Krispie Treat Cupcakes. What better treat than to combine kid’s favorite sweets – krispie treats and cupcakes? This recipe, was actually a mistake turned awesome.
I started making the fruity krispie treats and when I went to put them into the pan, I remembered that it was in the oven. I had these treats which were going to start to settle soon so I had to get them into something before I had a lump of treats on my hands. I looked over and saw my muffin tins sitting there. I grabbed them and placed the treats inside of them. I just figured we’d have circle treats and then it hit me — turn them into cupcakes!!
So, my mistake has turned into something my kids thought was just so awesome – so I am sharing this with all of you!!!
