Birthday Cake Rice Krispy Treats and Oreo Rice Krispy Treats

on 07/13/2011

I don’t think i’ve ever met anyone who doesn’t love them.  They embody everything that’s wonderful about eating.  You’ve got your crunch factor.  You’ve got your sweet-with-the-hint-of- butter yummyness.  You’ve got your oooey-goooey-keep-stretching-that-marshmallow-string-till-it- breaks-this-is-what-the-perfect-childhood-memory-is-made-of component.  So, what’s not to love?!?

For the purists who say you cannot improve upon the Rice Krispy Treat and therefore should let sleeping dogs lie, i bid you adieu.  You will not like this post, so adios.  For everyone else, wake those puppies up and let’s tweak some Treats!

If you’ve never met my girls, let’s just say that, although they are sisters, they are rather like day and night.  Oh, they have their similarities but you couldn’t have asked for two more different people.  Birthday Cake Rice Krispy Treats embodies Ashley.  Ashley is the girl whose life, bedroom, clothing, etc is full of color.  She’s the adventurous soul who loves trying new things and isn’t afraid to embrace that inner child.  If anything, she flaunts her!  Stephanie is the more black-and-white personality.  She is a go-getter who sets goals and is always looking ahead but also has such an irresistible spirit about her.  She’s the dark chocolate-loving, deep-waters kinda girl.  She is the Oreo Rice Krispy Treat.

So here’s your two-fer.  Made the BCRKT this afternoon but there has to be an ORKT day in the future.  What kind of RKT are you?

Birthday Cake Rice Krispy Treats

1/4 cup butter or margarine

10 oz. pkg mini marshmallows

1/4 cup white or Funfetti  cake mix (i added more for flavor but it really makes it harder to stir in the cereal!)

6 cups Rice Krispy Treats


Melt butter in a large bowl in the microwave.  Add marshmallows and microwave one minute more.  Stir.  If not sufficiently melted, microwave at 30 second increments.

Gradually stir in the cake mix.  After mix has been incorporated, add the cereal gradually until completely incorporated.

Pour into a greased dish and top with sprinkles.

Oreo Rice Krispy Treats

1/4 cup butter or margarine

10 oz. pkg. mini marshmallows

6 cups Rice Krispy cereal

2 1/2 cups Oreo cookies, cut in quarters

You know the drill.  Melt.  Melt.  Add cereal and cookies.  Quit eating out of that bowl!  Pour that stuff into the dish and let it cool!
