A couple of weeks ago I picked up a box a Fruity Pebbles and headed back to the kitchen. All the sudden I felt the urge to make #allthethings with Fruity Pebbles. Lucky for you, I did that. But you’ll have to wait and see what else is in store.

First up, I’ve giving you these Fruity Pebble Cookies. These fun sugar cookies are LOADED with Fruity Pebbles! You can even dip half of the cookies in white chocolate if you want.

The cereal itself softens a bit when it is baked, but you are still left with the hint of the sweet Fruity Pebbles in every bite.

I’ve used my favorite base cookie recipe from my Perfect Snickerdoodles but it’s also the same base that I’ve used in a number of my cookie recipes.

I love this base recipe because it’s buttery and sugary and the recipe includes a little bit of cream of tartar. The cream of tartar is just one of the few reasons these cookies stay soft.

When I bake my cookies, I always pull them out of the oven when they are still slightly under baked. I leave them on the baking sheet for a few minutes so they can continue to bake while they cool. After these have completely set, you can break them apart and they are absolutely perfect in the middle! That’s my kind of cookie.

This cookie dough does require a bit of resting time in the refrigerator. You absolutely can’t skip this step. If you do, your cookies will be flat like a pancake, and I just can’t stand a flat cookie.

You probably wouldn’t buy a box of Fruity Pebbles and think about putting them in some cookie dough, but that’s why I’m here to help you think outside the box. No pun intended. Okay, maybe some pun intended.

If you decided to dip these in some white chocolate, I suggest to buy high quality candy dipping chocolate such as Baker’s Brand or Ghirardelli. I always break the chocolate up into smaller pieces and microwave it at 50% power for 30 seconds at a time. I stir it after each 30 seconds so that it doesn’t burn. Then dip your cooled cookie in the chocolate and tap off the excess chocolate on the side of the bowl. I will usually set these down on some parchment paper and let the chocolate harden completely. Sometimes if I don’t have a lot of time, I will set the cookies on a baking sheet and pop it in the refrigerator.

That’s it folks! Just a handful of simple ingredients in these fun Fruity Pebbles Cookies!

    Just a wee question, I like to weigh my flour & wondered if you had a sense of what your equivalent 1cup measure is in oz or grams?

    Hi! I made these the other day and I thought they were super yummy. I was thinking about adding some almond extract to the next batch as I wanted a little more flavor. What do you think? And what amount do you think would be good to add? Thank you so much!

    1. Beyond Frosting

      Hi Cassie! That’s awesome! Yes definitely, Almond extract would work just fine! You could do a couple things. You could do half vanilla, half almond. Or just replace the vanilla with almond extract for a stronger flavor. Enjoy!

    I made this recipe for my friends and they LOVED it!

    Would it be OK to make the dough ahead of time and refrigerate for 24 hours before baking?

    Thank you!

    I have all the ingredients to make these cookies but I have salted butter can I use that or does it have to be unsalted

    1. Beyond Frosting

      Hi Leann, yes you will need to. I usually pre scoop the dough before refrigerating for that very reason. I fill up a plate or baking sheet with the scoops of cookie dough and then grab them as needed when cooking.

    Hi there, how do you think these would go as sandwich cookies using your frosting from the cake batter monster cookie sandwiches recipe?

  6. Laura Dembowski

    You make the best recipes! I love love love Fruity Pebbles. I’ve made granola bars and healthy breakfast cookies with them but these look even better.

      Who thought’s I’d buy a whole box of cereal and use it all for a few desserts? Good thing I’m the only one in my house who likes Fruity Pebbles.
