Fruity Pebble Rice Krispie Treats*

I love Rice Krispie Treats. However, they give Jorge the heebie jeebies. I wish I were kidding. When we first got together he would have to leave the room when I would eat them! He has gotten much better, but you will never see him eat or touch one. And I still see him shudder slightly when he hears me bite into one.

Back Story: As you have probably guessed from his name, Jorge is Spanish…Puerto Rican to be exact. He first came to Florida at 4 years old and he spoke zero English. His Mom dropped him off at a daycare so she could go to work…and poor little Jorge was the weird foreign kid in class that didn’t speak English. So snack time rolls around and the teacher rushes up to Jorge and swiftly unwraps and reveals a towering stack of Rice Krispie Treats. Apparently, this was the final straw after a full day of not understanding anything anyone says and being pointed and laughed at…because he jumped up screaming and ran from the room. He says he hid behind the air conditioning vent, behind the day care building, for 30 minutes before the teacher found him.

So while I may have to eat these in a room all by myself, they are one of my all time favorite desserts. I still remember making them with my grandmother and getting to lick the bowl. So recently when I spotted the idea of putting them on a stick and dipping them in chocolate…I was all over it. But to make them even a little more over the top, I used Fruity Pebbles instead of regular Rice Krispies. These would be great for a kids birthday party or for just you. :-)


















Fruity Pebble Rice Krispie Treats

Yield: about 18, depending on the size you cut the rectangles

Recipe Note: You can also do this with Captain Crunch!!


  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 10 oz marshmallows
  • 6 cups Fruity Pebbles
  • popsicle sticks
  • white chocolate, for dipping


Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish. Melt butter in a pan over medium heat. When melted, add marshmallows and stir until melted. Remove from heat.

Add cereal and mix well. Pour contents into baking dish and spread evenly. When cooled, cut into rectangles and insert popsicle stick.

Heat chocolate in a microwave safe bowl at half power in 30 second intervals, until fully melted. Dip top into white chocolate and sprinkle with extra fruity pebbles if you wish!

Will keep for 3 days in an air tight container.

    I think rice krispie treats have become the yummy treat of choice lately. I just posted a cake batter version that I’ve made twice in the last 2 weeks. My kids LOVE them, and I have to say they are hard for me to resist too. But now you’ve gone and used my favorite childhood cereal! Eek. I would eat them all by myself! I love the idea of putting them on a stick too. What fun!

    In my defense it wasn’t the treat that freaked me out, so much as the situation. For years just seeing those things gave me the heebie jeebies. Luckily, Jessica is about as awesome as they come and has helped build a bridge to get over it. I actually ate one of these and it was quite tasty!

    I made Krispie treats with Captain Crunch cereal a few weeks ago and my husband devoured the whole pan. I made fun krispie treats for my students when they reach their reading goals. Ironically, I bought Fruity Pebbles to make Fruity Pebbles Krispie treats this week! After seeing this post, I can’t wait to make them!

    Rice Krispie treats are delicious, but these Fruity Pebble treats sound phenomenal! This is a fabulous recipe for kids, especially if they are up for sticky marshmallow covered fingers! Dipping it in chocolate just makes these treats that much more tasty for adults as well.

    Just found your blog & LOVE IT! I’m a huge fan of rice krispy treats as well [and am excited to make this version] but though I’d share one that I give as presents for Christmas. I make them the same, except instead of cooling in a pan I roll them into balls. To prevent the balls from sticking to my hands and making a complete mess I use just a little bit of flour then roll the balls in sugar – they look like snowballs and are delicious!

    These are a well loved kids party treat in Australia! And have been for many decades. Along with chocolate crackles (not sure what they are called in other countries) which are also made with Rice Bubbles (we call them rice bubbles here)

    Im making them this way – with the popsicle sticks – for my sons Dinosaur 5th birthday party. After dipping in the chocolate I am coating them with dinosaur shaped sprinkles.

    Thank you for the great idea.

    I have never liked rice krispies treats. Not a huge marshmallow fan unless they are homemade marshmallows, made with marsh mallow mucilage. BUT…have you ever tried scotcheroos? It’s a rice krispies treat sort of thing made with peanut butter. Some folks use corn syrup, but we use a light honey instead. Then we melt butterscotch chips and chocolate chips together and top them. With or without the topping, they are awesome.

      You can find white chocolate at any grocery store. They have the bars of chocolate or the chips. You can also use the white Almond Bark if you would like!

      You could definitely try it! The texture and size of Trix is different, so you might need more/less of the marshmallow & butter mixture. But the idea can stay the same!

    I want to make these for the grand-kids at Christmas and want to make them up about a week ahead. Is it possible to freeze them for about a week or would I have to make them up a couple of days ahead of time. I am rushed for time and am trying to get my baking done up and put in the freezer for a couple of reasons, one; so that I have everything ready and two; so that the cookie monsters don’t eat them 😉 Thanks for posting the recipe I’m always looking for new and easy ideas that are eye pleasing and yummy.
