Summertime boredom has set in for the kids. To chase the blues away my daughter made these yummy Trix Krispie Treats. For more fun treats like this one see my desserts page.

Trix cereal bar recipe,Trix Krispie Treats

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. 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.

One way to keep the mess of making krispie treats to a minimum is to wear butter covered gloves while handling the cereal marshmallow mix. I’ll admit I do not make krispie treats very often for the very reason that my kitchen turns into a glue factory. 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!

Yummy take on one great recipe using Trix Cereal.


  • 1 16 oz bag of mini marshmallows
  • 10.7 oz box of Trix cereal
  • 1/4 cup butter


  1. Melt the butter and entire bag of marshmallows in a large saucepan over medium to low heat.
  2. Mix in your Trix and stir to coat cereal.
  3. Pour into a large greased pan (9 x 13) and press down with a greased gloved hand or spoon.
  4. Put in refrigerator for 20 minutes then cut into squares.


Cooking Tip** I use {powder-free} latex gloves greased with butter to touch and press down on the crispy treats. I find it to be the least messy way to make these, especially with kids.**

      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.

    I love these! We don’t always have Trix where I live, but sometimes they come out as a special promotion, so I am pinning this for later. I wonder if it would work with any other cereal?
