- One box of chocolate cake mix
- 1 cup of small marsh mellows
- 2 cups of chocolate Rice Crispies
about one to 2 cups of butter softened
Add your cake mix and rice crispies; add the butter,add one cup first and mix with spoon, until crumbly, and if holds it together pretty well; such as you can roll a ball then don't add the second cup, sometimes it just depends on the type of cake mix you are using, if its too crumbly then begin a bit the the second cup of softened butter and add until you can form a round ball and it all holds together is the best way I can explain this...
Now add your marsh mellows and mix again by spoon until it's all well mixed up; now to form the round balls again, they don't have to be perfectly rounded balls kind of throw together making sure the marsh mellows stay in the mix. These balls are about the size of an ice cream scoop or just a tiny bit smaller. Add the balls to a well greased cookie sheet and bake 12-14 minutes at 350; actually check on them about 10 minutes and see how they are looking they should come out like the pictures above, looking like a pile of mud with a little bit of snow in them! You want the marsh mellows to melt! so that it looks like mud and snow mixed together. You will get 24 cookies because they are so large
Let them cool good and be careful about removing them, take a spatula all the way around the outside edge to loosen as to keep them from falling apart.
The uglier they are the better! I have found they make a great gift idea for your neighbors, friends, family, they look ugly but taste good.
