Trix Marshmallow Bars

With flowers starting to bloom and trees starting to bud, I’ve been enjoying the spring color outside. And it put me in the mood to make something colorful! I saw some Trix Marshmallow Bars at BettyCrocker.com and just had to try them out! I had forgotten how fun and colorful Trix cereal was–after all, I hadn’t had it since I was a kid.

I made these marshmallow bars a little differently from the original recipe, using mini marshmallows instead of marshmallow creme and a little more Trix cereal. These thick and chewy bars just look like a celebration waiting to happen, don’t they? How can your day not be brightened when you look at all these colors? They’re perfect treats for kids or kids-at-heart! 🙂

TRIX MARSHMALLOW BARS by NancyC, adapted from BettyCrocker.com

Makes a 13 x 9″ pan                                                                 

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 (10-ounce) bag mini marshmallows
  • 9 cups Trix cereal (there’s about 8 cups in a 10.7 oz box, so get the next larger size)

Line bottom and sides of 13 x 9″ pan with parchment paper; set aside. In large saucepan, heat butter and marshmallows over medium-low heat until marshmallows are completely melted and mixture is smooth; remove from heat. Add Trix cereal to marshmallow mixture and stir until cereal is well coated. Press mixture firmly into prepared pan (use a greased spatula or wax paper to make the pressing easier). Cool, then cut into bars.

Note: if you want thicker bars, don’t press the mixture all the way to the ends of the pan–just press to desired thickness (it will still fill most of the pan). I pressed mine about 1 1/2″ short of one of the short edges of the pan.
