Trix on Sticks

This is such a fun recipe for kids!
It's pretty much just Rice Krispies treats...minus the Rice Krispies.
Supplies needed:
1 box of Trix cereal {10.7 oz.}
1 bag of small marshmallows
1 stick of butter {you won't use it all}
1 pkg of mini jumbo sticks {tongue depressors}

In a microwave safe bowl, add 1 pkg of small marshmallows and 3 Tbs of butter.
Cook for 3 minutes on high
{keep your eye on it - every microwave is different}

Next, butter your spatula.
It makes stirring all that stickiness SO much easier.

Add about 3/4 of the box of Trix cereal to the bowl of warm marshmallow-e goodness and stir well.

Let the Trix mix cool for about 10 minutes
{The balls stick together better when the marshmallow has cooled a bit.}
While you're waiting, butter a pan to place the finished balls on.
When you're ready to start, butter your hands so the mixture doesn't stick to you either.
{**Tip: re-butter your hands after each ball.}

Grab a fistful of Trix mix, roll it into a firm ball in your hand, then stick a stick in the middle of it.

Place it on your pan and that's it!

They're sure to please!
