We love rice krispies treats at our house! I mean who doesn't? They are quick, easy, and so delicious.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Wait Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
Servings: 12


  • 3 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 10 oz. bag of mini-marshmallows
  • 1/3 cup yellow cake mix
  • 5 cups crispy rice cereal
  • 1 1.75 oz. container of sprinkles


  • Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat and add marshmallows.
  • Once melted, stir the cake mix slowly into the melted marshmallows until it is combined.
  • In large bowl, combine the rice krispies and melted marshmallow mixture.  (I just used a large pot for melting the marshmallows, removed from heat and added the rice krispies at this time and mixed together.)
  • Add 1/2 of the sprinkles to the marshmallows and rice krispies while stirring.
  • Spray a 9x13 with cooking spray and press it down into the dish.
  • Sprinkle the remaining sprinkles on top.
  • Wait about 30 minutes before cutting and I also sprayed the knife with cooking spray to help them cut easily!


*With the remaining cake mix you can also made some cake batter cookies.  All you would have to do is measure 6 oz of cake mix and 1/4 cup canola oil and 1 egg.  Form that into balls and bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.

    1. I have changed that in the directions. You add the rice krispies as soon as the marshmallow mixture is melted.

    1. As soon as the marshmallow mixture is melted. Sorry I have gone ahead and changed that in the directions! 🙂
