{Recipe} Funfetti Rice Krispy Treats

Have you ever tried looking up Rice Krispy Treats?  There are essentially 75 different ways to spell the name of this super common treat.  But I guess you aren't really here for a spelling lesson. When I make desserts that are blog worthy, they mostly revolve around chocolate.  I love chocolate; chocolate cake, chocolate brownies, bars of chocolate, chocolate cookies, chocolate ice cream...I just love chocolate. Truthfully,  I don't really understand why you'd want to eat dessert that didn't contain at least a little chocolate.  
However, & I can't believe I'm saying this, chocolate isn't perfect. We were invited to a BBQ a few weeks ago & I knew I wanted to bring a dessert.  After spending a bit too much time scrolling through recipes, I decided chocolate outside in the heat was probably not a good idea.  I've had this recipe pinned for quite some time & I figured it was time to make my *gasp* first batch of rice krispy treats EVER.   I have to say, I was a bit nervous because I thought these sticky suckers would be really hard to make.  NOT EVEN CLOSE.  They were SO easy & the added cake mix made the treats a bit fluffier than normal.  I don't know that I'd ever want to make them without the cake mix again! Also, they're really really pretty.

Makes:12-14 bars depending on how big you cut them
Prep/Set time: 15 mins to pull together, 1 hour to set
How difficult was this for me? EASY. Sticky yes, but easy.

 4 Tbsp butter
1 (10oz) bag mini marshmallows
1/2 cup funfetti cake mix, dry
5 cups rice krispies cereal (less than one large box)
1 (1.75) jar of sprinkles

In a medium sauce pan, over low hear, melt 4 tbsp of butter

Add in bag of mini marshmallows & stir until completely melted. 
Remove from heat.  Add in cake mix & stir until completely mixed in
In a large bowl, combine marshmallow mix & rice krispies thoroughly. I used a spatula & spoon to make this happen.
You can add in some sprinkles but don't mix too well because the sprinkles will melt!
Pour mixture into a very well greased 9x13 baking dish.  
I ended up using my hands to spread out the treats.
Use remaining sprinkles & cover top.  Then let sit for an hour to cool off.
Cut & Serve!
