I was looking on pinterest yesterday for a fun treat the kids would enjoy. Even though they eat most anything if it’s a dessert!! Just looking at the picture of these, I thought they looked like a fun treat for the kids…and….I just love rice crispy treats 😉 Basically you use the original rice crispy treat recipe and add cake mix and sprinkles. Sounds yummy, huh? These definitely won’t last long at our house!

3 Tablespoons butter
1- 10 oz. bag mini marshmallows
1/3 Cup yellow cake mix (the dry mix- not mixed up into a batter!)
6 cups rice krispies cereal
1- (1.75oz.) container of sprinkles
Melt butter in large saucepan over low heat. Add marshmallows. Stir until they begin to melt, adding in dry cake mix one spoonful at a time to make sure its combined well. Stir in rice krispies until they are completely coated with marshmallow mixture. Add half of the sprinkles and mix in. Press into greased 9×13 pan and top with remaining sprinkles. Let sit for about 30 minutes before cutting.
(The recipe I found online used 1/4 Cup of cake batter, but, I figured if I’m adding it I want to be able to taste it! next time I might even add a little more!)
