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!
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.
