Tips for making fruity pebble marshmallow treats

I’m a big fan of soft and gooey-like marshmallow treats but sometimes things can go a little “wrong” in the kitchen and produce a hard cereal bar. I’m sure we’ve all been there and experienced that disappointment.

So a great trick to avoid this is to under-stir the marshmallows. Let them melt over a lower temperature and barely stir them. The more you “work them”, the more you cause them to firm up. Same with cooking them on too high of a heat.

It’s similar to grabbing a melted marshmallow from the microwave and stretching it a few times back and forth. Notice how it firms up as it gets hard and eventually becomes kind of brittle. Over stirring your marshmallows in the pot, is a similar workout for these marshmallows.

FAQ’s about fruity pebbles treats recipe

How do you keep Rice Crispy Treats from sticking to the pan?

Making sure to use a well-buttered or greased pan is key. Spraying the pan with nonstick cooking grease or rubbing it down with butter will help to get your treats out of the pan every time. In the worst-case scenarios adding a sling of wax paper to the pan could also help to pull up the treats when ready to slice.

Why do my Rice Krispies turn out hard?

If you heat your marshmallows under too high of a heat or over-stir the mixture, you can create hard and brittle marshmallow fluff that results in hard and stale Krispie treats.

How long do Fruity Pebbles Rice Krispie Treats last?

You can store your treats in an airtight container at room temperature for about 2 days. The good news is that they are freezer friendly too! Simply wrap them in plastic wrap and store them in an airtight container in the freezer for up to a few weeks. let thaw on the counter for about 15 minutes before eating.

Can I use salted butter for Fruity pebble treats?

Yes, you could use salted butter or unsalted depending on your preference. While unsalted butter may keep the flavors true, a little salt from salted butter could really make the flavors pop and add a nice contrast.
