Description

An easy recipe for cake batter rice krispie treats!


Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup (4 Tablespoons) unsalted butter
  • 1 (10 oz.) bag of marshmallows
  • 2/3 cup boxed yellow or white cake mix (the dry cake mix, not the batter)
  • 6 and 1/2 cups rice krispie cereal
  • 1/2 cup sprinkles

Instructions

  1. Spray a 11×7 baking pan with nonstick spray. Set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan over low heat, melt the butter. Add the marshmallows and stir constantly. Once the marshmallows are completely melted, stir in the dry cake mix. Remove pan from heat.
  3. Stir in the cereal until it is completely coated with the marshmallow mixture. Mix in half of the sprinkles. Press into prepared baking pan and top with the remaining sprinkles. When I press rice krispie treats into a pan, I use a spatula sprayed with nonstick spray, making it easier to press down. Press down lightly, as too much pressure will create hard rice krispie treats.
  4. Chill for at least 30 minutes and cut into squares. Squares stay fresh at room temperature for up to 1 week.

  1. I love birthday cake flavored anything, and these are no exception. I absolutely love the birthday cake Rice Krispies treats they sell in the store, but there is no comparison to freshly homemade rice Kristy treats. I made these exactly as directed and drizzled some melted white chocolate on top after they cooled and they are amazing. I foresee this recipe being used frequently in the future!
