OK Dads, this is for you. If you need a super quick mother's day treat (you did remember that Mother's Day is Sunday May 12 right?), that you AND the kids can make on your own, I have it for you!
An easy change up from regular rice krispie treats.
Made from Trix and Rice Chex cereals. WHY? I have lots of reasons.
1) Because Moms secretly love sugary cereals even though we won't feed it to the kids for breakfast
2) These are made with only 1/2 of the Trix and 1/2 with a more "healthy" cereal, so we will feel better eating like 1, 2 or 7 of them
3) We love colorful stuff, I mean look at these cute little rainbow swirled crisps of sweetness!
4) It's super simple with no baking needed. It's pretty much impossible to mess it up.
3 Tablespoons of butter
1-10 ounce bag of marshmallows
1/2 box of Trix
1/2 box of Rice Chex
Directions: Melt butter and marshmallow in a big pot. Turn off heat once all melty and add the cereals. Mix well. Let sit for 5 minutes. Wash your and kids hands, then spray your hands with non-stick spray (and enjoy the giggles that come from your kids as you do it!). Grab some of the mix and roll into a ball. Pop into a cupcake liner (of you know where those are kept-just make sure not to mess up the super specific order mom has stored them in!)
To be really fancy and to impress mom, you can wrap them in plastic bags and tie with a bow. But honestly we'd be so happy you made a treat for us from scratch, that would be totally over the top.
Just plopping them on a "nice" plate would be just as awesome!
And 5) You and the kids will love them too!
Happy Mother's Day to all the Wonder Woman moms out there, that do a little bit of everything! I saw a great description of how a moms mind works, it's kinda like having 50 web browsers open at all times. I totally agree with that! Enjoy your Sunday as well as each and every day. I hope you get some special treats made for you!
Here are more fun Trix treats too!
