I’ve mentioned before that I basically make cakes and cupcakes so I can eat the batter. Yes, I do it. Most people do. Be careful, it’s bad, blah, blah, blah.

So, back to this amazing recipe. Cake Batter Rice Krispy treats are not hard to make and only take about 10-15 minutes to pull together. Oh, and there are sprinkles. Lots of sprinkles. So you need these in your life.

Cook Time 10 minutes
Rest Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes


  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 4 cups mini marshmallows
  • 6 cups puffed rice cereal
  • ½ cup vanilla or funfetti boxed cake mix (dry)
  • sprinkles (I used 2 different types because…sprinkles!)


  • Prepare your pan with non-stick spray. I use a 9×5 pan because I like nice and thick treats but you can use a 13×9 also or whatever you have. Glass is best because they stick less and it's easier to clean.
  • In a large saucepot on medium-high heat, add the butter and melt completely. I always use a wooden spoon when making rice krispie treats, they are nice and stiff and clean pretty easily.
  • Once the butter is melted, add the marshmallows and stir constantly until they are fully melted and nice and creamy. Remove from heat immediatly.
  • Add the cereal and some sprinkles (unless you are suing funfetti mix) and stir quickly to fully mix in. Dump the mixture into your prepared pan and push down with your spoon to spread it all out. At this point, I spray my hands with non-stick spray and push everything down with my hands to get it nice and compact (be careful because the mixture may still be hot!). Add more sprinkles right away to the top and lightly press in with your hands as well.
  • Allow the treats to cool for at least 20 minutes before serving, longer if you can resist. Enjoy!
