In my quest to alert Mother Nature that hey, here in Milwaukee we’re ready for summer and not this crappy 40 degree and rainy weather that you’ve been handing us since winter ended I decided to make a Fruity Pebbles Ice Cream Cone.
The idea stemmed from back in February when I made a Rice Krispies Treat Ice Cream Cone, and to create this one I followed the exact same steps, except for the part where I substituted Fruity Pebbles for Rice Krispies.
To create the cone I melted three tablespoons of butter in a saucepan over medium heat and then added ten ounces of marshmallows and stirred those until they were melted as well. I then removed the pan from the heat and stirred in six cups of Fruity Pebbles.
I then spread the mixture between two pieces of wax paper, flattened them into a sheet with a rolling pin and wrapped them around a cone form. Altogether I was able to make three pretty large cones with this one batch.
Unlike with the Rice Krispies Treat Cone where I used chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream I instead opted for regular ol’ vanilla this time, but with one small exception… I also mixed in the leftover Fruity Pebbles that I had with the ice cream, which combined with the Fruity Pebbles that were already in the cone made this so, so good!
So did my message to Mother Nature get through? Well, it has been 55° and sunny almost every day since I made this, but then again, that’s most likely just due to the fact that it’s getting closer to summer. Either way though, I’ll take it!

All I got was a sticky mess that fell apart an collapsed after I took it out of the freezer

Why was it in the freezer? If you did it correctly it should have been the same consistency as Rice Krispies Treats. It’s sort of hard to tell when it’s cool enough to not fall apart so you can start forming it into a cone, but I didn’t put mine in the freezer at all.

So are you suppose to bake it?
Nick ChipmanApril 12, 2016 at 7:15 am (7 years ago)
No, you just make them like you’d normally make Rice Krispies Treats and then you form them around a cone and let it cool.

What did you use to get the cone shape?
Nick ChipmanApril 22, 2015 at 10:29 am (8 years ago)
I have a waffle cone maker and I used the cone form that came along with it, but it’s something similar to this.

Your link doesn’t appear to be good. I tried it with a couple of different browsers and it says that it is not secure. But I found a cone form on Amazon that is really inexpensive…. https://www.amazon.com/Fox-Run-4507-Pizzelle-Roller/dp/B00BGR7PJ0/ref=sr_1_1?s=kitchen&ie=UTF8&qid=1505403254&sr=1-1&keywords=ice+cream+cone+mold

They also have some sets of cone forms that are metal but not nearly as long but also inexpensive.

Your directions are alright but not entirely clear. When do you take the wax paper off? And mines really sticky too so should I be waiting for it to cool then take the wax paper off and then mold them? Too confusing!

Sorry about that. I generally don’t write out recipes, so my blog is more of a “Hey, check out this cool thing I made and here’s roughly how I did it.” It’s sort of hard to tell when the Fruity Pebbles / marshmallow mix is cool enough to not fall apart when you start forming it into a cone, but after flattening it I removed the top piece of wax paper and then formed it around the cone form while holding onto the bottom piece of wax paper. Then when it was wrapped around my cone form I removed the remaining piece of wax paper, let it cool a bit more with the cone resting upside down on a plate and then when it was totally cool I slid the cone form out, which left me with just the Fruity Pebbles cone. I guess the best bit of advice I can give you is that if it starts falling apart when you start forming it around the cone form to just let it cool for longer until it’s easier to form.

Thank you so much! Makes more sense now 🙂 love your blog by the way, hope you know I didn’t mean for it to sound insulting!
Nick ChipmanApril 24, 2015 at 3:04 pm (8 years ago)
Oh no, not at all! Ideally I probably should have kept track of how much time I let them cool for so it was a little more clear.

I love this!! This is the first time I have seen a recipe from u. Do u have more?
Nick ChipmanApril 26, 2015 at 8:58 am (8 years ago)
Sort of. I mean, I usually briefly explain how I make things, but never really write out actual recipes for the most part.
ShellyOctober 18, 2015 at 6:37 am (8 years ago)
Thank you for sharing this recipe. It sounds like it will be delicious. May I ask that you attach a video showing the steps of how to accomplish this recipe from beginning to end? I know that may be a bit much but I fight he worse thing you could say was say no. I’m not entirely getting how to make the recipe and I believe my family would LOVE this. Hope you consider it. ?
Nick ChipmanOctober 18, 2015 at 8:34 am (8 years ago)
This would actually be a really good blog post to make a video of so yeah, I’ll definitely try to make one at some point.

Try using Grape Nuts next time…totally sucks the big one.
Nick ChipmanNovember 16, 2015 at 7:36 am (8 years ago)
I totally would, but I’m not an 80 year old lady.
Aja MonetJanuary 11, 2017 at 6:48 am (6 years ago)
Mic drop! Lol!
Whatever, these fruity pebble cones look delicious! I do not understand how people are so confused on how to make rice krispy treats…. let it cool between wax paper rolled out by a rolling pin and then formed around a cone mould. I worry about the mental state and problem solving skills of humanity lately.
Anyways love your blog and sorry eric but Grape nuts fucking suck!!!!
