help them maintain their shape.

Love cereal treats? Check out our other cereal treat recipes:
- 6 c. Post Fruity Pebbles cereal
- 3 Tbsp. butter, melted
- 1 (10 oz.) bag of mini marshmallows, plus additional 1 1/2 cups to stir in un-melted
- 1/2 cup white chocolate chips (optional)
- Spray a 9x9" square pan with non-stick spray. Set aside.
- In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter and bag of mini marshmallows together. Microwave on 1 minute increments until just melted. Be careful not to overheat the marshmallow mixture, as this makes your treats very hard.
- Once the marshmallow and butter are melted together, add the cereal to the melted marshmallow mixture and stir until the cereal is completed coated with the marshmallows. Mix in the additional 1 1/2 cups of reserved mini marshmallows.
- Press the mixture into the 9x9 pan. Top the marshmallow treat with the white chocolate chips. Let the treats cool for at least 30 minutes before slicing. Slice into 16 squares.
You will need two packages of mini marshmallow - 1 full package to melt for the marshmallow mixture, and another 1 1/2 cups of marshmallows to stir in. The additional 1 1/2 cups are optional, as you could make the treats without them, however, I feel they help keep the cereal treats soft and chewy.
Store treats in an airtight container at room temperature. The treats will keep for up to 5 days at room temperature.
