Fruity Pebbles 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. πŸ™‚

      No, 10 oz is an entire bag of marshmallows. That is the actual weight of them, the cups measurement is not equal to a dry measuring cup in ozs.

    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 πŸ˜‰ Thanks for posting the recipe I’m always looking for new and easy ideas that are eye pleasing and yummy.

    So adorable! Can’t wait to make these πŸ™‚
    p.s. ‘baking dish’ has an extra letter in it when you typed it in your directions above ;). Thought you’d like to know.
    Have a great day!

      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!

    It’s really a great and useful piece of info. I am glad that you simply shared this helpful information with us. Please stay us informed like this. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Dee @ Sprinkle Some Sunshine

    Hi, where do you get your cute flat wooden sticks? They are extra cute! Can’t wait to make these! πŸ™‚

  6. Christina

    So cute! Am making these for our church rummage sale/bake sale which is a fundraiser for the kiddo’s mission trip this summer! Figured these would appeal to the children drug there by their bargain hunting moms, etc. πŸ˜‰

  7. Kristin

    love pinterest for leading me to fabulous people like you! These are stupid cute πŸ™‚ My kids are cupcaked out and the addition of the stick make these the most perfect class birthday treat ever! Thanks so much!

    Where did u get the white chocolate cream from?? Im having the hardest time finding it in the store. I did make it w/o the chocolate tho, pretty tasty:-)

    1. Jessica

      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!

    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.

    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.

  11. Jalee

    These are adorable!! Going to make these as party favors for my guests at my baby shower. The colors go perfectly with her nursery, too. Love them!!

  12. Alaina

    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!

  13. Fisher Boy Food

    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.

  14. Shaleen

    Made these last week for my daughters birthday and they were a HUGE hit with all the kids and even most of the Moms!

  15. Ashley

    Made these for my sister who is obsessed with kid cereals and she said they were the best thing she ever had πŸ™‚

  16. Megha

    I saw these on “the kitchn” and cannot wait to make them! I too am a novice chef who is always looking out for fun things to make. Keep doing what you’re doing! πŸ™‚

  17. Bourbonnatrix

    I love the shape you cut them in! Must remember that for next time! I too have made them with Captain Crunch. Delicious!

  18. Anna Johnston

    They are adorable, so pretty and cute too. How amusing, your poor fella, touching cornflour has the same effect on me…. shudder….
    Im thinking some of these tasty little pretties for my bro’s engagement party. Thanks for the brilliant idea. πŸ™‚

  19. Lisa (Dishes of Mrs. Fish)

    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!

  20. Rachel @ The Avid Appetite

    I love the idea of turning these into pops! So much fun and so pretty. There’s just not enough Fruiti Pebbles going on in the world right now.

  21. Leah (So, How's It Taste?)

    How cute are these?! I love this idea. When I would stay with my grandmother, she would wake me up with a bowl of Fruity Pebbles. Such great memories.

  22. LauraAshley

    OMG !!!! i love them !!! great job Jess and the bow, what a great idea! i am making your chicken enchiladas tonight in a big batch so i can freeze them !!! Oh how i miss ur cooking !! Lately i am too tired to cook and mess up the kichen for just myself πŸ™ i love you and miss you both ;,,- ( (tear tear)

    1. Jessica

      Mmm love those enchiladas! They are soooo gooood! All I have been craving lately is that Jalapeno Cheddar Cornbread that we love! But I keep fighting off the urge to make them. Miss you too! πŸ™‚

  23. Joanne

    You know, so…if you need someone to share these with…I could totally be on a plane ASAP. I have no aversion to such items of beauty.

  24. Nikki @Pennies on a Platter

    Love the back story and love that Jorge added a comment in his defense. πŸ™‚ These are adorable and must be so fun to chomp on!

  25. melissa

    Oh my, those look delish! I think you’ve just added another line to my to-do list for this weekend’s fiesta themed bash – Rice Krispy Treat favors! If I can find the time, it’s happening!

  26. Jorge Segarra

    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!

  27. Tori (@eat-tori)

    They are so precious! Am absolutely bookmarking for the next kids birthday party I have to go to. Thank you!

  28. Julie @ Willow Bird Baking

    SO cute! And even though I love rice krispie treats, I have to say, I love fruity pebbles a ton more! πŸ™‚

  29. DessertForTwo

    Awww, Jorge is a Saint for letting you tell stories about him πŸ™‚

    These are adorable on a stick! They should sell these at the state fairs!

  30. Alicia

    Glad to have been the inspiration for these treats. Love you you made them so skinny and with the colored crispies. Very cute!

  31. Amy @ The Nifty Foodie

    Those are so cute! My husband hates marshmallows, so he doesn’t like rice krispy treats either. Sad…

  32. Michelle

    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!

  33. Happy When Not Hungry

    These look so cute! I love how you made them on sticks and then dipped them in white chocolate. Yum!!!!
