Fruity Pebble Sweet Rolls are like if Fruity Pebbles Cereal and Cinnamon Rolls had a baby. Soft, tender dough with the fruity flavors of the cereal sprinkled throughout, with a delicious drizzle of sweet icing to top it off!
Perfect for breakfast, brunch, a snack, or a midnight treat,…. shall I go on?
Fruity Pebbles Sweet Rolls
So I’ll be the first to say that fruity pebbles cereal might not be the most healthy cereal out there. I get it. But you know, once in a while that cereal just hits the spot!
The store had the breakfast cereal on sale, so I bought some. It was a family-sized box.
The bag was huge, so I had to come up with a recipe or two (or ten) to use up some of this fantastic fruity-flavored cereal. Yes, I made a version of Rice Krispie treats, and they were great. A really nice lunchbox-type dessert snack. But I just thought these cereal rolls would be dynamite!
Pillsbury pizza dough: The crescent sheets would work just as well if you don’t want to use the pizza dough.
Fruity Pebbles Cereal: I know they have Berry Pebbles out now, so if that strikes your fancy more than the Fruity kind do, go for it!
Brown Sugar: Dark brown sugar is what I used, but light will work if that’s what you have on hand.
Butter: Butter is always better, but margarine will be a great substitute. Please don’t use oil.
Icing Sugar: Also known as Confectioners Sugar. Don’t have any one hand? Try making your own icing sugar!

Making These Awesome Fruity Pebbles Sweet Rolls
- Remember to preheat your oven then roll out the pizza dough.

Pretty simple right?!?!?! Yes…. simple and delicious!
But, my sweet momma gave me the idea to make these Fruity Pebbles Sweet Rolls and wow, I’m glad she did!! They are so incredibly delicious with your morning coffee, (or tea), that you can’t help but smile just a little bit! Plus, what child would turn those down??? NOT ONE, I’D BET!!
Again, not an everyday ‘healthy’ type of breakfast to start your day, but once in a blue moon, having one of these sweet breakfast rolls just makes your tastebuds (and inner child) super happy!
Adding Nuts To These Sweet Rolls
You could if you wanted. Personally, I wanted these to be purely about the fruity pebbles, and not have another added flavor in these sweet rolls. But if you think that adding a nutty element to the rolls would enhance them for you, knock yourself out!
Which Nuts To Add :
I would add nuts like crushed pecans, crushed macadamia nuts, etc. Adding a stronger nut might take away some of the flavors of the cereal.
Can You Freeze These Cereal Cinnamon Rolls?
I don’t recommend it as I’m not sure how the cereal would react to the thawing process. However, that being said, if you froze them BEFORE you baked them, that might make a difference. So yes, if I was going to freeze them, I would freeze them right up until you bake them.
Of course, though, baking them from frozen will take a much longer time but I think I’d do it that way. If you try to make them this way, please let me know! I’d love to hear how it works out for you!!
Questions You Might Have
Absolutely, why not make fruit loop cinnamon rolls! They would be just as tasty. I recommend crushing the fruit loops up into smaller bits, roughly the size of the pebbles, just for ease of rolling into the sweet rolls.
Yes, it would be fine using crescent/croissant dough. (try to find the crescent sheet for easy rolling) But if you can’t find the sheets, just remember to pinch the seams closed so that it’s one big rectangle. Same with the biscuit dough, you can add a few together as I did here in my Grilled Cinnamon Bun Flatbread Breakfast.

- 1 can Pillsbury pizza dough
- 1 ½ c Fruity Pebbles Cereal (see notes)
- 1 ½ c Brown Sugar
- ¾ c Butter
- 1 ½ c Confectioners sugar (icing sugar)
- 2-3 tablespoon cream (see notes)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Open the can of dough and unroll. Preheat your oven to 325.
- Brush ½ c butter onto the top of the pizza dough. Be sure to get to the far concerns of the dough.
- Sprinkle ¾c of the brown sugar onto the top of the butter/dough.
- Sprinkle 1 cup of the Fruity Pebbles over the top of the dough. Press slightly to keep them in place, in the dough.
- Starting from the long side of the dough, carefully roll the dough up into a long tube shape. Taking a sharp knife, cut the tube shape of dough into rolls. You should get anywhere from 14 - 16 rolls, depending on the thickness of the roll that you make.
- Take a 9 x 13 pan and pour the remaining melted butter into the pan. Smear it around so that it reaches the corners. Sprinkle the remaining brown sugar evenly over the butter.
- Take all the rolls and place them, cut side down, in the butter/brown sugar mix.
- Bake the rolls for 20 - 25 minutes or until golden brown. Be sure to watch them so they don't burn.
- After baking, let the rolls completely cool. Meanwhile, mix the glaze.
- In a small bowl, mix together the icing sugar with the cream. Add the cream in small amounts at a time until you reach the consistency of the glaze you prefer.
- Drizzle the glaze over the tops of the sweet rolls. Enjoy!
1. You can use Fruit Loop cereal, but you want to crush the loops into small bits.
2. You can use heavy cream or table cream, whichever you prefer. Add small amounts at a time so that you don't make it thinner than you'd like.
3. If you want to add nuts, add them at the same time you're sprinkling the fruity pebbles over the dough. Crush the nuts into smaller bits, roughly the same size of the pebbles.
