These are yummy! To be totally honest I didn't notice a huge difference between these and regular rice krispies treats, although it has been a loooong time since I had any. But they were definitely tasty and it's fun to put sprinkles in them for whatever holiday is coming up!!
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!)
6 cups crispy rice cereal
1 (1.75 oz.) container of sprinkles (or desired amount, it is easy to eyeball)
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.
Note from the blog I found this on:
***Note: Many readers have asked what to do with the remaining cake mix. If you would like to use it to whip up a batch of cake mix cookies, just measure out 6 oz. of the remaining cake mix, and combine it with 1/4 cup vegetable or canola oil, and 1 egg. Stir until mixed. Then form into cookie dough balls, and bake in a 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes.***
