St. Patrick’s Day will be here before we know it. While we don’t do much in our house when it comes to St. Patrick’s decorations, I do like to celebrate a bit with the littles. For the week of St. Patrick’s Day, I have a fun activity planned for each day. There are arts and crafts projects, baking and even a treasure hunt for GOLD! It doesn’t take much to bring out the magic of the holidays with little ones, which is one of my favorite things about being a parent.
One of the recipes we’ll be making this year are these fruity pebble cookies. With the rainbow of colors from the fruity pebbles, these are the perfect St. Patrick’s Day treat!
- 1 package vanilla instant pudding mix 3.4 oz
- 1 1/2 sticks butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2 cups fruity pebbles cereal
- 2 1/4 cups flour
- Preheat oven to 350° and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a baking mat.
- In a mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugars.
- Once combined, add the pudding mix and mix until well blended.
- Add in vanilla and eggs.
- In a separate bowl, mix together flour and baking soda.
- Slowly add the flour mix to the wet mix until combined. Do not over mix.
- With a wooden spoon, stir in Fruity Pebbles.
- Using a cookie scoop, place 1" balls on your lined cookie sheet. Press the cookie down slightly to make them more flat.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges start to brown.
- Let cool for a minute before moving to a wire cooling rack.

OMG, seriously?!! I love Fruity Pebbles! We used to make Fruity Pepples rice krispie treats that were the bomb! I might need to grab a box of these next time I’m at the store!
