Trix Treats

By now, y'all know that I just love any kind of treats.  Rice krispy treats have always been a favorite of mine.  I remember my mom used to make them when I was little.  And with four kids in the house (and dogs) they never lasted long.  These treats are a little bit different because the treats are very thick and so bright and colorful.  Depending on what kind of cereal you use its possible to alter the recipe so the cereal is well coated and not dry.  And trust me, the kid in you will love them just as much as your own kids.

Trix Treats

6 tablespoons unsalted butter
dash of salt
8 cups mini marshmallows
12 cups cereal
1 teaspoon vanilla

Grease a 9x13 inch baking pan.

Using a very large deep pot, melt butter on medium.  Then add marshmallows, stir often.  When marshmallows are completely melted, remove from heat.  Add a dash of salt and vanilla.  Stir to combine.  This is where you'll adjust your cereal amounts.  With Trix it takes about 10 cups of cereal to get it all evenly coated without leaving extra marshmallow goo or dry spots.  When evenly coated, scoop/pour into the 9x13 pan.  Use a spatula to spread cereal evenly.  If needed use hands to pack into pan.  Allow to cool completely.

Pop out of pan when cool and place on cutting board to make cutting easier.
