Bible Lesson #3: Snap Crackle & Pop! Cake Batter Rice Crispies Treats

Being on the cusp of graduating college and joining adulthood, there is one thing that my college days have taught me - there is no midnight (or daytime) snack that you are too old for. While I have always been a fan of the original, gooey, and easy treats, I decided let's take it to the next level, and oh did we go there!

Yes - you may start drooling now, just don't get any on my treat!

 This is a super simple recipe to follow and fun to make/eat with the kids or a treat for yourself. It follows pretty closely with the original Rice-Crispies treat recipe, if you are familiar.


4 Tbsp butter
1 package small marshmallows (10.5 oz bag)
1/3 - 1/2 cup yellow cake mix powder
6 cups rice crispie puffs cereal
1 bottle sprinkles (I prefer Non Pareils)


Melt butter in a large pan on the stove. Begin stirring in marshmallows until melted. Right before it is completely melted together, start adding the cake mix powder in partial increments. Once all melted and mixed together, remove from heat and mix in well the cereal so that it is all covered. While stirring cereal in, add about half of the sprinkles.

Place in a 9x13 PAM'd pan, or a large travel Ziploc/GLAD container, or however you want to serve it. Sprinkle the rest of the sprinkles on top of the rice-crispies and lightly press down so they'll stick to the gooey goodness.

Let it set up about 10-15 minutes before serving... if you can resist that long.

*NoteIf they grow somewhat hard like they do at my house (if they make it that long!), cut out the size you want and throw in the microwave about 10 seconds to warm up the gooey goodness and make it just like when you first made it.
