Cupcake is looking forward to St. Patrick’s Day. They have a fun leprechaun hunting event at school that she’s super excited about. In the meantime we had some pre-St. Patty’s Day fun by making Rainbow Gooey Treats!
These are so good! They’re just like a Rice Krispie Treat but instead of Rice Krispy cereal use Trix! Although these are extra gooey, which I think makes them that much better! Hey, does anyone remember when Trix were in the shape of fruit?
I love no bake desserts like this because Chef Cupcake gets to be very hands on! She loves to pour and stir and mix and lick the spatula when we’re done! Though she has no patience to wait for the finished product to cool before she wants to dig in. #4yearoldproblems
These didn’t last long in this house! We couldn’t resist the gooey marshmallow! And they’re so colorful and fun! Perfect for a St. Patty’s Day celebration with the kids.
- 2 tbsp unsalted butter
- 6 cups mini marshmallows
- 6 cups Trix cereal
- Spray a 9"x13" baking dish with oil and set aside. In a large pot melt the butter over medium-low heat. Add the marshmallows and stir until the marshmallows are almost melted. Remove from heat and add in the cereal and stir just until combined. Transfer the marshmallow/cereal mixture to the baking dish and gently press down. Allow to cool then cut into squares and serve.
