I was assigned to bring a rice krispie treat to a beginning of the summer party. I decided to try my hand at the famous treat in cake form. And can I tell you – it was amazing! The cake is my favorite type of combination; easy to make, really good to eat, and creative to present. To make it you don’t even have to turn the oven on, perfect for the warm days ahead.
To make the rice krispies cake, make three pans of rice krispies treats. Since the layers will be very thick be sure to use an extra soft treat recipe. Here is my favorite; Melt 4 tablespoons of butter in a large saucepan, add in one 10 oz bag of marshmallows. Stir until marshmallows are about 85% melted (not all the way).
Take off heat source and add 7 cups of Rice Krispies cereal. Stir until well combined and pour into cake mold. Let dry about five minutes before popping out to dry completely for about an hour.
Using a cheesecake pan is the easiest option since you can pack the treats in tight and then pop them easily out. I molded each cake and popped them out to dry completely on wax paper.
Once the molds are made, stack and frost the cake!
PS. Here is the rest of the creative cake series.
