While this certainly isn't an original recipe, it's definitely a twist on the classic well-known treat. Most of us remember making this treat with our moms, but with this recipe, there's a slight note of the cayenne with each bite - certainly for the adult in all of us and it brings back childhood memories.
Trix Crispies with Candied Pineapple
by Glenn Edwards
1/4 cup butter
1 7-ounce container of marshmallow cream/fluff
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 teaspoon of cayenne (or something similar to Slap Ya Mama)
6 cups of General Mills Trix cereal
1 cup of diced candied pineapple
In a large saucepan, melt butter over low to medium heat. Add marshmallow fluff and stir until the fluff and butter are fully incorporated. Add vanilla and cayenne and stir until well mixed. Then add half of the General Mills Trix cereal and candied pineapple and mix well, then add remaining General Mills Trix ensuring that the cereal is completely coated. Remove from heat.
Immediately place the mixture in a 12 x 9 x 1 inch baking sheet lined with wax paper. Use either a silicone spatula that's been coated with cooking spray or another sheet of wax paper to press evenly into baking sheet.
Let the mixture cool then cut into squares.
