Butter or lightly grease your 9 x 13-inch baking pan, or you can line the pan with parchment paper.
On the stovetop: Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat. Once the butter is melted, add the marshmallows (reserve 1 cup of marshmallows for later if desired) and stir to coat well. Continue stirring until all of the marshmallows are melted, then remove from heat.In the microwave: In a large mixing bowl melt the marshmallows with the butter starting with 1 minute on high heat. Continue heating in 30-second increments, stirring between heating, until the marshmallows are fully melted.
Stir in the vanilla, then add the Fruity Pebbles cereal and the remaining 1 cup portion of marshmallows. Carefully fold in and stir until all of the cereal is coated with the melted marshmallow.
Transfer the coated cereal to your prepared pan, then use a buttered spatula, waxed paper, or dip your fingers in water or butter and gently press the Fruity Pebbles cereal down into an even layer.
Set the treats out and let them cool for at least an hour before slicing and serving.
*Do not pack the cereal in firmly, as it will make for hard Fruity Pebbles treats.*Store in an air tight container at room temperature for up to three days.
