You are in for such a treat with my Fruity Pebbles Cookie Bars!

We are a cereal family through and through. If you stop by late after dinner, chances are you’ll find someone with a bowl of cereal, ha! I whipped up a cookie recipe that you are going to LOVE. Can’t wait for you to try it! Enjoy!

Can I make the Recipe as Cookies Instead of Cookie Bars?

Fruity Pebbles Cookie Bars

You sure can! If you would rather have cookies instead of bars, just scoop your dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Place each dough mound 1 inch apart. Bake for 12 minutes, until golden.

Above are the basic ingredients I used to make these Fruity Pebbles Cookie Bars! For more Picky Palate cookies click HERE.

Can I Leave Out The Pudding Mix?

Fruity Pebbles Cookie Bars

You can leave out the pudding, but I prefer the texture it brings to the bars/cookies. You’ll have a completely different cookie, but yes, you can leave it out if desired.

Add your dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.

Can I Use Other Cereals For Cookies?

If you decide to use another cereal, I’d pick something similar in size. Please note, I have only tested this exact recipe of mine with Fruity Pebbles.

Gently stir ingredients until dough forms.

Press dough evenly covering bottom of dish and bake at 350 degrees F. for 30-35 minutes, until golden and baked through.

Once baked and cooled completely, cut edges off if desired and cut into squares like I’ve done here. By cutting edges off, you get nice uniform squares. Whisk together the powdered sugar and heavy cream until thick and smooth.

    How many cups of butter does the recipe require? It says 2 sticks which I usually assume is 1 cup, but the butter sticks in the photo look smaller?
