Funfetti Krispie Cupcakes

    Jax loves to bring treats to share with his friends at daycare.  We brought spring nests for everyone the first week of spring.  He likes to share cookies when we make cookies too.  He is so proud when we talk about the snack that he brought to share with everyone.  So I knew he would be happy to bring treats for his birthday.
    My original inclination was to do cupcakes.  I love frosting (I know I tell you that all of the time!)  so the thought of big piles of frosting was very appealing to me.  But then I thought of his daycare ladies.  Trying to feed a bunch of toddlers cupcakes covered in frosting sounded like a mess.  So, I made these instead!

    The krispie treats would be easy for the kids to eat and the royal frosting wouldn't run the risk of being smeared on everything.   With sprinkles mixed in, there were fun pops of color.  Jax taste tested one and loved it.  He kept asking for more "treat."

Funfetti Krispie Cupcakes


2 T butter 
1 10 oz package of marshmallows
5 1/2 cups rice krispies
1/2 cup sprinkles

optional: royal frosting and additional sprinkles

  1. Liberally grease a cupcake pan
  2. In a large saucepan, melt together the butter and marshmallows until completely melted and smooth.
  3. Mix in rice krispies and sprinkles
  4. Push into cupcake pan to desired thickness.  (I didn't make mine too thick so the small children could eat them easier)
  5. Frost with royal frosting and sprinkles if desired
