20
cups Trix™ cereal (from two 14.8-oz boxes)
2
boxes (5 oz) Betty Crocker™ Fruit Roll-Ups® Blastin' Berry Hot Colors® chewy fruit snacks, if desired

  • 1 Line 6x2-inch, 8x2-inch and 10x2-inch round cake pans with foil, leaving edges of foil hanging over sides of pans. Spray with cooking spray.
  • 2 Place 1/3 cup butter in 4-quart microwavable glass bowl. Microwave uncovered on High about 1 minute or until melted. Add 7 cups marshmallows; toss to coat. Microwave about 2 minutes, stirring after each minute, until marshmallows are completely melted and mixture is well blended. Add 10 cups cereal; mix well.
