Cake Batter Rainbow Rice Krispies Treats

We make a lot of Rice Crispy Treats, sometimes we add chocolate and make them into Nest Cakes, sometimes I melt a load of Marshmallows and sometimes if I have left over bits of biscuits and raisins I will add those in with some chocolate and have our very own version of Tiffin. When on Pinterest I saw Cake Batter Rice Krispies Treats I was really excited because it looked delicious. Only problem being it was in American measurements and so I had to use my special skills to turn it back in to English measurements and of course I couldn't not add my own special touches!

Pippa's English Measurements Cake Batter Rainbow Rice Krispies Treats Recipe

3 Tablespoons Butter
280g Marshmallows (I used mini ones and medium sized ones as that's what I had)
4oz Sponge Cake Mix
100g Rice Krispies
50g Rainbow Drops (I may have over sprinkled and used closer to 60g)
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
Cake Sprinkles


Grease a 9inch Square Pan and Mix the Rice Krispies and Rainbow Drops.

Melt the butter in a large saucepan over a low heat and add the marshmallows. 

Let the marshmallows melt and add in the cake mix a spoonful or two at the time. 

Add the Vanilla Extract and then mix in the Rice Krispies and Rainbow Drops until it is all covered in the melted butter/marshmallow/vanilla mix

Sprinkle in some sprinkles and mix it around before pressing into the baking tray and scattering some more sprinkles on top. I found it was better to leave more for the top than sprinkling in as they seemed to melt. Maybe English Sprinkles aren't as good as American ones?!

Leave the mixture and tray to set for at least thirty minutes. I put mine in the fridge, but I don't think that you have to do that.

Once set cut into squares and store in an air tight container with heavy noisy things on top so that everyone will know you are sneaking a piece because they are really addictive and you might not be able to stop at one.
