How to Make Fruity Pebbles Treats
Here are the step by step instructions to make these fruity pebbles rice crispy treats!
Step 1: Melt The Butter/Vegan Baking Stick
Place the butter or vegan baking stick in a heat safe bowl. Microwave in 20 second increments until fully melted.
Step 2: Add in the Salt and Vanilla
Whisk the salt and the vanilla into the melted butter.
Step 3: Add the Marshmallows
Add in the 10oz of mini marshmallows and use a spatula to coat them all with the melted butter.
Step 4: Melt the Marshmallows
Put the bowl back in the microwave and heat in 40 second increment, whisking after each time, until the marshmallows are melted and the marshmallows and butter are fully incorporated.
If using vegan marshmallows, you may need to whisk hard and quickly to make sure the butter and marshmallows are incorporated.
Step 5: Add the Fruity PEBBLES™ and White Chocolate Chips
Pour the 6 cups of Fruity PEBBLES™ and ½ cup of white chocolate chips into the melted marshmallows. Use a spatula to combine and coat completely. The chips will get all melty and delicious.
Press the treats into a greased 9 x 13 pan and set aside.
Step 6: Make the Fruity Drizzle
In a small bowl, mix together the confectioners' sugar, the orange juice and the 2 frozen raspberries. Use the whisk to mash the raspberries apart and whisk until everything is incorporated and pink. There will be beautiful flecks of raspberries throughout.
Step 7: Drizzle the Fruity Icing on Top
Using a small spoon, drizzle the pink fruity icing on top of the treats and top with more white chocolate chips if desired. Let rest one hour for the treats to solidify then cut in squares or rectangles.
Expert Baking Tips
- Melt the Butter and Marshmallows Slowly- If you're using vegan marshmallows, I recommend heating them slowly in the microwave. I find vegan marshmallows are very difficult to work with and really want to resist melting. They also have a tendency to want to separate from the butter/vegan baking stick. Make sure you whisk in-between each heating session to reincorporate the butter with the marshmallows.
I cut mine into rectangles that are about 3 inches by 2 inches. If you do that, it makes about 20.
You can cut them into smaller squares if you wish.
I find when melting vegan marshmallows, the mini ones seem to melt better.
If using non vegan marshmallows, you can use the large ones. You will need about 40.
Although the cereal says gluten free and do not contain any obvious animal products, I read that they may or may not contain vitamin D3 that is synthesized from lanolin, which is derived from sheep wool.
There is vegan vitamin D3 which comes from lichen...so I am unsure as to where it comes from in the rainbow cereal.
To play it safe, you can buy a labeled vegan rainbow rice cereal. Some other brands make it however many are made in facilities with nuts...so please read your labels if you have nut allergies.
Cut the fruity pebbles crispy treats into rectangles or squares and store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
You can freeze the treats for up to 30 days. Wrap the individually cut treats in aluminum foil and then pop them in a zip top bag or put into a freezer safe airtight container.
To thaw, place the treats on the counter for 2 hours or until they are soft.
