So I stupidly postponed this recipe for a long time. And when it went public this morning, I had totally forgot I’d written about Easter.
And Easter is like, soooo done. Why am I still talking about it?!
So now it’s several hours since it’s gone public and I’m assuming the lack of comments was because people saw this post and immediately were like, oh my god, she’s so weird! Planning Easter posts REALLY late or REALLY early? I don’t even want to comment out of pity because she’s obviously deranged.
Maybe… but maybe I made you some yummy treats to make it up. No story today, folks (besides my visible dementia), just treats.
I’m talking about Trix Berry Krispies and they’re flippin’ awesome. I’m all about flippin’ awesome desserts, if you couldn’t already guess.
These are like Rice Krispies but made with Trix instead–the cereal with the rabbit, you know? And I used strawberry marshmallows which gave them have a yummy berry flavor.
Soo why am I still rambling?
About 7 cups Trix cereal
5 oz (about half a bag) strawberry marshmallows*
5 oz (about half a bag) miniature marshmallows
3 Tbsp butter
About 1/2 cup vanilla icing (I used canned)
1. Liberally grease a 13×9 inch baking pan with cooking spray and set aside. In a large saucepan, melt the butter and both marshmallows over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until completely melted and smooth.
2. Pour the mixture in a large bowl and immediately add the cereal, tossing thoroughly to coat the cereal completely.
3. Press the cereal mixture into the prepared pan using greased hands or a greased rubber spatula into an even layer. Allow to harden for about an hour or two at room temperature.
4. Microwave the icing in a microwave-safe bowl for about 20 seconds until it’s smooth and runny. Drizzle the icing over the top of the bars and allow it to harden, about another 30 minutes. Cut into squares and store any leftovers airtight for about 2 days.
The Trix cereal combined with the berry marshmallows makes for a really fruity, really fun spin on the tradition Krispy treat. I sent some over to Dorothy and her daughter, Jordan, loved them. And I’m convinced Jordan’s a genius, sooo you should probably try them, too.
Have a good day!
