Trix Marshmallow Treats Recipe

Since my daughter was 2 or 3 years old, we’ve had a family tradition of letting her pick out as many things at the grocery store as she is years old (3 things at 3 years old, 6 things at 6 years old, etc).

Eventually, I’ll probably have to put a cap on the number of items she gets, but so far it’s been great for limiting the requests and encouraging her to try new foods.

Usually, she uses up the majority of her requests before we leave the produce area – but usually one or two treats make their way into the cart, which I’m totally okay with.

Recently, she requested this box of Trix cereal – which was an odd choice, because she is not a cereal eater. But, into the cart it went and she did try an obligatory bowl of the cereal when we got home.

Since then, it’s been sitting in our cabinet for a couple of weeks, so I needed to come up with a fun way to use it up. These Candy Apple-inspired treats are a fun option for Halloween parties or classroom treats.

I love that the stick adds some whimsy and also serves a very practical use in helping keep the kids hands from getting sticky when enjoying these. (Plus the fun play on “Trix or treats” is something you can have a bit of fun with.)

These Trix Marshmallow Treats are super easy for the kids to help make – just wet or oil their hands to prevent the marshmallows from sticking to them while they shape the “apples.”

Tip: keep extra oil or water on hand to coat your hands to prevent the marshmallows from sticking when forming the Trix balls.

Kitchen Tools You May Find Helpful

  • Popsicle Sticks
  • Microwave-safe mixing bowl
  • Wooden spoon or spatula <– I like these spatulas because they are one solid piece and don’t have removable heads for bacteria to get trapped underneath. Plus they are heat-resistant and have a lifetime warranty.
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Cookie sheet

How to Make Trix Marshmallow Treats

Line a cookie tray with parchment paper and set aside.

Place the marshmallows in a large microwave-safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds.

Stir well and then re-heat as needed to get a smooth, melted texture.

Add the butter or coconut oil and stir to fully incorporate.

Fold in the Trix cereal one cup at a time until completely incorporated.

Wet or oil your hands thoroughly and shape 1/2 cup to 1 cup of the treat mixture into balls and then set on the cookie sheet.

Repeat with remaining Trix cereal mixture.

You may find it easier to add the popsicle sticks now or after the treats have hardened.

Set in the fridge to harden for 2 hours or overnight.
