Birthday Cake Batter Crispy Rice Treats

My awesome, amazing friend Mika has a FANTASTIC cooking blog called Mika's Pantry.  If you want to try some new, exciting recipes then head on over, her blog is great!  When we go visit Mika I feel like we are staying at a bed and breakfast.  Mika pulls out her BEST recipes and cooks like crazy while we are there, we leave stuffed like some fat, sassy pigs...LOL.  Mika's family and our family were given a very special gift of adopting from South Korea.  The bonus gift that God gave me was a special friendship with Mika, her husband Jim and their wonderful family. I'm getting all teary eyed just thinking about it.  Today is her birthday and I asked her for a guest post and she came up with this amazing birthday cake batter crispy rice treats.  Leave her a comment and maybe even a birthday wish!

March is a big birthday month for our family, my daughter Bay
and I have a birthday 3 days apart!   Next Friday Bay is having a
sleepover for hers and I'm planning on serving these yummy treats to 
all the girls.  I thought I had better try out the recipe this weekend just to 
make sure it was good.  You know I HAD to make sure.  I couldn't
take that chance that they might not be good.  Maybe that's why I 
kept going back for another one.... just to make sure mind you.....  

Birthday Cake Batter Crispy Rice Treats

3 Tbsp. butter
1 (10 oz) bag regular size marshmallows
1/4 cup dry cake mix
6 cups crispy rice cereal
1 (1.75 oz) container of sprinkles

Melt butter in a dutch oven over low heat and add marshmallows.  Stir until 
melted and add in dry cake mix and stir until combined.  Stir in cereal and mix 
thoroughly.  Pour in 1/2 the bottle of sprinkles and continue mixing.  
Using a spatula coated with non-stick cooking spray, press batter into a baking 
dish.  Top with the remaining sprinkles.  Let sit for a few minutes to firm up a bit.  

Well the verdict around our house is that they are even better that the
original treats and much cuter, if I do say so myself.  Come on and 
join the cake batter craze!  It's yummilicious!
