Marshmallow Treats 2 Ways

I’m sure you’ve all had a rice krispie treat at some point. Whether it be the store-bought type in the shiny blue wrapper or the sweet gooey goodness you make in your own kitchen. Let’s be real, the shiny blue wrapper ain’t got nothin’ on the kind you make at your house. At least for me, they don’t taste alike at all.

And my husband? Loves a rice krispie treat. I distinctively remeember a time when we were dating (and our metabolisms were much, much faster) him sitting down with an entire pan of freshly pressed treats and nearly polishing them off. But be warned, he doesn’t think you should add anything to them. I’ve mixed in peanut butter, chocolate, Nutella, you name it, he didn’t like it.

In fact, he insisted that you shouldn’t “mess with them at all, just cereal, butter and marshmallows”

When I stumbled across a recipe for cake batter rice krispie treats I just knew this would change his mind. And boy did it ever.

 Cake Batter Rice Krispie Treats
6 cups Rice Krispie cereal
1 bag of mini-marshmallows plus about 1/3 of another (sorry I’m not sure about the exact measurements I kept adding more because it thickened up after the cake mix was added)
4 tablespoons of butter
1 c of dry cake mix (I used Duncan Hines yellow cake mix)
1 container of sprinkles (1.75 ounces)

Melt butter in a large mixing bowl and stir around marshmallows to coat them with the butter. Microwave in 30 second intervals unril marshmallows are melted.
Mix in the dry cake batter.
Slowly pour in Rice Krispies cereal and mix well.
Mix in sprinkles.

Coat the bottom of a 9X13″ pan evenly and generously with butter and pour in mixture. Coat a spatula with butter and press down evenly. Let cool in the fridge before cutting into squares.

Or enjoy them while they’re still warm…

And because that wasn’t enough we went all out with the marshmallows this week and made these little St. Patrick’s day inspired snacks too.

 Luck Charms Treats
6 cups of Lucky Charms cereal
1 1/2 bags of mini-marshmallows
4 tablespoons of butter

green food coloring
1 bag of white chocolate chips for melting

Melt butter in a large mixing bowl and stir around marshmallows to coat them with the butter. Microwave in 30 second intervals unril marshmallows are melted. Slowly pour in Lucky Charms cereal and mix well.

Coat the bottom of a 9X13″ pan evenly and generously with butter and pour in mixture. Coat a spatula with butter and press down evenly. Let cool in the fridge before cutting into squares.

Once the sqaures are cut melt white-chocolate chips and use food coloring to dye the melted chocolate green. Dip the bottom of the treats into the white-chocolate and let cool on a sheet of wax paper.

    Am I the only one who has trouble melting white chocolate? I tried melting some white chocolate chips for bark this winter and it never got runny like milk chocolate. It got soft, but never pourable/dipable. Am I missing a step?

  6. We just made these and they were so good! I have found that regular chocolate chips don’t melt very well, the kind that works should say that it is meltable on the package.
