Halloween Rice Krispies Treats

If you’ve been following us for a while now, you’ve probably caught on to just how much with love a good Rice Krispie Treat. We have literally DOZENS of recipes, variations and holiday creations using the simple method of mixing crispy rice cereal with some butter and marshmallow. (Take a look at all our Rice Krispie ideas here.)

Today I want to show you the magic that can happen when you ditch the crispy rice and use one of my kids favorite cereals in it’s place… Trix!

FYI – This is not sponsored in any way… although it should be! 🙂  I’m not getting paid by Trix or General Mills, or the National Cereal Association (if that’s even a thing!)

Anyway, with that disclosure out of the way, let me show you this darling Halloween-ish version that my kids absolutely LOVED! Take a look:

How To Make Trix Rice Krispies Treats

Melt It – Using a microwave safe bowl, melt the butter and marshmallows in the microwave.  Start by warming them for about 2 minutes.  If they’re not fully melted, give them a good stir and then continue heating them for an additional minute or until they’ve melted.

Mix It – Stir in the Trix cereal until everything has been evenly coated.

Set It – Spread the Trix and Rice Krispies mix evenly into a 9×13 pan.  You’ll want to make sure you spray the pan with cooking spray or line it with parchment paper to make them easier to remove.

Cool It – Allow the marshmallow in the treats to completely cool.  Once cooled, cut them into squares and then tie on a Trix or Treat tag with colorful twine.
