Smooth and creamy fruity pebble cheesecake baked to perfection. This is the perfect cheesecake for any occasion.
It’s no secret that I’ve been using the same cheesecake base for years. It’s the best. I baked this cheesecake about a month ago and couldn’t wait to share the recipe with you all but first wanted to get the Thanksgiving recipes out of the way first.
I added some fruity pebbles to the cheesecake batter and after the cheesecake was done baking and cooling, I topped it off with more fruity pebbles. It gives it such a nice crunch, who knew cheesecake needed crunch?
You can serve this cheesecake with some whipped cream if you’d like.
Fruity Pebble Crust
Of course, I had to make the crust using fruity pebbles and butter! No sugar required.
Look at that delicious fruity pebble crust!
