Fruity Trix Krispie Treats Bars Recipe

We first saw these yummy cereal bars at a candy shop while on vacation. These are a great alternative to the regular rice krispie treats and would make a good breakfast bar for picky eaters. 

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.

  1. Natalie Zendejas says:

    Hello I noticed you didnt mention the ounces or grams of the marshmallow bag to get or how many cups of cereal do you use I’ll like to make these for my daughter’s party please help me out, thank you. I’ll be making enough for 120 people.

    1. Hi Natalie,
      The ounces for the marshmallows is a 16 oz bag. As for the cups, the cereal is bigger than the normal Rice Krispy version. My advice to you is to make the first batch and go by the size of the treat you want to make. You can make them tall/thick or thin. It has been a while since I made this recipe and I think I used the entire box. It is the smaller box of cereal. I hope this helps.

  2. We celebrated my son’s 30th birthday party two weeks ago and somebody brought Trix Marshmallow Treats. Everybody exclaimed how good they were and I thought so too. Bake Sale at church tomorrow and I am donating Trix Marshallow Treats to the sale. :)
