- cake mix and ingredients to make cake, frosting, cocoa crispies, butter, marshmallows, strawberry jam.
1. We mixed up a boxed cake mix according to the instructions on the box. We used a white cake mix, but you could use any flavor. We baked the cake directly in a bowl that is oven safe. Since the bowl was deeper than most cake pans, it took longer to cook than the directions on the box specified. I’d just recommend watching the cake. I think ours took an extra 10 minutes.
2. We let the cake cool (covered) overnight.
3. We made up a batch of rice crispy treats using cocoa crisps instead of rice crispy’s. We spread out the mixture in a 9×13 pan. When the mixture had cooled enough to shape into balls we used about half the mixture to make balls which became the “meatballs”.
