Okay, in honor of St. Patrick's Day, I'm giving you a taste of the rainbow! What are your St. Patrick's Day plans? How about you make up a quick and tasty treat for your family and friends?
I made this extremely addicting version of Rice Krispie Treats for my friend Annie's birthday last week. I wanted something easy (was making them after barre class at 9 pm) and portable (was taking the treats to the bar with me after work). Well, these definitely fit the bill and based on the fact that they disappeared in a flash, I would say that the treats were also a crowd pleaser. These treats seriously taste like funfetti cake and make for a really fun twist on the traditional recipe. The addition of the cake mix is kind of a genius trick, in my books, and now that I have so much leftover cake mix, I will probably have to make these again soon!
Funfetti Rice Krispie TreatsFrom Gimme Some Oven (originally from How Sweet It Is)
1/4 cup salted butter
1 (10 ounce) bag of mini marshmallows
5 cups Rice Krispies
1/3 cup yellow cake mix
2 tablespoons sprinkles
Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat and add marshmallows. Stir until they begin to melt, adding in (dry) cake mix one spoonful at a time so its combined. Stir in cereal so it is completely coated with marshmallow mixture. Sprinkle in half of the sprinkles and mix. Press into a baking dish (any size will do) and top with remaining sprinkles. Let sit for about 30 minutes before cutting. I find spraying a knife with nonstick spray helps to cut them cleanly.
