    Okay, friends. Classic rice krispie treats are NORMALLY not my weakness… but these fruity pebbles treats sure got me! I love fruity pebbles and cake batter, so I thought it would be yummy to combine the two. And boy, was that a great idea :) These bars are now one of my favorite rice krispie treats variations!

    Seriously the combination of the fruity pebbles and the cake batter rice krispie treats is SOO good! You could definitely double the fruity pebbles mixture if you aren’t a cake mix fan, but I thought layering the bars with both was delicious.

    And look how much cuter they are than the plain ol’ rice krispie treat. I’m telling you…these fruity pebble bars are so yummy. I ate almost half the pan. No joke!
