Cake Batter Rice Krispie Treats

Growing up my mom didn’t make rice krispies treats that often. I’m not exactly sure why…she was the more gourmet treat or frosted sugar cookie kind of mom! And I didn’t mind one bit! And I still don’t mind!



My neighbor across the street always makes rice krispies! Extra Butter, Extra Marshmallows with M & M’s in them! She would bring me a plate and I would eat it all by myself after the boys were in bed!



So when I came across cake batter rice crispy treats I knew I had to do one thing. Add Extra Butter and Extra Marshmallows. And boy did it make it over the top! And I have made them every week since!


Well you start by melting the butter, adding the marshmallows, and the yellow cake mix. (sorry I forgot to take a pic)



Add the rice krispies and half the sprinkles.


Transfer to a baking dish (any size will do depending on how thick you want to treats) Also butter you hands so you can press them down without it getting stuck all over your hands.


See why its important to add those extra marshmallows! Makes it even more delicious! Trust Me!


Press down evenly and add the other 1/2 of the sprinklesLet sit for about 30 minutes ( if you can wait that long!) Then cut and enjoy!


Cake Batter Rice Krispies
How Sweet Eats

6 Tablespoons butter
1 16-ounce bag of mini marshmallows
1/3 cup yellow cake mix (just the powder)
6 cups rice krispies cereal
1 1.75 ounce container of sprinkles



Melt butter in sauce pan and then add marshmallows. Stir until they melt and then slowly add the cake mix while continuing to stir. Add rice krispies and mix well. Sprinkle half of the sprinkles while continuing to stir it all together. Don’t over mix it so the sprinkles melt and no longer look like sprinkles! Press into baking dish. Butter your hands and use them to press down the rice krispies evenly into the dish. Add the remaining sprinkles. Let sit for about 30 minutes. Then cut and enjoy. You can also use a buttered or sprayed knife to help make even cutting lines.
