Too Tired to Try Tuesday: Trix Krispies Treats

1 Comment

My apologies for this coming so late in the day. I typically like to get my posts out in the morning, but I had some “technical” difficulties with this one.

I was searching for a craft to share this week since I did food last week, but then I came across a recipe with such visually pleasing photos that I just had to pass it along. And this is where I wanted to do a big drumroll-like introduction to the recipe by including one of the stunning photos for you to see, but alas, I was unable to obtain permission in time to use it.

Anyhoo, on with the show. This week I present to you, Trix Krispies Treats–a fun and colorful spin on Rice Krispies Treats. In addition to being so pretty, the recipe promises they are really quick and easy to make. Only 5 minutes of prep time, 5 minutes of “cooking” time, and 3 ingredients: marshmallows, Trix cereal, and butter.

And now because I love you fine people so much, and because I didn’t have any nice pictures to accompany this post, I took one for the team and actually made these bad boys. See, see . . .

So technically I wasn’t too tired to try them, but I can promise that I was tired when I made them. And my apologies for the less-than-professional quality of the photos. But you know, cell phone and all.

I must say, these are a good little treat. If you’d like to give them a try, click here to visit Cravings of a Lunatic for instructions (and to see her pretty pictures).

As always, if you try it, let us know how it turns out. And send some pics!

I’m no cooking or crafting guru, so I started these Too Tired to Try Tuesday posts to share craft and recipe ideas that I’ve come across and would really like to try but am just too damned tired (that sounds better than lazy, right?) to get around to. In addition to ideas that I find, I am open to submissions from you–either something tried and true or something you want to try but haven’t had the time to. Just send me an email at raisingwildthingsblog@gmail.com with your ideas, and I may share them here. (And by “may” I mean “will definitely”! I just confessed how lazy tired I am, so if you take the time to send me something to share, I’m going to share it!)
