Mel’s Diner

Sharp Knives, Raw Meat and Fire


Well, it was birthday time again at work and this time we decided to do something easy…Baker’s Day.  We did cookies, cakes and treats.  I did some of the treats…Rice Krispee Treats!   Sunday morning found me melting bag after bag of marshmallows in a saucepan with butter and pouring it over Rice Krispee-type store brand cereal.  Quickly stirring to combine as the mass immediately forms a sticky ball in the bowl and dumping inyo pans and forming with water-coated hands.

A favorite of my friends at work was the Fruity Pebble treat.  This is your basic Rice Krispee treat where 40% of the cereal is Fruity Pebbles.  Oh, my – as my friend Joe said, inspired.  I once made a 100% Fruity Pebble Treat – it was so sweet it was like sticking your face in a sugar bowl.  So, I’ve found it’s best to cut it by over half.  Just right.

This time I felt the need to try something new.  Something I never tried before – a Rice Krispee cake. 


For each layer:

  • 7 Cups of Rice Krispees
  • 10 oz bag of Marshmallows
  • 3 Tbls. Butter

Place the Rice Krispees in a large bowl.  Melt butter in large saucepan and add the marshmallows.  As soon as marshmallows start to melt, start stirring and continue until all of the marshmallows are melted.  Quickly pour over the cereal and equally as quickly stir – the mass will quickly (notice a pattern here?) form a ball.  Drop mass into a well greased 9” cake pan and press with wet hands to spread evenly.  Repeat with second pan and let cool.


Flip pans and frost like a normal layer cake. 


It was better than you think.

  1. Looks good, but next time don’t use frosting, use the same chocolate mixture for topping rice krispy bars and watch the excitment overflow!
