Cake Batter Rice Krispy Treats

I've been thinking about making these rice krispy treats ever since I read about
them on How Sweet It is.
I knew Madison would love them since she loves rice krispy treats and she's crazy about cake batter ice cream. 

I decided to make them when I got home from work so that she would have them after cheerleading practice and I'm really glad I did because I found out she was hosting a small study group at our house....tonight!  Teenagers give you no notice about these kind of things.

What kind of food blogger would I be with no sweet treats in the house when teenagers came over?!

Well they were a big hit and I will definitely make them again and again. 
Homemade rice krispy treats are so much better than those store bought ones and the cake batter adds an extra kick of sweetness.  Make them today.  They're teenager approved!

Cake Batter Rice Krispy Treats
recipe from How Sweet It Is

3 Tablespoons butter
1 10 oz. bag of mini marshmallows
1/4 cup yellow cake mix
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
1 1.75-ounce container of sprinkle

Spray your bake dish with cooking spray and set aside.
Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat and add marshmallows.  Stir until they begin to melt, adding cake mix one spoonful at a time so it's 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 (mine was 9 x 13) and top with remaining sprinkles.  Let sit for about 30 minutes before cutting.

  3. What a interesting way to use Rice Krispy Treats!!

  4. These look great! I have yet to see something on your blog that I wouldn't make :) Does the leftover cake mix keep for another time or what did you do with it?

  5. Jemm - I put it in a plastic sealed container to save for making cake batter ice cream, more rice krispy treats and some more surprises to come. Thanks for your comment :)
