Thanks for stopping by! Let's get sweaty and figure out this whole parenting thing together!

Cake Batter Rice Krispie Cupcakes

I made them and they were delicious. Going into NYE I had a small problem. My oven has not been working. Well, it is working it just shuts itself off constantly because the heat sensor isn't working properly, and it makes baking and roasting and really anything done in the oven annoying. So I needed to make something to bring to our NYE party that didn't require an oven.  So these fancies from the magical world of Pinterest made the cut. I haven't made Rice Krispie treats, or as my father calls them "Runner's Fuel" in so long that I actually forgot that you didn't need an oven.

You will need the following:

  • 6 tbs margarine (3/4 of a stick)
  • 3/4 cup yellow cake mix
  • 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 3 cups Rice Krispies
  • 5 oz of marshmallows (they come in 10 0z)
  • 1 tbs sprinkles

You will do the following:

Melt margarine in the microwave (about 45 seconds). Mix in marshmallows and return to microwave for 30 second intervals, stirring between, until melted. Mix in cake mix and vanilla until combined. Add in sprinkles and 2 cups of Rice Krispies with a spatula. Add in the third cup of Rice Krispies.

Fill each well-greased muffin holder with the Rice Krispie mixture and press it in gently with the back of a spoon. Cool for 30 minutes in the refrigerator. Take them out and frost to your delight.

Now let me show you in picture form.
