Step 2: In a large saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Once the butter has melted, add in 8 cups of the marshmallows and stir continuously with a rubber spatula until the butter and marshmallows have melted and blended together.
Step 3: Remove from heat and add in the cereal, vanilla, and the remaining 2 cups of marshmallows and stir until well coated.
Step 4: Transfer the mixture to the prepared pan coated with cooking spray. Spray your hands with non-stick spray and gently press the mixture into the pan, don’t press down too hard or you’ll end up with hard treats.
Step 5: Once assembled, let the treats cool at room temperature; about 20 minutes. Remove from the pan and cut into 2-inch squares. They’re best served the same day.
Are Cocoa Pebbles Treats Gluten-Free?
You can make this recipe celiac-friendly by using gluten-free ingredients. The Pebbles cereals are labeled as gluten-free, however, Cocoa Krispies are not, as they contain malt (which is from barley). Chances are, you can also find allergy-friendly versions of these cereals, too.

Don’t forget, you’ll also want to make sure to use marshmallows that are made in a gluten-free facility. To be safe, just be sure to read all labels.
Are Cocoa Pebbles Treats Dairy-Free?
These tasty treats are not dairy-free since they’re made with butter, but you can make an easy substitution. Replace the butter with 4 tablespoons of coconut oil (and again, read the labels of the other ingredients), and you’ll have a dairy-free version of this recipe.
Can You Use Other Cereals In Cocoa Pebbles Treats?
Yes! You can get creative by using your family’s favorite cereal! Use this simple recipe to make Fruity Pebbles Treats, Cap’n Crunch Treats (just reduce the butter by 2 tablespoons), and of course, the tried-and-true Rice Krispies Treats!
Yep, these treats are a win-win: they’re super easy to make, plus everyone loves them! Whip up a batch of Cocoa Pebbles Treats for your next gathering, or for the family any night of the week!
