I have loved eating and making Rice Krispie Treats for just about as long as I can remember. Even as an adult you'll find me reaching for this treat above many more 'sophisticated' things at any sort of potluck.
Then I found out that you can add to them and make them EVEN BETTER! While I still think the original recipe is the best, it's fun to change it up once in a while.
I first saw the Cake Batter Rice Krispie treat come through my Pinterest feed and it linked back to the recipe at Gimme Some Oven. One thing about me, I am thorough, which in this case meant I read through all the hundreds of comments.
I ended up using the original recipe on the Rice Krispie box and added 1/3 cup of Pillsbury strawberry cake mix to the melted butter and marshmallows. There really was just a nice hint of strawberry cake flavor! And it made a beautiful, pastel pink color, but for my purposes I wanted Power Pink and added 3 drops of red food color. Once I pressed the treats in my 13x9 pan I added a light mist of sprinkles on top just for fun.
