Cake Batter Rice Crispy Treats

Posted on

I had an open box of yellow cake mix in the pantry, so when I ran across this recipe I knew I had to try it out. I love crispy treats and this easy addition makes them even more fun.

Cake Batter Rice Crispy Treats
(from Gimme Some Oven)

3 T. butter
1 (10 oz.) bag of mini-marshmallows
1/2 c. yellow cake mix
6 c. crispy rice cereal
Rainbow sprinkles

Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat and add marshmallows. Stir until they begin to melt, adding in 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 9×11″ baking dish 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.
