Michael’s Multi-layer Rice Crispy Treat Cake

December 4, 2011

I live in Georgia. My sister and husband moved to Connecticut. That’s weird because we lived in the same apartment building for three years. I always made him ridiculous cakes for his birthday. But now I’m 900 miles away, what’s a sister-in-law to do?!

Easy. Make a multi-layer rice crispy cake. He turned 30, so it needed to be big and special. I felt like such a creep going into the supermarket to only buy tons of butter, marshmallows and cereal. Too bad my coupons only discounted me $1.

Everyone knows how to make rice crispy treats. It’s as basic as boiling water. Melt 3 tablespoons of butter, a bag of marshmallows and 6 cups of rice crispy treats.

Want to get funky? Add food coloring. Hello blue!

Want to get chocolaty? Mike loves chocolate. Use Cocoa Crispies instead. I also added some chocolate chips to the melted marshmallow mix.

When building layers the treats need to be firm, so it might be a good idea to let them sit in the fridge for a bit. Unfortunately I didn’t have enough pans, so I had to chill in intervals.

Use melted chocolate chips or marshmallows as glue and stack the layers. Then you have a two-foot tower ready for mailing.

Oh yea and line the layers with some sort of chocolate KIX cereal. Or write out his age on the top. Whatever tickles your pickle. Then mail. Mike said it withstood the trip up. Wonderful!!!

Happy 30th Birthday Michael!
