Cake Batter Rice Crispy Treats

When I saw this recipe over at one of my favorite blogs, Gimme Some Oven, I knew they were something I needed to try.

I’ve been seeing all kinds of ways to fancy up the humble rice crispy treat in the food blog world lately and the perfect opportunity arose for me to join in. Some friends were having a gathering at their house and I asked what I could bring and dessert was requested.

Life has been really crazy around our house lately so I was wanting to do something quick and simple. And these were just perfect. They seem more dressed up but are just as easy as the plain ole’ variety.
Cake Batter Rice Crispy Treats
recipe from Gimme Some Oven

3 Tbsp. butter
1 (10 oz.) bag of mini-marshmallows
1/3 cup yellow cake mix
6 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 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.


  1. I made a similar recipe to this – coconut oil instead of butter and funfetti cake mix instead of yellow cake mix – last week. They are super delicious!!
