Birthday Cake Rice Krispy Treats

  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 (10-ounce) bag marshmallows
  • 1/3 cup dry yellow cake mix
  • 6 cups of rice krispy cereal
  • 1 container of sprinkles of your choosing (optional to use whole container...I used half of the container since I was making these for a class of 16 3&4 year olds)
  • Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat. Add marshmallows to pan once butter is melted. Stir slowly until they melt.
  • Stir in the cake mix, a spoonful at a time, to the melted marshmallow mixture until well-combined.
  • Stir in cereal until completely coated with marshmallow mixture. Stir in half the container of sprinkles.
  • Press into pan size of choice...the bigger the pan, the more thin the treats, etc. Sprinkle the top with the remaining half of sprinkles.
  • TIP: I have found that lining the pan in parchment paper makes it super easy to pull the treats out of the pan for even cutting.
  • Allow to sit for at least 30 minutes and enjoy!
