This was my first shot at homemade rice krispies and I’m so glad I tried it. It was the easiest recipe to follow and only took about 15 minutes. And they are so delicious. Everyone loves a rice krispy treat… It certainly brings me back to elementary school with that shiny blue wrapper!
The cake flavor adds a whole new element and makes them even better!
3 Tbsp. of butter
1 (10 oz.) bag of marshmallows
1/3 – 2/3 cup yellow cake mix
6 cups rice krispy cereal
1 (1.75 oz) container of sprinkles
What to do:
In a large saucepan, over low heat, melt the butter and then add in the bag of marshmallows. Stir until they begin to melt. Add in the cake mix one spoonful at a time so it’s combined. Taste the mixture to get the desired cake flavor. Stir in the cereal so it is completely coated with the marshmallow mixture. Pour in half the sprinkle container and stir. Press into a baking dish (any size depending on how thick you wants your treats) and let sit for about 30 minutes before cutting into squares.
I love the color that the sprinkles add. It makes them more fun!
