Cake Batter Rice Krispie Treats & A GIVEAWAY!

Alright, we have a lot of things going on here this fine Monday morning. First, the Cookaholic Wife reached just over 500 posts this weekend! When I look at my binder of recipes to make, its completely baffling to me how I could have already managed to post anywhere near 500 recipes and meal plans. There's still so much to make!

So in celebration of 500 posts, I thought Cake Batter Rice Krispie Treats were in order. I made Cake Batter Pudding Cookies and Cake Batter Doughnuts for no particular reason and I celebrated my 27th birthday with Cake Batter Milkshakes, so Cake Batter Rice Krispie Treats were only fitting for today, yes?

Ingredients:
    • 4 tbsp. unsalted butter
    • 10.5 oz. bag mini marshmallows
    • 1/3 cup yellow cake mix
    • 1/2 of a 12.9 oz box of Rice Krispies Cereal
    • sprinkles

Directions:
1. Spray a 9x13 baking dish and a spatula with non-stick cooking spray.
2. Melt butter in a large pot over low heat. Add in the marshmallows and stir until partially melted.
3. Add the cake batter one spoonful at a time, stirring until its completely incorporated.
4. Then pour in the rice krispies cereal and toss until coated with the marshmallows. Pour in the sprinkles and mix until combined.
5. Spread the mixture into the prepared baking dish and use the spatula to press down the treats into an even layer. Top with more sprinkles and let sit 30 minutes before spraying a knife with non-stick cooking spray and cutting them into 30 squares.  

Don't these just remind you of being a kid? The cake batter flavor comes through really well and the sprinkles just make them so pretty. Aren't they perfect for my 500th post? I think so.

------------------------

So now we're getting to the good part. The Giveaway! I figured it was fitting that my first giveaway would correlate with 500 posts and a recipe that calls for sprinkles. It's just so very...me.

  4. I'm not always big on sweets, but I love a breakfast muffin - bacon and maple syrup in the batter, and a warm gooey chunk of cheese in the middle. Yum!

  7. I love pumpkin cupcakes. Of course those are seasonal. I have had a white chocolate cupcake with raspberry filling and buttercream frosting that is heavenly and I haven't been able to recreate either.

  13. I'm not sure I've met a cupcake that I didn't like! Except Carrot Cake...not my thang. My most recent favorite would have to be the white cupcakes I made for my Godson's 1st birthday party. So light and fluffy!
