These Fruity Pebble Marshmallow Treats are a sweet dessert to indulge in, and they are perfect for kids to grab and go during the busy back to school season!
There’s no denying it – I am and have always been a major Rice Krispie Treat fan. As a 90’s kid, there’s just something so nostalgic about opening up that shiny blue wrapper and unveiling that delicious golden treat that takes me right back to my elementary school days. Even though the prepackaged ones are delicious, my heart knew even as a child that nothing, not even store bought, could rival a homemade krispie treat. Recently when I posted my recipe for White Chocolate Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats, it opened up a whole wide world in my brain of things I wanted to try with them.
Now, Fruity Pebble Marshmallow Treats are certainly not a new or unique idea. In fact, you’ve been able to buy them in stores and online for several years now, but knowing that nothing rivals homemade, I just had to share a recipe with you all for these fun and colorful Rice Krispie Treat relatives. With the school season starting up for so many across our country, these are a perfect back to school treat that will make snack, lunch, or after-school snack time a yabba-dabba-doo time! 😉
Fruity Pebble Marshmallow Treats are made identical to how you would make traditional Rice Krispie Treats. All you need is a little butter, a bag of marshmallows and a box of Fruity Pebbles! (And don’t worry – the generic of all those ingredients work just fine!)
Here’s a free printable copy of the recipe if you’d like to give it a try:
Fruity Pebble Marshmallow Treats
