Okay, friends. Rice Krispy treats are NORMALLY not my weakness… but these sure got me! I adapted them from this cake batter recipe and added my own twist. I love Fruity Pebble treats… so, I thought it would be yummy to combine the two. And boy, was that a great idea! :)

The BEST Rice Krispy Treat

Ingredients:

Cake Batter & Fruity Pebble Crispy Treats

TOP LAYER:

  • 4 TB butter
  • (1) 12-ounce bag of mini marshmallows
  • 1/4 cup yellow cake mix
  • 6 cups rice krispies cereal
  • (1) 1.75-ounce container of sprinkles

Bottom Layer:

  • 3 TB Butter
  • (1) 10 oz bag mini marshmallows
  • 4-5 cups fruity pebbles

Directions:

1. Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat and add marshmallows. Stir until they begin to melt, adding in cake mix one spoonful at a time so its combined. Stir in cereal so it is completely coated with marshmallow mixture. Sprinkle in half of the sprinkles and mix.

2. You’ll make the fruity pebble krispy’s using the recipe above (bottom layer)… however you won’t let the marshmallows melt all the way (see the difference?!). If you melt the marshmallows half wayit makes the PERFECT rice krispy.

3. Then you’ll press the fruity pebble mixture into the baking dish (9X13). I found it easiest to push down the mixture with a spoon coated in butter. Next, add the cake batter recipe and top with remaining sprinkles. Let sit for about 30 minutes before cutting.

    They started selling the Fruity Pebble treats in stores recently and I had a coupon so I bought some. No joke half the box was gone before I walked in the door to my home which is about 3 minutes away if I make the red light.

    I’m going to try out your half-melting tip and try making them. No bets on how many will be gone.

    I have a seriously weakness for rice krispy treats… unfortunatly when my mom made some when I was younger we found out I’m allergic to fruity pebbles but not regular ones. SO wierd we still can’t figure it out.
    Recipe looks so great though… thank you for sharing!

    FYI- if you just wet your hands with water you can very easily pat down the rice krispy mixture into the pan without a sticky mess. Just keep your hands wet! Easy!
    The cake batter sounds divine! I’m excited to try that. Thanks!

    Those are the cutest krispy treats I’ve ever seen! And speaking of cute, I love the design you have for your comment section. *swoon* Sooo stinkin’ cute. Aqua and pink is one of my favorite color combos. :)
