Fruity Pebbles Cookies

Fruity Pebbles Cookies

These Fruity Pebbles Cookies taste like you just infused cereal milk into your favorite cookie!

If you love cereal, sweet treats and a good cookie, this one is for you.

This is soft chewy cookie where the base is not only flour, but crushed Fruity Pebbles cereal.

The cookie in itself packs a punch with all the flavor.

But top it with a glaze and more Fruity Pebbles cereal?!

Um, yes please! I promise they’re incredible!

The soft cookie, the crunchy topping, the sweet glaze binding it all together…Seriously 10/10 cookie.

Top cookie of the year so far for me!

What do I need to make Fruity Pebbles Cookies?

You’re going to need the basics, plus a little bit more ;)

  • Fruity Pebbles – buy the Family size box. Not only do you need about 4 cups for this recipe, you’re going to snack on it. Ask me how I know.
  • Flour – I’ve only tested this with all purpose!
  • baking soda – baking soda does much better than baking powder in this one!
  • salt – good ol’ fashioned table salt (or you could use Kosher salt!)
  • Butter- unsalted and softened, please and thank you!
  • Sugar- just regular granulated sugar for this one
  • Eggs- large eggs at room temperature yield the best results
  • vanilla extract- the best you can find…preferably homemade!

How to Make These:

  • Preheat your oven to 350 and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. I prefer parchment over foil or just greasing a pan.
  • Add your cereal to a food processor and turn those into crumbs. You need about 1 cup of crumbs. You could also crush them in a bag but a food processor would be much faster!
  • Mix those crumbs up with the flour, baking soda and salt and set aside.
  • Now beat your butter and sugar on high until realllllyyyy creamy. Add in the eggs and vanilla and beat again.
  • Now add your dry ingredients in and beat until just combined.
  • Use a spatula or wooden spoon to really try and bring the dough together into one big ball.
  • Now divide that ball into 8 or 16 pieces, depending on how big you want your cookies. Roll them into balls.
  • Place on a baking sheet and bake for 10-12 min. The most important part is to just keep an eye on them so they get slightly golden. Remove from the oven and let them fully cool.
  • While they cool, make the glaze in one bowl and add the remainder of your (uncrushed) cereal to another bowl.
  • Dip the tops of your cooled cookies into the glaze and then into the Fruity Pebbles. Place them on a wire rack to set.
  • ENJOY! They’re sooo good!

Can I make these in advance?

You can, but I would suggest either stopping right before baking or right after. If you will have the time to bake them fresh, then keep your dough in the fridge until that point. If you won’t, bake the cookies, but don’t glaze or add the topping.

The cereal gets stale after a day, so it’s best to add the topping right before enjoying!

Can I keep the dough in the freezer?

You sure can! Roll into balls and store in an airtight freezer bag for 3 months. Bake from frozen, but they will need a few extra minutes to finish baking.

  • 2 cups fruity pebbles

    I’m gonna say I used this recipe. I’m not impressed. The cookies did flatten out and spread to much even with small amounts on the pan. I had to up the temperature just to get them to fluff up.
