Cake batter rice krispie treats
These kick your traditional marshmallow cereal treats into high gear. They’ve become the snack of choice around here for my kids and their cohorts, and if any happen to last more than a day, they get packed into lunchboxes for school. But trust me, they don’t last long. They’re very hard to resist.
Recipe: Cake Batter Rice Krispie Treats
(recipe from How Sweet It Is)
3 Tbsp. butter
10 oz. bag of marshmallows
1/4 c. dry yellow cake batter
6 c. Rice Krispie cereal (Cheerios are great too!)
sprinkles or jimmies
Lightly coat a 9 x 13″ baking pan with cooking spray. Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat and add marshmallows. Stir until they begin to melt, adding in 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 baking pan and top with remaining sprinkles. Allow to cool before cutting.
