If I had to pick one dessert I love to make it would have to be cupcakes. They’re perfectly portion sized and the flavor combinations are endless. You can make them with so many fun add ins and in any flavor you’re craving. Plus you can get really creative and fun with your recipes. Like these Marshmallow Fruity Pebbles Cupcakes. I paired them with my homemade whipped cream icing, cereal mixed in the batter and a surprise when you bite into them. If you love cereal, then you’ll love these fun, colorful cupcakes yum.

Fruity Pebbles was my all time favorite cereal growing up.  I remember when my mom would treat us to a box. I snack on them straight out of the box. They’re still one of my favorite cereals and when I’m craving a late night snack, a bowl of Fruity Pebbles usually hits the spot. Fruity Pebbles has been a family favorite since 1970 and now they’ve made it even better with marshmallows! The cereal contains no high fructose corn syrup and is an excellent source of Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folic Acid and Vitamin B12.

One of the great things about cereal is it’s not just for breakfast anymore. You can add it in to recipes for a fun twist like I did or even eat a bowl for lunch or dinner. When I spotted these new Marshmallow Fruity Pebbles, I knew they’d be perfect in my cupcakes but you could get creative and make so many other things like trail mix, snack bars and so much more.

I’ll be honest though. It doesn’t get much better than these Marshmallow Fruity Pebbles cupcakes paired with a sweet homemade whipped cream icing.

I really wanted to make these cupcakes fun and full of the Fruity Pebbles that I love so I made sure to use plenty of cereal throughout the recipe.

First, I added the cereal into the cake batter before baking to give the cupcakes a fun speckled look.

Once they were baked, I hollowed the cupcakes with my cupcake corer. If you don’t have one of those, just use a knife to cut a little circle out of the center.

Then I filled them with more Marshmallow Fruity Pebbles cereal.

Then I topped them off with my delicious homemade whipped cream and even more cereal.

Not only do they look so pretty, they taste amazing!

Seriously they’re so good. The whipped cream reminds me of the milk left behind after you’ve eaten all the cereal in your bowl. So it really compliments the cupcakes perfectly good.

My favorite part might just be the hidden cereal surprise inside.

Does this icing stay firm? Or does it need to be refrigerated once piped?

Those are the cutest things ever! I love the surprise inside and think the Fruity Pebbles are so much more interesting than sprinkles on top!
