Sweet and Gooey Fruity Pebbles Treats

Buttery and full of chew, Rice Krispies treats are one of our family’s favorite sweet snacks. These Fruity Pebbles treats are just like the classic recipe, made with Fruity Pebbles cereal instead.

Pull these treats apart, and you’re treated to strings of gooey marshmallows between crackly, fruity-flavored crispy rice cereal bursting with the colors of the rainbow. This Fruity Pebbles treats recipe is a must-try!

Why You’ll Love This Fruity Pebbles Treats Recipe

  • Full of fruity flavor. These treats taste different from regular Rice Krispie treats thanks to the intense fruity flavor of Fruity Pebbles cereal. They’re sweet, fruity, and delicious.
  • Soft and chewy. All that fruity flavor is packed into bright, colorful, chewy no-bake bars that no one can resist, not even adults.
  • Melty marshmallows. I love stirring in whole mini marshmallows right at the end, for gooey pops of marshmallows in every bar.
  • Quick and easy. Give your oven the day off, because these soft and chewy no-bake treats are quick to make with easy ingredients on the stovetop.

Recipe Ingredients

You only need 3 ingredients to make these easy Fruity Pebbles treats. I’ll get you started with some notes and tips below. Don’t forget to refer to the recipe card below for the full ingredient amounts and recipe details.

  • Butter –I use unsalted butter, but salted also works if you’re after more of a sweet-salty contrast in these crispy treats.
  • Mini Marshmallows –You’ll need 6 cups of mini marshmallows for the treats, plus 2 cups extra for stirring in at the end. One 10 oz. bag of mini marshmallows is equal to about 6 cups, so pick up two bags.
  • Fruity Pebbles Cereal –If you prefer, a store brand of fruity crispy rice cereal is fine. Buy an 11 oz. box of cereal (or larger, if you want to enjoy the cereal for breakfast, too!).

How Many Cups Of Cereal Do I Need For Fruity Pebbles Treats?

For this recipe, you’ll need 6 cups of Fruity Pebbles. An 11 oz. box should be more than enough.

How to Make Fruity Pebbles Treats

Fruity Pebbles treats are such an easy snack or dessert that you can make at the drop of a hat. There’s very little prep or effort involved, and these bars always turn out great. Here’s how to make them:

  • Melt the marshmallows. First, add butter and 6 cups of marshmallows to a large, non-stick saucepan. Melt the marshmallows over low heat until they’re completely smooth.

  • Add cereal. Take the pan off the heat and first stir in your Fruity Pebbles, then add an extra 2 cups of marshmallows. Stir until everything is well-coated.

  • Press the mixture into a pan. Next, using your hands, gently press the mixture into a greased 9 x 13 inch pan.
  • Cool and serve. Let your Fruity Pebbles treats cool for at least 10 minutes before slicing them into bars. They’ll firm up slightly as they cool.

Tips for Success

There are a few things to remember when making the best Rice Krispy treats, and the same rules apply to these Fruity Pebbles treats:

  • Use fresh marshmallows. Make sure you’re using fresh bags of marshmallows for the best results. Stale, older marshmallows might taste okay but they won’t work as well when making marshmallow treats.
  • If you don’t have mini marshmallows, you can also use regular-sized marshmallows (10 oz. bag) to make these bars. Skip the step where you stir in whole marshmallows at the end.
  • Don’t overheat. Use low to medium low heat to melt the butter and marshmallows. Take the pan off the heat when the marshmallows are just melted. Overheated marshmallows may cause your Fruity Pebbles treats to turn out too hard.
  • Be gentle. Don’t press too hard when you’re spreading your marshmallow/Fruity Pebble mixture into the baking pan. If you press the mixture down too firmly, your treats may be too brick-like.
  • Grease your hands. When pressing the treats into the pan, give your hands a quick greasing first with butter or cooking spray to prevent sticking.
  • Give the bars enough time to set. They’ll need to cool for at least 10 minutes before you cut them.

Make These Fruity Pebbles Treats Your Own

Looking for a few fun variation ideas for these Fruity Pebbles treats? Give these a try:

  • Replace the butter. If you’d prefer to make these crispy treats without butter, replace the butter with olive oil or coconut oil.
  • For thicker bars, use an 8 x 8 inch pan rather than a 9 x 13 inch pan. You can also press them into muffin tins for individual servings.
  • Not a fan of Fruity Pebbles? Make this recipe with Cocoa Pebbles or regular Rice Krispies cereal instead!
  • Add-ins. Stir in add-ins like white or dark chocolate chips, chopped pretzels, or your choice of candy. Be careful that you don’t go overboard with too many mix-ins, though, as your treats might turn out crumbly.

How to Store

  • To Store. Any marshmallow treats will always be at their best on the day they’re made. You can store your Fruity Pebbles treats at room temperature for up to 3 days in a covered container.
  • Freezer. I don’t usually recommend freezing these bars. However, in a pinch, they can be stored in a freezer-safe container and frozen for up to 3 months. Make sure they’re cooled completely before you put them into an airtight container.

