ABC's, Frosted Cake Batter Rice Crispies, and Homemade Cake Mix

I stole this from Gracie (whose blog I seriously cannot get enough of...also, you should go vote for her in the Women's Health blog contest), who found it circling the blog world.

A. Age: 20
B. Bed size: twin. I'm okay with it.
C. Chore you hate: Dusting, which is why I don't do it.
D. Dogs:  Are cute.

E. Essential start to your day: I'm kind of a routine person, so every part is essential, but I HAVE to brush my teeth.  And lately, I've looked forward to a green monster every day.  I like that Gracie says her prayers in the morning.  I definitely should start that because I say mine at night and sometimes that leads to falling asleep during them.
F. Favorite color: Silver!
G. Gold or silver: Silver, obviously...

P. Pet peeve:  Being late... sentence finishers...realizing I put my shirt on backwards (or something to that effect)
Q. Quote from a movie: May the wind always be at your back and the sun upon your face. And may the wings of destiny carry you aloft to dance with the stars. -Blow
R. Right or left handed: Right.
S. Siblings: A half-sister, Angela and a half brother, Joel
T. Time you wake up: MWF- 9, TTH-9:30
U. Underwear: Are necessary.
V. Vegetables you dislike: I don't like beets.  Yuck!
W. What makes you run late: Nothing! Or my mom...or Kellen.

Y. Yummy food you make: Oreo Cookies
Z. Zoo- I love zoos!!!!

Frosted Cake Batter Rice Crispies
adapted slightly from Jessica

original recipe on the back of the cereal box!


3 tablespoons butter
1 10-ounce bag of mini marshmallows (I used marshmallow fluff because I was out of marshmallows... but this household always has marshmallow fluff.  It's an obsession around here.)
1/4 cup white cake mix (I didn't have any, so I made my own!  See below...)
6 cups rice krispies cereal
1 1.75-ounce container of sprinkles
1/2 cup powdered sugar
4 tbsp milk
1 tbsp cake mix
2 tbsp marshmallow fluff

Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat and add marshmallows. Stir until they begin to melt, adding in cake mix one spoonful at a time so its combined. Stir in cereal so it is completely coated with marshmallow mixture. Sprinkle in half of the sprinkles and mix. Press into cupcake pan.

To make frosting:  Mix all ingredients together.  Frost cooled treats!
