We were so excited to make these super fun Funfetti Rice Krispie Treats. We wanted to make something that would work as a birthday rice krispie treat to replace your typical cake.
Well, these definitely fit that bill. And they are SUPER easy to make!
How to Make Funfetti Rice Krispie Treats
These Funfetti Rice Krispie Treats are the absolute PERFECT replacement for your typical birthday cake. They actually look just like a birthday cake, but with the fun surprise of being a rice krispie treat instead of a typical cake underneath.
They’re sure to dazzle any guests with their creamy icing combined with the gooey rice krispie treat underneath. If you love Funfetti sweets, you might also try these Funfetti Cupcakes.
These are really quite easy to make especially if you know how to make Rice Krispie Treats already. Once you get bitten by the cake batter bug, also try out Red Velvet Rice Krispie Treats and Chocolate Pudding Rice Krispie Treats.
The first thing you’ll need to do when making these Funfetti Rice Krispie Treats is to get your marshmallows and better melted and mixed.
You can accomplish this either on the stove top or in the microwave. You’ll want to make sure that you melt them slowly as melting the marshmallows too fast will make them stiff.
You can melt them on the stove top on low to medium heat or in the microwave. I like to start at 60 seconds and then do 30 second increments until they are ready.
Once your marshmallows and butter are melted and combined, you’ll add your Funfetti cake mix. Make sure you store this in completely. It really adds a good flavor and texture in addition to the fun sprinkles throughout.
We really wanted suoer colorful treats, so we added some additional fun colored sprinkles at this point as well. That’s totally optional, of course.
Next, you’ll want to add in your rice krispie cereal. Make sure to get it mixed in well so that everything is coated all the way.
Then, you’ll want to spread your mixture into a pre greased pan. Do your best to get it spread evenly so that when you cut the treats they are even as well.
Once your treats have cooled – this usually takes about 20-30 minutes, you can spread Funfetti icing on top. Once the icing is down add on the sprinkles!
Then you can simply cut, serve and enjoy!
