While these would never be mistaken for gourmet, they are also surprisingly good considering they started out as a cake mix and some extremely sweet neon-colored cereal. I bet kids would love these, and given their unique and colorful appearance, I also think they would do well at a bake sale. From the Kraft & Post cereal websites.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (18 1/4 ounce) box yellow cake mix (I used Betty Crocker Super Moist Butter Recipe Yellow)
  • 12 cup vegetable oil
  • 14 cup water
  • 1 egg (I used 2 egg yolks that were in the fridge instead)
  • 3 cups Fruity Pebbles cereal


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F
  2. Beat cake mix, oil, water and egg in large bowl until well blended.
  3. Add cereal; mix well.
  4. Drop tablespoonfuls of dough, 2 inches apart, onto ungreased baking sheets.
  5. Bake 11 minutes or JUST until cookies begin to brown.
  6. Cool on wire racks.

Very yummy. I too baked them longer than 11 minutes...about 14 minutes. I'm sure kids will love these with the fruity sweetness and the neon colors. Thanks for the recipe!

OMG... I made these for my nephew's third birthday party. They were soooo very easy to make and tasted so YUMMY. I used Fruity Pebbles with yellow cake mix, baked a bit more than 11 minutes so they browned. The outcome was a colorful sweet fruity kid-friendly cookie. Thanks for posting! I will be making this more often for our kiddie functions..LOL !!!
