Cake Batter Rice Krispy Treats

I love cake mix!  It adds such a sweet and yummy flavor.
I saw this recipe over at Gimme Some Oven and knew it would be a smash hit at my home, and sure enough, it was! I don’t think we will ever make just regular rice krispy treats ever again!

Cake Batter Rice Krispie Treats... I may never eat regular rice krispie treats ever again! These are AMAZING!

recipe from: Gimme Some Oven

Cake Batter Rice Krispy Treats
A delicious approach to a classic treat!
Recipe type: Dessert
  • 3 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 (10 oz.) bag of mini-marshmallows
  • ⅔ cup yellow cake mix
  • 6 cups rice krispy cereal
  • ⅓ cup assorted sprinkles
  1. In a large sauce pan over low heat, melt butter.
  2. Once butter has completely melted, add marshmallows. Stir until they begin to melt, adding in cake mix one spoonful at a time so its combined. Make sure you taste a little bit to make sure it is as "cake batter" flavored as you would like.
  3. Gently stir in cereal to the marshmallow mixture until it is all completely coated.
  4. Add half of the sprinkles and stir gently to mix in.
  5. Press into a 9x13 baking dish sprinkle remaining sprinkles over the top. I spray my hands with pam so that the rice krispie treats won't stick to them while I press and I get a smooth top.
  6. Let it sit and cool for about 10-15 minutes to let the rice krispie treats firm up :)
