Cake Batter Rice Krispies Treats

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I love cake like a fat kid loves cake. I love cake. Cake with AWESOME frosting to be exact (or is the truth that I just plain love frosting?). Anycake...

Adding cake mix to already awesome stuff to make it more awesome seems to be a baking trend as of late, so I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon. I got this recipe from How Sweet It Is, a baking blog that is just filled with ridiculously awesome recipes. These are easy to make and definitely a great twist on a classic treat.

Cake Batter Rice Krispies Treats

  • 3T butter
  • 10.5 oz mini marshmallows
  • 1/4 cup yellow cake mix
  • 6 cups rice krispies cereal
  • 1 1.75-ounce container of sprinkles (divided)
  1. Melt butter in big pot on stove.
  2. Add marshmallows and stir until melted
  3. Add in dry cake mix a few T at a time.
  4. Mix in cereal and half of the sprinkles
  5. Smash that crazily-colored mix into a greased 9x13 pan. 
  6. Throw the rest of the sprinkles on top and mash them in good.
  7. Let cool, cut and have a paaaaaaaaaaaaar-tay!
Let's discuss sprinkles. They should be chewy-crunchy, not crispy-crunchy. Avoid Betty Crocker's Parlor Sprinkles; whatever they are, sprinkles they are not. Lame. I really like the generic ones I get in Kroger.

These went over well in general, but my opinion was they were just OK. I think it was because I expected a stronger cake flavor. I think next time I'll stick with my regular ratio of butter (1T) and mallows (4c) and possibly add more cake mix. I also have plans for different cereal/cake mix combos in the near future.
