These Fruity Pebble Marshmallow Cookies are a super soft and chewy, ooey-gooey cookies loaded with Fruity Pebbles and mini marshmallows.
Cookies are just so easy to make, and there is so many different variations to try, plus they’re great for gifting to friends near and far.
Even though I already have a Fruity Pebble Cookie on my blog, I knew it wouldn’t be the last.
After I made Cinnamon Toast Crunch Marshmallow Cookies, which are absolutely bonkers, there definitely needed to be a version with Fruity Pebbles.
These cookies feature pull-apart Ooey-Gooey marshmallows with a side of sticky fingers and a subtle pop of sweetness from the colorful cereal.
There’s a local bakery in Portland that makes “Cereal Killer Cookies” that are similar but more of an oatmeal-based cookie recipe.
I always have to stop and get one if I’m nearby.
My Fruity Pebble Marshmallow cookies use my base recipe for soft & chewy cookie dough, which then can be made into just about any flavored cookie simply by adding your favorite mix-ins.
The marshmallows transform an otherwise standard (but good) cookie recipe into a mouthwatering, can’t-even-stop-at-just-one cookie.
Helpful tips for making these cookies
This recipe is super easy to make and comes together in a matter of minutes.
However, it does require time in the refrigerator. You can’t skip this step, or you’ll end up with pancake cookies.
You’ll definitely want to pre-scoop your dough prior to popping these in the refrigerator because otherwise the dough becomes firm and difficult to work with after the fact.
If you need to prepare your dough in advance, you can! If left in the refrigerator longer than 2 hours, allow the dough to sit on the counter for 15 minutes prior to baking.
I strongly recommend using parchment paper or a silicone baking mat, as the melted marshmallows are gooey and can be sticky
If you find your cookie have spread too thin, take a spoon and press the edges back towards the center of the cookie.
If you don’t love Fruity Pebbles, swap them out for your favorite cereal and give it a try!
