Cake Batter Birthday Cake Rice Krispy Treats

taken with my Instagram

It's that time of year again... that Birthday time of year! My baby turns 6 on Wednesday and while he is away I am getting all his goodies baked. This way they'll be hidden (in the basement) and he won't go looking for anything! I usually make cupcakes for his class but I wasn't inspired by anything terrible fun or creative this year. Since I also have to bake a cake (he'll have that night with us after dinner) I wanted something that was fairly light and relatively easy. I knew when I came across a recipe for Rice Krispy treats that involved cake mix and sprinkles that I had my answer!

This recipe could not be any easier, tastier, kid-friendly, mom-friendly!

6 cups Rice Crispies
3 tbs butter
1 bag of marshmallows
1 cup cake mix (white or yellow)
1/8+ cup sprinkles
24 Cupcake liners
Non-stick spray


In a large pot melt the butter, stir in the marshmallows and mix well.
Add the cake mix, and mix well
Add 2-3 tbs of sprinkles, mix well
Add the Rice Crispies
Mix well
Add another 2 - 3 tbs of sprinkles

Spray a small ice cream scoop with non-stick spray.
Arrange cupcake liners in cupcake tins and scoop the treats into each liner.
I added a few sprinkles by hand to the tops.

What kid won't love these?

What mom won't? In fact there should have been enough for 24 but somehow I ended up with just 23 :-) (It was deelish!)

Just made these for my daughter's daycare bday treat. Really good! Although I had some issues with them sticking to the liners but prob just because they were cheap liners. Thanx!
