1 1/2 lb marshmallows
1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
12 cups rice crispy cereal
1 cup vanilla cake mix
1/2 cup sprinkles plus 2 tablespoons for sprinkling
Note: When making rice crispy treats it is important to thoroughly spray every utensil/ bowl/ pan with non-stick spray or butter them. When in doubt, spray a little extra.
1. Spray non-stick 9″ x 13″ pan and set aside. Place butter and marshmallows into large bowl. Microwave in 1 minute intervals, stirring well after each minute.
2. After butter mixture is melted and thoroughly combined, add rice crispy cereal and stir until just combined. Pour in sprinkles and cake mix and fold mixture until all ingredients are well dispersed throughout the bowl.
3. Pour rice crispies into pan and flatten with spatula. Let cool completely before cutting.
