Total time: 
Serves: 48 bites
  • 1 (15.25 ounce) box of Pillsbury Stars & Stripes Funfetti® Cake Mix + the ingredients required to bake the cake (3 eggs, ½ cup oil, 1 cup water)
  • 1 ¼ cups crisp rice cereal
  • ½ cup Extra red, white, and blue sprinkles (optional), plus more for decorating
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 (10 ounce) package of mini marshmallows
  • 1 (8 ounce) package Crispy S’mores M & M’s (available only at Target)
  • 18 ounces chocolate, Chopped
  1. Prepare the cake according to package instructions for a 13 X 9 pan. Let the cake cool after it bakes. Lay out a baking sheet covered with parchment paper or wax paper.
  2. In a large bowl, crumble the cooked cake until there are no large bits of cake. Stir in the crisp rice cereal and as much as ½ cup of additional red, white, and blue sprinkles.
  3. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan. Stir in the marshmallows over medium low heat until they are melted and smooth. Scrape the melted marshmallows into the bowl with the crumbled cake.
  4. Use a rubber spatula to stir and turn all the ingredients until they are combined.
  5. Roll the mixture into balls about a tablespoon at a time. Space them out on your prepared baking sheet. Insert a Crispy S’mores M & M into the center of the cake bites and then reshape into balls. Refrigerate for at least an hour.
  6. Melt the chocolate over medium low heat in a medium sauce pan. Us a fork to dip each ball in the chocolate to coat it on all sides. Place the chocolate covered cake bite back on the prepared baking sheet and top each with more Crispy S’mores M & M’s and/or sprinkles before the chocolate sets up.
  7. Store in a cool dry place or refrigerate.
