It had been years since I had M&M’s Crispy candies. By a happy mistake while on vacation, we grabbed a bag to enjoy. I love finding old treats like this to enjoy — total nostalgia.

I’ve always loved surprise inside cakes, so this seemed like a natural combo. Since you could switch up colors, it’s also a great addition to a party food table.

This pinata cake is a fun surprise for a weeknight dinner or a party with friends. Everyone loves the bright colors of M&M’s plus the surprise inside.

Prep Time 20 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 8

Ingredients
  

  • 6 cups crispy rice cereal
  • 5 cups mini marshmallows
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 bag of M&M’s® Crispy
  • 3 x ⅛ cup candy melts in three colors of your choosing
  • 3 x teaspoons of vegetable oil

Instructions
 

  • Mix crispy rice cereal with melted marshmallows, vanilla and butter until completely coated.
  • Use damp hands to press the mixture into the pan, it’s much easier as you’re not having to deal with marshmallow sticking to you. You’ll want to use an 8″ spring form pan. You’ll have four layers total.
  • Between each layer, you’ll use your melted candy melts. Melt an ⅛ cup of candy melts on high in two, ten-second increments. Add in about a teaspoon of vegetable oil to thin. Spread over layer and let set.
  • To create the inside cavity, you’ll use a large, circular cookie cutter to cut through the center of the two middle layers. Then, fill the space with M&M’s Crispy.
