Cake Spy by Jessie Oleson

It’s already been established that Rice Krispies are not the only cereal treat on the sweet circuit. But for the most sacchariferous and certainly the prettiest alternative, why not try a rainbow-hued cereal? You can then create some double rainbow magic by slicing your tutti-frutti-toned tidbits and stuffing them with frosting and sprinkles. If you are what you eat, than eaters of these treats are colorful, rich, and absolutely fabulous.

CakeSpy Presents Sweet Treats for a Sugar-Filled Life by Jessie Oleson

Published by Running Press

What could be sweeter than a cupcake-stuffed cupcake? Perhaps a piece of birthday cake French toast? Or a Pop-Tarts ice cream sandwich? Maybe a piece of Magic Cookie Bar Pie? Oh the choices, how sweet they are. In CakeSpy Presents Recipes for a Sugar-Filled Life, readers find 60 of "Head Spy" Jessie Oleson's most popular, totally sweet treats, along with stunning photography so you can really appreciate the awesomeness of her desserts. And of course it wouldn't be a CakeSpy book without unicorns, robots, or Cuppie the Cupcake. Jessie's iconic and whimsical illustrations are featured throughout the book. CakeSpy's mission is to seek sweetness (literally) in everyday life, and this little book does just that.

  • Step 1

    Generously grease a 9-by-13-inch pan.

  • Step 2

    In a large saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Add the marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat. Add the cereal. Stir with a wooden spoon until well coated.

  • Step 3

    Spoon this sticky mixture into the prepared pan, pressing down with either clean, slightly wet fingers or the back of the spoon to make sure it is evenly and firmly packed into the pan. Set aside.

  • Step 4

    Let the treats cool completely, then cut into squares of any size you’d like.

  • Step 5

    Using a very sharp knife, cut the squares in half horizontally (like a bagel). Apply a liberal dollop of frosting to the bottom half, then top with the other half to form a sandwich. Apply rainbow sprinkles to the exposed frosting on the edges to really trick out your treats.
