Cake Batter Rice Crispy Cake- Sweet Saturday!

Happy Sweet Saturday everybody! I have to say this is one of my favorite recipes I have ever made EVER! It was quick, gorgeous, and delicious. Everyone in my family went back for seconds. Rice crispy treats are a dessert that I love because it isn't ever super rich or heavy but rather sweet and light and filled with sugar none the less ;) You can frost this however you like. If you want to pour the rice crispy "batter" into two separate pans and then put frosting in between each layer, go for it. I just decided to color mine pink (duh!) and top with a few pearl sprinkles.
Rice Crispy Cake:
5 Tablespoons salted butter
1 10-ounce bag of marshmallows
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
5 cups rice cereal
1/2 cup dry white or yellow cake mix (I use Betty Crocker Gluten Free Yellow Cake Mix)
1 10-ounce bag mini marshmallows
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
4 ounces cream cheese
4 cups confectioners' sugar
A splash of milk
Which ever food coloring or sprinkles your little heart desires :)
Rice Crispy Cake:
Grease your standard cake pan or two small cake pans
Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat
Once butter is completely melted, add 10-ounce bag of larger marshmallows, salt, and vanilla extract and stir until marshmallows are mostly melted
Remove from heat
Add dry cake mix and rice cereal, folding continuously until the cereal is completely coated with the marshmallow mixture
Stir in mini marshmallows as evenly as possible
Press evenly into greased cake pan(s) and let sit for at least 15 minutes
Add butter and cream cheese to the bowl of a stand mixer and beat until smooth
Add confectioners' sugar one cup at a time
Add vanilla extract, a splash of milk, and food coloring and mix until fully blended
You can now remove your rice crispy cake from the pan(s) and frost however you would like!
I heart love how easy this is and how great of a snack this is. I hope you haven't missed my other Rice Crispy addictions!
