This post is almost exactly like my first post in “marshmallow treats week”. The only difference is that I used Trix cereal instead of Reese’s Puffs.
These “treats'” are great for kids because they are so colorful and bright. It makes me happy to look at them. How could these treats not brighten your day?
When my husband saw them sitting on the counter he said, “That is where cereal is meant to be.” He has always had the mindset that eating a bowl of cereal for breakfast will not give one the energy to make it to lunch and that it is just not enough to fill a person up for very long, unless you eat a ton of it. He also thinks it is very yummy and will eat bowl after bowl after dinner like it is a dessert. He has always said that cereal should just be a dessert ( he says that about pancakes and French toast, too). So when he saw all the cereal desserts I had made, all was right with the world.
- 1 bag mini marshmallow
- 10 oz. box Trix Swirls cereal
- 4 TBSP. butter
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1. Slowly melt the butter in a large pot over low heat.
2. Once it is melted, add the marshmallows and slowly melt them, stirring occasionally.
3. While melting, spray a large bowl with cooking spray put the cereal into the bowl. Also spay a baking dish and set aside.
4. As soon as the marshmallows are all melted (don’t let them burn), quickly add the vanilla and stir to combine. Pour the marshmallow mixture over the cereal in the large bowl.
5. With a large spoon or spatula (spray with cooking oil), fold the cereal and marshmallows together until well combined.
6. Pour into the baking dish and pat down. Cover as tightly as possible and let rest and firm up. Eat as soon as possible. After a couple of days, they will start to go stale.
Slice and enjoy!
