Easy Cake Batter Rice Krispie Treats by sallysbakingaddiction.com

It’s no secret that I love cake batter flavored everything.

It was only a matter of time until I expanded my recipe archive to feature cake batter rice krispie treats too.

Gooey,  super marshmallow-y, full of colorful sprinkles, and bursting with that cake batter flavor you love. Do I need to convince you more to make these NOW? 😉

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

Directions:

  1. Spray a 11x7 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. Hi!
    Can you freeze the leftovers to save them for another time?
    I’ve never tried that with Rice Krispie Treats, so I wanted to double check!
    thanks!

  2. I have made many of your recipes and you are a go to when I am thinking of something sweet for my family. Your roll out sugar cookie dough is my family’s favorite cookie at all the holidays. These did not work for me. I followed the directions, and used fresh ingredients, I enjoy baking and have been since I started learning in the 3rd grade. These were so challenging to stir after I added to cake mix, like a workout. And, then adding the cereal was torture, and then the sprinkles? The whole thing was too firm by then, unlike usual rice krispie treats. I questioned the 11×7 pan at that point, but it was greased, so I used it. They are so hard to cut and to take a bite out of. I cut them up for my son who won’t eat chocolate and that is why I made them (backup plan for my Dad’s bday party). He told me they tasted good, but he just couldn’t chew them. I love the idea, but not sure if the cake mix needed some moisture or something.
