Not Your Grandma's Rice Krispie Bars

READY IN: 7mins
Recipe by srosfeld

These may look like my grandma's rice krispie bars however, they have a twist...Cake Batter Rice Krispie Bars! I used yellow cake mix but I'm assuming these would be even better with Funfetti cake mix! I also used I Can't Believe It's Not Butter instead of butter. Either works! *Note* These do not contain cake batter or eggs (for people who just don't understand!)

This is an interesting & delightful take on this kind of bars, & the colorful sprinkles (for me they're 'hundreds & thousands') made them a great kids' treat, which it was, 'cause I used plastic wrap to contain 2 each for Hallowe'en give aways, along with some other cookies I'd made!
