A perfect treat to make and enjoy with your kids and your kids at heart! For tips and to bake-along live, just follow along with the video.
Funfetti Marshmallow Treats
1 cup boxed cake mix (I like to use yellow cake mix)
1/2 cup butter
16 oz mini marshmallows (plus more!)
1 t vanilla extract
8 cups rice cereal (a 12oz box is enough)
Sprinkles! I recommend jimmies at they won't bleed
Funfetti Ice Cream (No Churn!)
1/2 cup boxed cake mix (same as above!)
7 oz sweetened condensed milk (half of one can)
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 t vanilla extract
Melt the butter and mini marshmallows together in a large pot.
Once melted stir in the vanilla extract and cake mix.
Here you can either prepare a bowl with the rice cereal and pour your marshmallow mixture into it, or you can add your rice cereal right to the pot!
Gently fold in your sprinkles.
Grease a half sheet pan with cooking spray or butter.
Next grease your hands (yes!) and pour the marshmallow treat mixture onto the pan. Use your hands to press the mixture into the pan. You can check out ours at the 16:54 mark!
Allow the treats to set. (You can also just eat them right away, they will just be a little bit softer and less cohesive).
For the ice cream, whip your heavy cream and vanilla extract until it is stiff and holds its shape.
Combine the sweetened condensed milk and cake mix in a bowl.
Gently fold the whipped cream into the cake mixture.
Add sprinkles to your heart's content!
Pour into freezer-safe container and allow to freeze, about 4 hours. (This, too, is edible right from the get go but definitely won't have an ice cream consistency yet!)
Check out what the ice cream looks like after it has had time to freeze at that 25:25 mark!
Assembly: cut out two square of marshmallow treats of equal size, spread ice cream over one, top with the other, and then add more sprinkles! Voila! The perfect treat.
Enjoy every bite, you kids at heart!
A very special thank you to Chef Caleb for joining me for this bake-along!
You can absolutely freeze all components of this, including freezing assembled ice cream sandwiches.
