Kaleidoscope Cookies

While checking out Stephy's blog Dessert Before Dinner, I was intrigued by the name Kaleidoscope Cookies.  I had no idea what that could be. I had to laugh when I saw that they were made with Fruity Pebbles cereal.  I have to admit, Fruity Pebbles are sorta a guilty pleasure of mine.  They are so sugary and sweet but dang, they taste good!  

We don't buy Fruity Pebbles often.  I chuckled when I saw them on Stephy's blog because I had JUST bought a big box of Fruity Pebbles. My son shares my love for the cereal.  Obviously I knew this was the recipe to make.  

My kids were excited when I made these.  They thought they were sprinkes at first but were thrilled to find out what the secret ingredient was.  The kids (and I) loved these.  They were both crunchy and chewy and just fun to eat!  

Kaleidoscope Cookies

Recipe from Dessert Before Dinner
  • ½ cup butter or margarine, softened
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 cups fruity pebbles cereal

  1. Cream together butter and sugar until fluffy. Add egg and vanilla.
  2. Add in the flour and baking powder and mix until just incorporated. Fold in fruity pebbles cereal.
  3. Scoop cookies onto baking sheet with parchment paper and bake for about 12 minutes at 325 or until lightly browned around the edges. I find that they don't look quite done in the oven but they finish fine if you leave them on the hot pan for about 5 minutes. Perfect!


  1. What an easy fun recipe, and my kids are the same they love those things. I bet this texture is similar to the potato chip cookies or the rice crispy cookies that my grandma used to make.. Might have to try this one out for the holidays! :)

  2. Yum! Those look really tasty - you can't really go wrong with Fruity Pebbles. Can't wait to give these a try!

  3. How fun are these?!?! And so colorful. Love 'em!

  4. So glad you reminded me about this recipe. It's been a while since I made it, but I think this will be just colorful enough for Christmas. Thank you for the kind words!
