These are an oldie but a goodie in our house. Bennett’s birthday is still three weeks away but the way he’s talking about it, you’d think it was tomorrow!
Like all rice krispies, these were easy to make and virtually impossible to screw up!
6 cups Rice Krispies
1 bag of miniature marshallows
3 tbsp butter
1/2 cup yellow cake mix (the original called for less, but I liked a little more flavor)
Melt marshmallows with butter. Once it’s almost melted add the dry cake mix. Mix with the cereal. Once marshmallows are stirred in well add a lot of sprinkles. Don’t stir a whole lot once the sprinkles have been poured in because it dye will start to color your treats. Press into greased 13×9 cake pan. Add more sprinkles to the top and lightly press down so they stick. Let them sit for 30 minutes before cutting into them. (I like mine a little more gooey, so I add some more marshmallows!)
We made a pan when some cousins were over and loved them so much we made them again the next afternoon. Since you only use a 1/2 cup of the cake mix, you would hate to have any of it go to waste…so you must make these treats a couple days in a row. If you have very little self control, you can also put the extra mix in the freezer and save for another day!
Can you imagine other holidays…Fourth of July, Valentines, Christmas, Halloween…there are endless possibilites here!
