Easy No-Bake Cookies
These Fruity Pebble Rice Crispy Treats are so fun to take to just about any gathering. They're not just for kids either. No one can resist the fun flavors and colors of fruity pebbles cereal.
While there are only 4 ingredients in these no-bake cookies, sometimes the ratios of marshmallow to cereal can be a little tricky. Here are a few tips that will help your fruity pebbles cereal bars come out perfect every time.
Tips for making the best Fruit Pebble Rice Crispy Treats Recipe:
- Use butter to grease the baking dish. No one likes the taste of pam. It's a little messier but taking the time to grease your baking sheet with butter will definitely pay off. You want that first bite into the cookie to be joyous, not the synthetic greasy taste of cooking spray, smooth butter and then sweet, fruity chewy!
- Be sure to use butter, not margarine in this recipe.
- You can substitute a couple of cups of the fruity pebbles for regular rice crispies. This will cut down on the sweetness of these cookies. The recipe I made in these pictures has all 6 cups of fruity pebbles but I've made them a lot of times with half rice crispies and they're fantastic and a little less sweet.
- Coconut extract in place of the vanilla extract is a fun variation. It's more of a tropical fruity pebble cookie. YUM!
- You can store the leftovers in a ziplock bag or a covered container for up to a few days.
Fruit Pebble Rice Crispy Treats Recipe
- 1/4 cup Butter (salted)
- 1 14 oz bag Mini Marshmallows (or 4 cups mini marshmallows)
- 6 cups Fruity Pebble Cereal (you can also sub half fruity pebbles for half regular rice crispies if you don't want them quite as sweet)
- 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract (you can also use a 1/2 tsp of coconut extract for a flavor variation)
- 1/2 tsp Coconut Extract
- Coat the inside of a 9 by 13" baking dish with butter. Set aside.
- In a large dutch oven pot, melt the butter on medium heat. Add the mini marshmallows and stir until the marshmallows are almost all melted. Turn the heat off and add the vanilla and coconut extract. Stir.
- Add the fruity pebble cereal and mix until combined.
- Pour the cereal mixture into the prepared 9 by 13" baking dish. Using the back of a spoon, spread the mixture evenly into the baking dish.
- Get your hands just a little wet or spray with non-stick cooking spray and pat down the rice crispy treats. Cool until they hold their shape. Cut into 3" squares and enjoy!
