22 May White Chocolate Cake Batter Rice Krispie Treats

White Chocolate Cake Batter Krispie Treats

It’s been a good week in Butterlust Blog land! Not that every week isn’t a good week. How can it not be when I’m surrounded by sugar and butter? But this week = extra good.

Why so good you ask? Well, two reasons.

First, thanks to all of you Pinners out there, Butterlust had it’s best traffic day yet! Over 1,800 visits in 1 day! I know that may not seem exciting but trust me, it’s a big deal! Knowing that people are out there enjoying my photos and recipes is a really great feeling!

Second, I registered to attend the 2013 BlogHer Food conference. You probably have no idea what that is. It’s ok, I didn’t either until recently.  Basically, I get to learn from the best of the best so I can keep improving my site for those of you who are equally as dessert obsessed as I am. Sounds like a good plan, right?

White Chocolate Cake Batter Rice Krispie Treats

Sometimes life calls for extra sweet krispie treats doused in colorful sprinkles. Mostly when you have something to celebrate. And trust me, you can pretty much find anything to celebrate.

These Cake Batter Rice Krispie Treats are SUPER easy to make and full of festive sprinkles.  And since they’re cake batter flavored, it’s almost like baking a cake without turning the oven on.

Or at least that’s what I’m telling myself. Enjoy!

White Chocolate Cake Mix Rice Krispie Treats


  • 4 tbsp butter (1/2 stick)
  • 6 cups rice krispie cereal
  • 1 bag (10.5 oz) mini marshmallows – about 6 cups
  • 2/3 cups yellow or funfetti cake mix (dry)
  • 1 bag white chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup sprinkles (more or less depending on how sprinkle-happy you are)


  • Spray a 11x7 baking pan with nonstick spray. Set aside.
  • In a large saucepan over low heat, melt the butter. Add the marshmallows, stirring constantly.
  • Once the marshmallows are completely melted, stir in the dry cake mix. Remove pan from heat.
  • Stir in the cereal until it is completely coated with the marshmallow mixture.
  • Mix in half of the sprinkles.
  • Press into prepared baking pan and set aside.
  • Note: Use a spatula sprayed with cooking spray to press the treats into the pan. Press down lightly, too much pressure will create hard rice krispie treats, and nobody wants that!
  • In a small microwave safe bowl, melt the white chocolate chips, stirring every 30 seconds.
  • Spread the white chocolate over the Rice Krispie Treats with a spatula and sprinkle with remaining sprinkles.
