When I saw a link to this recipe for Birthday Cake Batter Rice Crispy Treats on the Sugar and Dots What I Whipped Up Wednesday Blog Party, I had to see what they were! Jade's tutorial is awesome so be sure to check her blog out as well as the super fun Blog Party at Sugar and Dots. I found all kinds of neato ideas there to try!
I tried Jade's recipe last week and loved it, but alas we are a chocolate family so I set out to make a choco version of the delectable snack. I used Cocoa Krispies and chocolate butter recipe cake mix. Hmmm...if only I could think of a way to use up the rest of those Cocoa Krispies... Nom nom nom...
For a mochaccino twist, a few drops of liquid coffee flavoring really adds a nice coffee punch and enhances the Cocoa Krispies' overall chocolaty goodness.
Sprinkles are totally optional, but so much fun! I plan on making both versions of these for the kiddo's upcoming birthday party!
I hope you enjoy these as much as we have!
1/2 stick butter (1/4 cup)
1 bag large marshmallows (approx. 40) or 4 c mini marshmallows
1/2 c chocolate cake mix
a few drops coffee flavoring
6 c Cocoa Krispies
- Heat butter and marshmallows over medium heat until smooth. Remove from heat and stir in cake mix and optional flavoring. Once smooth, mix in cereal.
- Pat into greased 9x13 cake pan. If you spray the bottom of a measuring cup with nonstick cooking spray, you can use that to pat them down without the treats sticking.
- Sprinkle with jimmies and cool.
