Minecraft Birthday Cake Squares with Brownies and Rice Krispies Treats

This is a guest post by my son who created Minecraft brownie squares and green Rice Krispies squares with frosting for a birthday celebration. It was fun for family members to grab squares from the tray for a fun birthday treat.  Who doesn't love bitesize treats?!

Let's start with the recipe for brownies.

Recipe: Brownies for Minecraft Squares 
If you are creating a Minecraft cake that is made of different squares such as brownie squares, rice krispies squares, and more, this brownie recipe is great because they are a great consistency, easy to cut into squares (when cool), and taste delicious!

  • ½ cup butter 
  • 1 cup white sugar 
  • 2 large eggs eggs 
  • 1⅓ teaspoon vanilla extract 
  • ⅓ cup unsweetened cocoa powder 
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour 
  • ¼ teaspoon salt 
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 

2. Grease and 8"x8" glass pan.

3.  Melt the butter in a saucepan. 

4. Beat the eggs and set aside.

5. Mix the cocoa, salt, and baking powder. Set aside.

5. Remove the butter from heat, and stir in eggs, sugar, and vanilla. 

6. Add the mixture of cocoa, salt, and baking powder.  Mix well. 

7. Spread the batter into the greased 8"x8" pan.  

8. Bake for approximately 25 minutes.

9. Cool for approximately 1 to 2 hours before cutting into squares for the Minecraft birthday cake creation.  

Now let's move on to the recipe for the Rice Krispies squares. We made a half batch since we didn't want too many leftovers. 

Recipe: Minecraft Rice Krispy Squares

  • 1 1/2  tablespoons butter 
  • 1/2 package (5 ounces) Marshmallows 
  • 3 cups Kellogg's® Rice Krispies® cereal
  • 12 drops of green food coloring
1. Melt butter over low heat over low heat. 

2. Stir marshmallows in until completely melted. Remove from heat. 

3. Stir in the Kellogg's® Rice Krispies® cereal until well coated. 

4. Using wax paper, press the mixture into an 8"x8" pan coated with cooking spray. 

This recipe is best if served immediately or on the same day.  If you want to save them for another day, be sure to wrap them well in plastic wrap and/or store them in a small air tight container.
