Cake Batter Rice Krispies And Turning “Almost 30”

Today marks the big 2-9 for me and in just one year I will hit the dreaded 30 year milestone.  I will be celebrating with family and friends and of course, some cake batter inspired treats.  These Cake Batter Rice Krispie Treats are the perfect treat for any birthday.  They are easy, fun, super festive, and tasty too.
