Trix Cereal Bark

Trix BarsWhen planning a big party where you are making most of the food, you want to make sure to include some quick and easy recipes so you’re not slaving in the kitchen all day.  Another good idea is to plan menu items that can be prepped in advance.  This Trix Cereal Bark fits both categories.

The presentation of these is perfect for kids’ parties.  You might think the combination is strange, but the flavor even wins over the adults.  It did at Judah’s party!

Although “Trix” is in the title, you can definitely use a generic brand cereal.  I used a generic brand for two reasons.  It was cheaper, and for some reason Trix is selling their cereal right now with swirled colors.  Not the look I was going for.  I wanted solid colored cereal balls to match the color theme of Judah’s party.  Yes, I panicked a bit when I saw only the new swirled Trix cereal at my usual grocery store.  But, I headed over to another store and found a generic brand that kept the solids.  Perfect!

To make these, just take a bar of white chocolate, melt it, spread it and pour Trix cereal over it.  That’s it!  Well, you then chill it and break it, but that’s the easiest of the easy!  That is, if you don’t count eating it.  🙂

Printable Recipe

8 oz white chocolate bar, broken into pieces
1 cup Trix cereal (or generic brand, as I used)

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Melt the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl for 1 minute (stirring half way).  Stir until smooth and pour onto prepare baking sheet.  Carefully spread chocolate into approximately a 10- x 6- inch rectangle, about 1/4- inch thick.  Scatter the cereal over the chocolate and gently press.

Chill until hardened.  Break into pieces and serve immediately or store in fridge.
