How to make it
- 1 bag (10 oz.) mini marshmallows
- 6 cups rice krispies cereal
- 4 Tablespoons butter
- In large pot melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
- Add rice krispies cereal and stir until well coated.
- Using buttered hands, form and press mixture evenly into round baking pans coated with cooking spray or rubbed with butter. Let cool completely.
- Run a knife around the edge of the treats to loosen it from the sides of the pan, and remove the formed mixture.
- Stack the rounds on top of each other to form a single “cake” and gently knead the seams so they blend together.
- Alternatively, you can add a layer of icing between the cake layers, and on top. This will resemble a naked cake.
Serve on cake pedestal and cut with a knife to serve.
Use two 8-inch or 9-inch round pans, or three 6-inch pans to form your rice krispie treat cake layers.
You can add icing to the cake if you like. Cover the whole thing like a traditional cake, or simply add a layer of frosting on top of each layer of cake.
Enhance the decoration further by adding sprinkles into the rice krispie treat mixture, or on top of the frosted cake.
