First of all, HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!! I adore Halloween. I love the costumes, the candy and the kiddos!! I'm not a huge fan of dressing up myself but, I do enjoy the trick-or-treaters. I cannot wait for our first trick-or-treater to show up tonight!!! Eeek!!!
Second of all, this is the first time I have successfully made Rice Crispy Treats. Yep, you heard me. I understand that they are the most generic and easy things you can make but my dad has always made them. He is THE best Rice Crispy Bar maker around...people rave about them. So, no pressure making them, the daughter of THE Rice Crispy Bar maker.
I made them once for my grandpa when he was staying with my parents since my dad was out of town. I thought, no biggie, I'll just make a pan. Ah, I'm not sure what happened but it was not good. The marshmallows didn't melt right and the whole thing was a disaster. Not thiiiiis time. These turned out great, with a little addition of cake batter these things are fantastic.
Enjoy and HAPPY HALLLLLOOWEEEEN!!!!!!
Musical Selection: Monster Mash. Oh come on, you knew that was coming.
Oh yah, that tastes bad.
Super easy, and tasty Halloween Treat!
Dipped Cake Batter Rice Crispy Treats
2 bags mini (or regular) marshmallows
1 stick of butter
1/2 cup cake batter mix (yellow or white)
1 box (regular size) Rice Crispy Cereal
1 whole package of Almond Bark
Start by melting the butter in a large pot. Add the marshmallows. Once the marshmallows start to melt, add the cake batter mix, one spoonful at a time. Keep stirring until the marshmallows are completely melted.
Then add the cereal. Stir until completely combined/coated. Put into a greased 9x13 pan (preferably with straight sides). Press/flatten with a spatula. Let cool and harden for about 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes, flip onto parchment paper. Cut into bars. Then, melt almond bark in the microwave as directed on the package.
Once melted, dip half of the bars into the almond bark. Top with desired sprinkles.
