cake batter rice krispie treats... and a guest blogpost

 happy Friday everyone... i am absolutely thrilled that it's the weekend already... the week countdown until my hubby comes home has begun... the little guys are so excited for his return... i think they are even more excited for the following week when i go to France for 12 days leaving the three of them to do lots of fun boy stuff... as my oldest Jack keeps saying "we are going to rock the house out mom!"... oh lord, i can only imagine... my hubs has never spent more than 1 day/night by himself with both of the boys... i've already made a very detailed (color coated) schedule so the hubs has a bit of a heads-up... sometimes it's like i have 3 kids (just kidding)...

so... i saw this recipe on pinterest the other day, and being that it only took about 5 minutes to make and consisted of about 5 ingredients, i figured i would give it a go... the only thing was that i had to buy a box of yellow cake mix.. i cannot remember the last time i bought cake mix... but since the reviews of these treats were raving... i got myself to the store and bought myself a box of duncan hines yellow butter cake mix...
and as for these treats... the reviews were spot on... they were sooooo good...what a fun way to amp up rice krispie treats!
cake batter rice krispie treats:

3 Tbsp. butter
1 (10 oz.) bag of mini-marshmallows
1/3 cup yellow cake mix (the dry cake mix, not prepared into a batter!)
6 cups crispy rice cereal
a few dashes of cinnamon

1. melt and brown butter in a large saucepan over low heat and add marshmallows, and stir until they begin to melt, and dash in a bit of cinnamon
2. begin adding in the cake mix one spoonful at a time so its combined
3. stir in the cereal, and mix it so it is completely coated with marshmallow mixture
4. press into a baking dish and top with sprinkles... then let  them sit for about 30 minutes before cutting

and i have a great announcement... starting today, my sister and i will be collaborating on her amazing blog "Jeans and Tees and Travel and Cakes"... so check me out every Friday where i will be sharing more amazing, fun and delicious goodies

until next time... happy baking everyone :)