These colorful and gooey Fruity Pebbles treats are a fun, fruity twist on classic Rice Krispie treats! You'll love this easy no-bake recipe.


  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter (plus additional to grease the pan)
  • 8 cups mini marshmallows, divided (see note)
  • 6 cups fruity crisp rice cereal (or Fruity Pebbles)


  • Grease a 9 × 13 inch pan with butter.

  • In a large, deep pan (nonstick preferred), melt butter and 6 cups mini marshmallows over low heat until completely melted (no lumps of marshmallows remain).

  • Remove pan from heat and stir in fruity crisp rice cereal, until cereal is mostly coated. Immediately stir in 2 cups mini marshmallows. Continue to stir until cereal and whole marshmallows are coated with marshmallow/butter combination. Pour into prepared pan.

  • Spray hands lightly with nonstick baking spray (or coat with butter) and press mixture gently into pan. Don’t press them in too firmly, or they’ll become too hard. Let cool for at least 10 minutes before cutting into squares with a sharp knife.


  • To Store: Cool completely, cut into squares, and store in a covered container at room temperature for up to 3 days. The bars are best eaten the day they’re made.
  • If you prefer, the 2 cups of mini marshmallows stirred into the cereal mixture can be omitted.
  • Different sized pans can be used. If the pan is smaller, the bars will be thicker. Muffin tins (be sure to grease them well) can be used for individual bars.

    Hi are these good to freeze? I’m having a milestone birthday party (60) for my husband and I want to make a dessert tray so we have other options instead of just cupcakes. I’m hoping to make everything ahead of time and freezing them so I can just pull everything out and tray them the day of the party. I was hoping to make these because they are so easy yummy and colourful. Should I just whip them up that morning or can I make them when I am having a baking marathon?


    • Rachel Gurk says

      I haven’t frozen these so I don’t know for sure. Google tells me that you can freeze rice krispie treats, so these should freeze fine too.


    • Rachel Gurk says

      What a fun one to make with your daughter! I hope you guys love them!


  2. dalene hammond says

    My 5yr old and I made these. We loved them. Added sprinkles.


    • Rachel Gurk says

      I’m so glad to hear that! Sprinkles are always a wise choice. Thanks for taking the time to come back and leave a comment!


  3. Jennifer says

    I want to make these for a party but I really need to make them the day before or morning of. Which is acceptable or should the be made right before serving?


    • Rachel Gurk says

      You could make them the day before, but they’ll be better if you make them the same day – the morning would be fine!


  4. Brandon says

    The recipe is great. You talking about your house and other things. No one is interested. We come here for a recipe, thats all that should be on here. You want to talk aboutother things make that a separate link. Then you can have some click bait.


    • Rachel Gurk says

      Hi Brandon,
      As you probably noticed, it is free to access and use any recipe on this site. You can even print them and keep them forever — for free! However, if the scrolling is too much for you to handle, I understand if you need to choose another recipe site…there are lots of great ones on the internet. Many of my readers enjoy the personal stories and actually care that I’m a person behind this blog – I’ve even had requests for MORE personal stories!
      Take care!


    • Jordan says

      Hey numbnu*ts, just scroll to the bottom. This recipe was provided to you at no cost. If this lady wants to was poetic for a bit, she can go right ahead… and hopefully she can make some affiliate money while doing so. As for me? I get a free recipe with some great photos. I hope you find some peace in your life.


      • Rachel Gurk says

        I’m so glad you like the photos and recipe. I appreciate your support so much, thank you!


    • gabs says

      I mean, i dont really read the blog stuff either, (she does have nice photos tho) but at the top there is a button that says “JUMP TO RECIPE”. Some people love the article, some dont. Still great recipe. And remember, we are all different, but we are all still people. We need to stand up for each other and support each other.

      I’m not really trying to sound like a jerk, we just all need to be Fruity Pebbles Bars friends :)


      • Rachel Gurk says

        I needed this sweet and supportive comment today. Thank you!


  5. Patti says

    How am I 34 years old and have never had Fruity Pebbles?! Just made these with my toddler and I’m LOVING them!


    • Rachel Gurk says

      Yay! I’m so glad you guys love them!


  6. Weiner says

    I love these treats


    • Rachel Gurk says

      Thank you!


  7. Danielle says

    Thank you for the recipe, and the beautiful pictures on Instagram. Just an FYI, though, Higgins Lake is not in Northern Michigan. It is in the northern part of lower Michigan. I am from Northern Michigan


    • Rachel Gurk says

      Hi Danielle, I’m glad you like the recipe! I think the argument for the terminology “Northern Michigan” could go either way, but I think I’m safe in calling Higgins Lake Northern Michigan: :)


  8. BOB says

    are they treats good?, and are they hard to make


    • Rachel Gurk says

      Delicious and SO easy!
