Fruity Pebble Rice Crispy Treats Ingredients
Marshmallows – The mini marshmallows will melt the easiest.
How to make Fruity Pebbles Treats
Melt butter in the bottom of a non-stick pot before adding and melting part of the marshmallows.
When marshmallows have melted, mix in Fruity Pebbles and then melt in the remaining marshmallows.
Transfer to a greased or lined baking dish and let set before cutting into cereal bars and serving.
Start by setting your butter into the bottom of a large, non-stick pot. Set the heat to medium to medium-low and let it melt. Once melted and bubbling, add some of your marshmallows.
Stir this stuff constantly to help it melt evenly and consistently. Once the marshmallows are mostly melted, add in your fruity pebbles and mix vigorously to incorporate them.
At this point, add in the rest of the marshmallows and continue to mix vigorously until they’re melted with the rest of the mixture.
You’ll want to oil up your hands for this next part: grab some leftover butter or a neutral-flavored oil and give your hands a good coating. When you’re oiled up, transfer the Fruity Pebble Treat mix to a greased or lined baking dish. Feel free to get real hands-on here and get anything sticking to the inside of the pot out- and having an extra set of hands nearby definitely helps! When it’s all transferred, let sit on the counter until the mixture has fully set. Remove from the dish, cut into cereal bars, and optionally top with a simple glaze. Enjoy!
