While hopping around on the internet the other day I came across this recipe at Gimme Some Oven for Cake Batter Rice Crispy Treats, and my mouth started watering. Now, for the most part I don’t like to cook anything with mixes, I’m a ‘from scratch’ kind of gal. But there is something delicious about yellow cake mix batter. Sometimes I come across Cake Batter Frozen Yogurt and it takes all my willpower to resist the unique flavor that only yellow cake mix can provide.
I grabbed the ingredients at the store: Rice Krispies, butter, marshmallows, yellow cake mix, and some sprinkles. As I was checking out the Easter candy isle I found a sweet little deviled egg dish and the brilliant idea came to make the treats into egg shapes. Little enough for the sparkletots and perfect-sized for me to help prevent over-indulging (yeah right).
I melted the marshmallows and butter, just like making regular old Rice Krispy Treats and while the marshmallows were melting I slowly mixed in 1/3 cup of cake mix. I added the cereal and some sprinkles and mixed well.
To form the eggs I found it easiest to butter up my hands and then shape the treats. Although there are two things I should have done. One, I should have removed my ring, and two, I should have waited until the treats cooled a little longer, so they weren’t so gooey.
Easter eggs wouldn’t be easter eggs without some decorations, so I pulled out the writing icing and got to decorating.
But rice crispy type eggs aren’t very smooth and are a little tough to make pretty.
Next time I’ll just stick with sprinkles. I’ll give these ones to the kiddos..
And keep these ones for myself.
