Easter Rice Krispies Treat Cake

I have a confession to make — I have never baked a cake. I have made all kinds of treats, and plenty of cupcakes, but I have never baked a cake. Technically, I still haven’t baked a cake, but I am super proud of my faux cake. And if you ask me this Easter Rice Krispies® Treat Cake is just as pretty and yummy as the real thing.

Rice Krispies® sponsored this post and asked me to share an Easter-themed treat hack – otherwise known as a creative twist on everyone’s favorite easy dessert, Rice Krispies® Treats. With just three ingredients and no baking, Rice Krispies® Treats are the dessert anyone can make.

I love Rice Krispies® Treats as much as the next person, but I have moved on from plain Jane Rice Krispies® Treats and quite enjoy coming up with new ways to serve them. Previous Rice Krispies® Treats have included Easter Rice Krispies® Treats NestsEaster Egg Rice Krispies® Treats, Chocolate Candy Cane Rice Krispies® Treats and more. But without a doubt, the Rice Krispies® Treat Cake is my new favorite.

If you are intimidated by making a cake, but you can make Rice Krispies® Treats then this is the cake hack for you. It’s a fancy way to serve Rice Krispies® Treats and perfect for an Easter party or spring celebration.

Easter Rice Krispies Treat Cake

It takes a double batch of Rice Krispies® Treats to fill at 10-inch bundt pan, but a double batch is too big for my sauce pan. So rather than doubling the recipe, I made the recipe twice. I mixed up the first batch, poured it into the bundt pan and made the second batch in the same sticky pan. 


  • 12 cups of Rice Krispies®
  • 2 (10 oz) bags of marshmallows
  • 6 tablespoons of butter
  • 2 cups of M&Ms
  • Candy melts


Melt three tablespoons of butter in a large sauce pan. Add one (10 oz) bag of marshmallows stirring occasionally until completely melted.

Remove pan from stovetop and stir in six cups of Rice Krispies®. When well mixed, carefully fold in 1 cup of M&Ms. Work quickly and gently so as not to melt and crush the M&Ms.

Rice Krispies Treat Cake Recipe
Pour mixture into a well-greased bundt pan. Using greased fingers or waxed paper, press mixture down into the bundt pan. (Again, not so hard as to crush the M&Ms.)

Repeat the steps above to make a second batch of Rice Krispies® Treats. Pour the second batch on top of the first pressing it into the bundt pan.

Once Rice Krispies® Treats have completely cooled, slide a knife down the edges of the bundt pan to loosen the cake. Then invert the pan and slide out the Rice Krispies® Treat Cake.  

M&Ms Rice Krispies Treat Cake
Melt the candy melts according to package directions. Drizzle melted candy on top of the Rice Krispies® Treat Cake. Allow candy to harden completely, at least 30 minutes before serving.

Spring Rice Krispies Treat Cake
This Rice Krispies® Treat Cake has so much wow factor that my daughter has decided she would rather have a Rice Krispies® Treat Cake for her class party instead of cupcakes. Which got me to thinking, Rice Krispies® Treat Cakes in various colors for every holiday! Oh yeah, that is happening.
