Cake Batter Crispy Treats


Cake batter crispy treats...the rice crispy treat perfected.  

Adapted from Gimme Some Oven, I slightly tweaked this recipe for my recent girl's taco night, adding extra sprinkles and a dash of vanilla extract. Within hours of cutting the treats into perfect little squares I realized half of them had disappeared from the plate. I hunted down my husband, only to catch him crispy treat in hand! Since they are quick to whip up, I decided to make an extra batch before the girls arrived. By the end of the evening, there wasn't one crispy treat left! I see another batch in store for this week...




Cake Batter Crispy Treats
3 Tbsp. butter
½ Tbsp. vanilla
1 (10 oz.) bag of mini marshmallows
1/4 cup yellow cake mix
6 cups Rice Krispies 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 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.




You can never have enough sprinkles! I even threw in a few heart sprinkles that I had left over from a recent recipe.




Pretty, fun and tasty! Now hurry up and go make some!

  9. That looks good, and I bet if you use Trader Joes Rice Krispies, it's even healthier.

  13. I don't want to sound stupid but I have never made rice krispy treats before and I was wondering after you melt the butter and marshmellows do you take it off heat or do you leave it on low heat when your put in the cereal and cake mix?
