Can I Make the Recipe as Cookies Instead of 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 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 These Cookie Bars?

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.

      Hi Sue, it adds to the texture of the cookie, but you can leave it out of the recipe if you can’t get it 🙂

    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?
