There seems to be a mild obsession with cake batter lately. I am not totally buying into the craze, as I am not a cake lover, BUT these rice krispie treats with cake batter are pretty good. You can definitely taste the cake batter, and don't they look pretty with all those sprinkles? Kids love sprinkles. You can use any kind of sprinkles you like, but I think the more colorful, the better.
