Cake Batter Rice Crispy Treats

So from now on, just assume that all my recipes that I'm trying out come from Pinterest. This one is no exception. =) (You can find the original here)

These are so much better than regular rice crispy treats! They really do taste like cake better plus you get them yummy crunch from the cereal. I topped it with green sprinkles for St. Patrick Day and plan to make another batch for Sunday dinner.

  • 3 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 (10 oz.) bag of mini-marshmallows
  • 1/3 cup yellow cake mix (the dry cake mix, not prepared into a batter!)
  • 6 cups crispy rice cereal
Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat and add marshmallows. Stir until they begin to melt, adding in (dry) cake mix one spoonful at a time so its combined. Stir in cereal so it is completely coated with marshmallow mixture. Sprinkle in half of the sprinkles and mix. Press into a baking dish (any size will do) and top with remaining sprinkles. Let sit for about 30 minutes before cutting. I find spraying a knife with nonstick spray helps to cut them.

This recipe was an absolute hit with the family. The cake batter is just enough to add a new twist. Definitely a keeper!
