To make the Fruity Fro-Yo Fun Bars, line an 8 by 4-inch loaf pan with foil. Divide 14 ounces condensed milk evenly between 2 bowls. Stir 12 ounces key lime pie yogurt into one bowl. Stir 12 ounces strawberry yogurt into remaining bowl. Spread key lime pie mixture into the foil-lined loaf pan. Sprinkle with 1 cup Trix cereal. Gently spread the strawberry mixture on top. Freeze at least 8 hours until firm. To serve, use the foil to lift frozen loaf from pan. Pull back the foil and remove. Let stand 5 to 10 minutes. Cut into eight 1-inch slices.

Another option is to make Colorful Cookie Pops. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Combine 1 cup sugar, 1 cup butter, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and 1 egg in large bowl until smooth. Stir in 2 2/3 cups flour. Divide dough in half. Stir 6 drops red food coloring into one half of the dough; stir 6 drops green food coloring into the other half of dough.

Make 1 1/2-inch balls with the dough. Place the balls 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Insert a wooden stick into the side of each ball. Press the bottom of a glass onto dough, then dip into the sugar. Press on the balls until they are 1/4-inch thick. Press sprinkles into the dough. Bake 9 to 11 minutes. Cool completely before serving.
