MINI Trix Krispie Treats

When I saw the Limited Edition Mini Trix cereal on the shelf at the
market, I knew exactly that I had to do with them - make adorable Mini Trix Treats!
I knew they would be colorful and adorable and perfect for park day potluck.

So I've learned a few tricks in my years on how to fancy up my rice krispie treats
and make them even tastier.

One, use a little bit of salt.

I know, salt? I was skeptical at first too.

But my friend Jen swore by it and since everything she makes is yummy,
I had to try it.

And guess what? I liked it!

The second trick I learned is extra marshmallows!

Yep, I said it. Extra marshmallows.

But! You have to ad them at the right time.

You don't add them when you're melting the marshmallows.

After you've melted your marshmallows, and mixed in your Mini Trix,
then you mix in your extra marshmallows.

Not only do the extra marshmallows make the Mini Trix Treats taste
extra gooey and yummy, but they make make them pretty too!

So, if you're at your local market and see a box of Mini Trix,
be sure to grab it to make some treats of your own.

And don't forget the secret ingredients!
