  1. Spray an 11×7-inch baking pan with nonstick spray. Set aside.

  2. In a large saucepan over low heat, melt the butter. Add the marshmallows and stir constantly.

  3. Once the marshmallows are completely melted, stir in the dry cake mix. Remove the pan from heat.

  4. Stir in the cereal until it is completely coated with the marshmallow mixture. Mix in half of the sprinkles.

  5. Press into the prepared baking pan using a spatula sprayed with nonstick spray, and top with the remaining sprinkles.
