  • 6 cups Trix™ cereal, divided
  • 1 tub (16 oz) Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy Vanilla Frosting
  • 2 tablespoons each of pink, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple sprinkles


  • 1
    Divide cereal so you have 1 cup of each color: pink, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple.
  • 2
    Place one color of cereal in a food processor and process until fine. Add 1/4 cup of frosting to the processor and process until mixture is fully blended. It will look a bit crumbly, but you shouldn’t have any clumps of frosting.
  • 3
    Scoop out the mixture and roll six balls. If you find the mixture is too dry to roll, return to the processor and mix in another teaspoon of frosting.
  • 4
    Pour 2 tablespoons of the same color sprinkles in a shallow bowl. Roll balls in the sprinkles. If the balls get a little misshapen after rolling in the sprinkles, just roll them again between the palms of your hand. Set on a baking tray.
  • 5
    Repeat with the other 5 colors of cereal, cleaning out the processor between each. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before packaging or serving.
