Trix Or Treats

I did something today that I have never done in my adult life.

I purchased a box of Trix cereal.

I have serious issues with the Trix Rabbit because years ago, “Trix Rabbit” was my nickname.

Before orthodontic intervention, my teeth were a hot mess. Because of that, a couple of boys in my Jr. High (now called Middle School) home room nicknamed me “Trix Rabbit”.  I haven’t been able to stand the sight of that stupid rabbit since then.

And even though I looked nothing like that idiotic rabbit, I have since refused to buy the cereal because it reminded me of those stupid boys calling me a stupid name.

Just to be clear, this is the way I looked back then,

It’s been 25 years, but I have never forgotten their words.

Fast forward to 2013.

I was snooping around on Pinterest and found a recipe for Trix treats. I knew immediately this was something the boys would like. The only problem is, I don’t buy Trix cereal.

But this morning?

I bought some butter, a bag of mini-marshmallows and Lord, help me, a box of Trix cereal.

Doesn’t it look like the Trix Rabbit is going after those marshmallows?

If you’ve spent any amount of time around here, you know that I have a few requirements for making a recipe.

  • Quick
  • Easy
  • Fail proof  (this one *might* be a stretch because it doesn’t take much for me to mess something up in the kitchen)

Ingredients

  • 1 regular size bag of mini marshmallows
  • 1 box of Trix cereal (about 9 cups)
  • ¼ cup butter

Instructions

  • Place the marshmallows and butter in a glass bowl and microwave for 2 minutes, 30 seconds.
  • Grease a 9×13 pan
  • Stir butter and marshmallow mixture.
  • Pour mixture over Trix and stir until all cereal is well coated. (It will be tough to stir, but keep at it!)
  • Spoon (or SHOVE in this case) into a large 9×13 pan and press down with a spoon.
  • Cut and enjoy.

Aren’t they pretty?

While I will probably never be a big fan of the Trix Rabbit, I am a HUGE fan of the Trix Treats.

And you will be, too!

Happy Halloween, y’all!

    Sounds too sweet for me – but you have overcome an emotional obstacle. Good for you! I love you. Cruelty is hard to forgive. I’m working on that one myself. May God help us both. ❤
