In honor of my son’s birthday, I wanted to share the recipe for these delectable rice crispy treats that I made this past weekend. The addition of dry cake mix adds a touch of flavor to the classic rice crispy treats, and the sprinkles add a touch of FUN that will draw the kids (and adults) in…I promise.

I couldn’t get a few of my kids to STOP eating them. I admit I ate more than one myself.
