Trix Krispie Treats
Just like rice krispies treats, these Trix krispie treats are so simple to make. So simple in fact that it makes this a kid-friendly recipe.
Less Mess Krispy Treats
I’ll admit I do not make Krispie treats very often for the very reason that my kitchen turns into a glue factory. Yuck, everything including the pan is a sticky marshmallow disaster.
So What’s the Trick?
One way to keep the mess of making Krispie treats to a minimum is to wear gloves rubbed with butter while handling the cereal marshmallow mix.
Using the buttered glove method makes mixing these treats a little more bearable with less mess. I hope you enjoy one of families favorite treats!
MAKE AHEAD: Place single servings in an airtight container and keep it on the counter for 4-5 days.
FREEZER: Wrap in wax paper and place them in an airtight container. Freeze for up to 3 months. Defrost treats while wrapped so they do not get sticky or gooey.
