Katie's Cake Batter Rice Krispie Treats [Tasty Tuesday]

Remember yesterday how I guest posted for my friend Katie at Strawberry Halls Forever?  Today I have a super awesome guest post for you all from the gorgeous Katie herself!  See what we did there?  We're friends, we help each other out!  ;)  She's sharing a super delicious, simple recipe that I can't wait to try!

Hey guys!  I am so excited to be guest blogging for Emily today!  I'm Katie, and I blog over at Strawberry Halls Forever. I write about my daily life with my husband, cat, and dog.  I love to write about my family, travel, fitness, and of course- food! 

Today I've decided to share a super easy and delicious recipe with you!  I just tried these Cake Batter Rice Crispy Treats and I am a little embarrassed to tell you how fast the entire pan was gone.  Thankfully, I shared them with a few friends, and they all LOVED them!  My husband also devoured a couple, and he is somewhat of a rice crispy connoisseur, if you will.  So grab yourself some cereal and marshmallows and go to town!

You make them just like regular rice crispy treats, but you add boxed cake mix into the melted marshmallows and butter.  

After combining the melty marshmallowy goodness with the cereal, give it a good mix and let it cool slightly before adding in your sprinkles.  The sprinkles will melt and bleed their color all over the cereal if you don't let it cool!

I pressed the mixture into a 9 x 13 baking dish and let it cool completely.  I had no trouble cutting out squares at all!  I thought it would be really sticky, but it cut really easily!

SO GOOD! You can really taste the cake batter flavor in these!  I think they would be super cute made with different colored sprinkles for different holidays.  Some of the comments on the original recipe also suggest using different flavors of cake mix- I'm definitely going to have to try that!  Red velvet rice crispy treats anyone??

The original recipe is from givemesomeoven.com and I pretty much followed it to a T.  I did add a little bit more of the cake mix, and I only used 1/2 the amount of sprinkles.

  • 3 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 (10 oz.) bag of mini-marshmallows
  • 1/3 cup yellow cake mix (the dry cake mix, not prepared into a batter!)
  • 5 cups crispy rice cereal
  • 1 (1.75 oz.) container of sprinkles
Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat and add marshmallows. Stir until they begin to melt, adding in (dry) cake mix one spoonful at a time so its combined. Stir in cereal so it is completely coated with marshmallow mixture. Sprinkle in half of the sprinkles and mix. Press into a baking dish (any size will do) and top with remaining sprinkles. Let sit for about 30 minutes before cutting. I find spraying a knife with nonstick spray helps to cut them cleanly.

Thanks for having me over for a guest post Emily!
xoxo, Katie
