There’s no surprise that I’m a girl who loves color. I love color in my wardrobe, my décor, and even my food. So when I see a colorful dessert I’m immediately intrigued.
I saw these Trix Treats on Pinterest a while ago. I pin so many recipes on Pinterest and rarely ever go back and make them. But one day I decided to go through all my dessert boards and pick a dessert to make – These were the winner. It was the color that drew me in :).
These are just like Rice Krispie Treats, but instead of using Rice Krispie Cereal you use Trix Cereal. Trix cereal is sugary and fruity so it makes a perfect treat when mixed with marshmallows.
Enjoy these fun and colorful treats!

Makes: About 12-15 squares, depending of the size you cut your squares
5 tbsp. Unsalted Butter
¼ tsp. Salt
10 ounces (1 large bag) of Marshmallows, I like to use the larger ones
1 tbsp. Pure Vanilla Extract
6 cups Trix Cereal
Butter the bottom of a 9x9 baking pan and set aside.
In a large saucepan, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Add the marshmallows and salt, stirring occasionally, until the marshmallows are completely melted and smooth. Stir in the vanilla.
Add the cereal to the marshmallows and stir until the cereal is completely coated with the melted marshmallows. Remove from the heat and stir a few more times to make sure the cereal is coated and there are no melted marshmallows on the bottom of the pan. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and press it down into the pan. Because the mixture can be so sticky, I butter my hands to press the mixture into the pan.
Let the treats cool in the pan on counter until completely cooled and hardened, about 1 hour. Cut into squares, and either wrap in plastic wrap individually or serve.
These last up to 4 days wrapped in the plastic wrap or in a sealed container.
