FRUITY PEBBLE TREATS INGREDIENTS
It couldn’t be more simple to make this fun dessert—you just need three ingredients.
You will need:
- 7 tbsp butter
- 1 (10 ounce) bag miniature marshmallows
- 8 cups Fruity Pebbles cereal
SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS
FRUITY PEBBLES: if you find the recipe is a little sweet by using all Fruity Pebbles, you can swap it to 4 cups Fruity Pebbles and 4 cups Rice Krispies
VANILLA EXTRACT: you can also try adding a few drops of vanilla extract and a pinch of salt to the mixture to give it extra flavor
HOW TO MAKE THIS FRUITY PEBBLE TREATS RECIPE
STEP ONE: Prepare the 9 x 13-inch baking tray by greasing the bottom and sides with butter – use the end of the stick of butter to make this easy
STEP TWO: Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the marshmallows and stir until melted
STEP THREE: Remove the pan from the heat and pour in the cereal, stirring quickly to combine
STEP FOUR: Pour the mixture into the baking sheet. Dampen your fingers with cool water and then press down the mixture gently to spread it evenly
STEP FIVE: Leave the treats for at least 30 minutes before cutting into squares
You can also melt the butter and marshmallow in the microwave. Take a medium-sized microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 30 seconds. Stir then repeat 2-3 times until everything is melted. Put the cereal in a large glass bowl greased with butter then pour in the marshmallow mixture. Stir then add to the baking sheet as in Step Four.
In the cupboard
The best place to store Fruity Pebble Treats is in the cupboard in a container with a lid. Don’t put them in the fridge as they will get too hard.
Tips for making Fruity Pebble Treats
- Don’t press too hard: make sure you don’t over-compress the mixture into the bowl, or the bars will end up being really hard to eat.
- Fresh marshmallows: always use the freshest marshmallows for this as they will taste the best.
- Fresh cereal: the same with the Fruity Pebbles, make sure they are a fresh box you have just opened for the purpose.
- Wax paper: if you don’t want the mix sticking to your hands, take some wax paper and press down the mixture by hand with this in between.
If you love handmade treats, have a unicorn fan who loves everything rainbow or simply want an easy sweet treat, these Fruity Pebble Treat will be the perfect solution. They just need three ingredients and can be made in bigger batches if you have lots of hungry party-goers due to arrive!
