Cake Batter Rice Crispy Treats

It's Friday so it's time to make a treat for the kids.  Saw this on Gimme Some Oven and thought the kids would love it.  I was right!  Here's what you need:

Cake Batter Rice Crispy Treats {printable recipe}
  • 3 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 (10 oz.) bag of mini-marshmallows
  • 1/3 cup yellow cake mix (the dry cake mix, not prepared)
  • 6 cups crispy rice cereal
  • 1 (1.75 oz.) container of sprinkles

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 until it combines.  Stir in cereal and completely coat with marshmallow mixture.  Sprinkle in half of the sprinkles and mix.  Press into a baking dish (I used a 9 x 13) and top with remaining sprinkles.  Let sit for about 30 minutes before cutting.  Spraying a knife with nonstick spray helps to cut them.

Teri's Tip:

Once you get the marshmallows stirred in remove it from the heat before adding the sprinkles.  I kept it over low heat and the sprinkles started melting making the color not as pretty.  Have to make them pretty!

Have a good weekend everyone!
