Birthday Cake Crispy Treats

Today was bake sale day!  My oldest and some of his buddies did a bake sale to earn money for their scout camp coming up.  We got to make all kinds of yummy treats.  Rocky Road Fudge, brownies, Scotcharoos (the first to sell out!), Homemade Oreos, cup cakes and these tasty Birthday Cake Crispy Treats. 

1 (10.5 ounce) bag miniature marshmallows
1/3 cup butter
3/4 + 3 tablespoons dry yellow cake mix, divided
4 cups crispy rice cereal
12 oz white almond bark or white chocolate chips

Place marshmallows and butter in a large pan.  Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly to prevent scorching, until melted.  Remove from heat and stir in 3/4 cup dry cake mix until well mixed, then stir in crispy rice cereal and stir until thoroughly coated.  Pour into a foil lined and greased 7x11 inch pan and press down (I grease my hands and use my hands); let cool and set.  Remove the crispy treats and cut in half lengthwise, then cut into 1 inch thick bars (they will end up being about 3 1/2 x 1 inch bars).  Place almond bark in a microwave safe bowl and heat in 30 second increments, stirring after each 30 seconds, until melted.  Stir in the remaining 3 tablespoons dry cake mix.  Dip one end of each bar in the almond bark and sprinkle with sprinkles.

Recipe from The Royal Cook - an original!

  1. You are just so clever! What a wonderful way to "dress up" rice krispie treats.
    Did you wear the apron when making these? XOXO
