Hi, all! I’m writing this post from lovely Duck, North Carolina. We are on vacation this week. It’s beautiful outside right now and we are just about to head out to the beach.  I’m hoping that helps my aching head.  Apparently it was not wise to consume massive amount of white wine last night….who know?

Now onto the Krispie treats. I first saw these little delicious treats on Pinterest. Are you on there yet? You should be. I sure do enough free advertisement for them Smile Anyway, I knew I had to make them because if there is one thing I love it’s cake batter and rice Krispie treats.  Luckily they are easy to make and extremely delicious. A hip widening terror. I gave away most of my treats to my neighbor. That way I didn’t eat them all because I would have. Trust me.

Hi Pattie,

I have always used the dry yellow cake mix but I don't see why other flavors wouldn't work. I'm sure strawberry, chocolate or even lemon would taste great. If you give it a try let me know how it turns out :)
