Cake Batter Rice Crispy Treats!

Happy 4th of July! We are going to a pool party later today, so I looked up this simple Rice Crispy Treat recipe made with dry cake mix and sprinkles. It’s the perfect kids (and adults) treat and easy to eat at the pool! My friend Armi made some recently and it reminded me of the recipe I had saved on my “Baking” Board on Pinterest.

I copied the recipe from http://www.gimmesomeoven.com/cake-batter-rice-crispy-treats/

Cake Batter Rice Krispies Recipe
(Slightly adapted from How Sweet Eats, updated in June 2013)

Ingredients:

  • 4 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 (10 oz.) bag of mini-marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup yellow cake mix (the dry cake mix, not prepared into a batter!)
  • 5 cups crispy rice cereal
  • 1 (1.75 oz.) container of sprinkles

Method:

Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat and add marshmallows. Stir until they begin to melt, then remove from heat. Whisk in the (dry) cake mix, then stir in cereal so it is completely coated with marshmallow mixture. Sprinkle in half of the sprinkles and briefly stir. (Don’t stir too much or the sprinkles will bleed out their color.) Press the mixture 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 cleanly.
