Cake Batter Rice Crispy Treats

I found this recipe on How Sweet It Is– she is so creative, I don’t know how she comes up with her recipes but I love them! I made these for my friends BBQ last weekend and they were a hit. They look like normal rice crispy treats with sprinkles but when you take a bite out of them you will become an addict. The secret is a ¼ cup of yellow cake mix, it really makes a difference! This is great desert item to bring to any party, picnic, or event.

This is also a great recipe of your gluten free or have friends that are. These treats taste like cake and have the gooeyness from the marshmallows and the crunchy texture from the rice crispys. The sprinkles make them look like funfetti too!

Cake Batter Rice Crispy Treats


  • 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
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. This will help the cake mix completely dissolve.
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) and top with remaining sprinkles. Let sit for about 30 minutes before cutting. I find running a knife under hot water helps to cut them.
Have a great weekend!
