Cake Batter Rice Krispie Treats

Kayla turns 8 a month from yesterday.

Holy Moses.

How did that happen?

Anyway, she wants a rainbow themed birthday party.

I stumbled upon some multi-colored goodness over at this blog.

And I think they will be perfect.

So I do what I always do.

Whipped up a batch for my favorite church folk.

Taste testers extraordinaire.

And the best part about any variation of the rice krispie treat?

Easy as pie.

Actually.  Who came up with that saying?

Pie is so NOT easy.

I hate making pie.

Easy as rice krispie treats.

That's way more accurate.

And they really are delicious.


3 tbsp butter

6 cups rice krispies

1/3 cup yellow cake batter dry mix (unprepped)

1 bag - 10 oz mini marshmallows

1 jar (1.75 oz) multicolored sprinkles

In large saucepan, heat butter and marshmallows on low until melted.

Slowly add dry cake mix, one small scoop at a time, to melted marshmallow mixture.

In separate bowl, add 6 cups cereal.

Fold in marshmallow mixture and 1/2 jar of sprinkles

Press into any size baking dish.

Top with the remaining sprinkles.

Let sit for 30 minutes before cutting.



Hope's home group meets tonight at 6:30.

Come.

For Ephesians.  And rainbows.

  1. I am so there.

    Cake Mix and Rice Crispie treats are delicious enough. And then you had to go add rainbows? It's like the cherry on top.....could you put a cherry on top?

  3. If I wasn't knee deep in homework and
    waiting for the pizza I ordered my family
    {true story - i do NOT feel like cooking today}
    then I would be on my way.

    Because both Ephesians AND rainbows are pretty awesome.
