Birthday Cake Krispie Treats

Nope.  It's not Renee's Kitchen Adventures birthday...but it's my good friend Michele's blog, Flavor Mosiac, 1st blogiversary and to celebrate, I've made this yummy birthday cake flavored rice crispie treat. 

 I met Michele through the Allrecipes Allstar program and last week she was kind enough to do a guest post for me when I was busy with life!  I am truly honored to celebrate this milestone with her.

These Birthday Cake Krispie Treats could not be any easier to make!  No preheating of the oven required for this fun cake flavored treat dotted with sprinkles and topped with a touch of white chocolate. They are the perfect birthday treat for the hot days of July!  Or really, anytime of the year!

Who knew celebrating could be so easy and yummy?!!  You will want to whip up a batch of these treats even if it's not your birthday! I like to make these in an 8"x8" pan because I like them thick, but if you like your krispie treats less tall, you could make them in a 9"x13" pan instead!

  12. I can't figure out how I can follow a recipe to the letter yet still manage to mess it up. I made these today for a friends birthday and they turned out hard and dry. Not gooey or chewy at all. Perhaps I left it on the heat too long, or should've used a different method of measure for the cereal. So frustrating, they are super simple and adorable!

    1. Lora, I'm so sorry they didn't turn out for you. I had no issues with them being dry and hard. It could have been, as you said, the marshmallow mixture was left on the heat too long. I just had it on medium until they melted and no longer. :)
