Cake Batter Crispy Treats

Sweet Treats

I think I'm having birthday party withdrawals. My celebration last Sunday was such a blast that I've been craving sweet festive treats all week long. I've also missed baking and (this chocolate eclair cake was my last food post!). I've been so busy with Glitter Guide and trying to save every penny that my baking passion has been put on hold. But, I hope to carve out time once a week to get back in the groove. While technically this recipe isn't really "baking", it was a good start.

I'm such a sucker for anything with colorful sprinkles. I made these more for the look of them rather than the taste, but I ended up with a pretty and scrumptious dessert....too scrumptious actually. I had to pack them up for my boyfriend to take to work so I would stop snacking on them!

Ingredients:
3 tablespoons butter
1 10-ounce bag of mini marshmallows
1/4 cup yellow cake mix
6 cups rice krispies cereal
1 1.75-ounce container of sprinkles

Directions
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.
