I have been searching Pinterest for some simple, sweet treats for back to school snacks, lunches and treats….and I’ve found several I want to try.
Cake Batter Rice Krispies Treats:
A fun no-bake treat for kids and adults, alike! C’mon, who doesn’t love cake batter and sprinkles!?
- 3 Tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 (10 oz.) bag of marshmallows (or 10 ounces of standard sized marshmallows)
- 2/3 heaping cup dry yellow or white cake mix (boxed or homemade)
- 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
- 1/3 cup (1.75 oz bottle) sprinkles
Lightly grease a 9×13-inch pan with nonstick spray. Set aside.
In a very large sauce pan, melt the butter over low heat. Stir in the marshmallow and melt while stirring constantly. Once the marshmallows are just about completely melted, remove from the heat and stir in the dry cake mix a few spoonfuls at a time to ensure it blends.
Mix in the Rice Krispies and combine until coated with the marshmallow. Shake in a few sprinkles at a time, and mix. Add a few more, mix again. Continue this process until the sprinkles are evenly distributed among the Rice Krispies and you use up about 3/4 of the sprinkles.
Transfer the mixture to the prepared dish and gently press into the pan so the top layer is flat and even. Distribute the remaining sprinkles evenly over the top. Wait 30 minutes before slicing into squares. These are best served right away or the same day, but will last a few days in an air tight container.

Chocolate Oatmeal Drop Cookies:
2 cups sugar
3 cups oats
