Rainbow Cereal Treats

With St. Patrick's Day just around the corner, I love whipping up these fun rainbow cereal treats for my kids to enjoy! 

You will need: 

  •  half a stick of butter 
  • 1 bag of marshmallows (10 or 16 OZ)
  • 1 box of Trix (If you use a 16 OZ bag of marshmallows, you might want a box and a little extra)
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla 
  • non-stick cooking spray

 Melt the butter in the bottom of a large bowl. Pour the marshmallows on top. Microwave in 30 second intervals until the marshmallows are just melted. It is possible to scorch marshmallows so watch them closely. They are ready when they look like the photo below, mostly melted with a few visible lumps still left in them.

 Mix the marshmallows until smooth, adding the salt and vanilla. Add the box of Trix and mix until they are thoroughly covered.

Spray a 10x13 pan with non-stick cooking spray. Dump the mixture into the pan. Wet your hands and shake off the excess water. Press the mixture down into the pan. The moisture on your hands will keep the cereal from sticking to your hands.

Leave the cereal to set up, then cut into squares.

Have you ever tried these treats?
