We moved south and in turn got hit with an ice storm that closed down the entire city. Schools are still closed TODAY! An entire week later!
So, naturally in our cabin fevered apartment, we decided sweets were the only way to cope. We made these delicious cake batter blondies and my son and husband couldn't get enough! It was the perfect pick me up for our cold weather blues. In case mother nature decides to play another cruel joke on all of us and dumps more ice and snow, here is the recipe so you can be prepared!
CAKE BATTER BLONDIES
- 1 box yellow cake mix
- 1/4 cup vegetable or canola oil
- 1 large egg
- 1/3 -1/2 cup milk (less is better)
- 1/2 cup sprinkles
- 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
Icing Ingredients (they don't need icing but we wanted the extra frill ... and we had a lot of time on our hands!):
- 1/2 stick salted butter (melted)
- 1 cup powered sugar
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- milk (to help smooth if needed)
deliciously dipped rice krispy pops.
In other non-recipe news today I have not one, not two, but THREE very exciting birthdays to share! One of my very nearest and dearest friends, since I have been a tiny tiny tot (talking kindergarten here folks) brought two precious baby boys into the world! Everyone meet Beckett and Camden, the most adorable twin boys you ever did see!
And most certainly you all know about MaKenzie, my favorite cousin and sister from another mother. She brought to the world her fourth girl, Salem Christian.
My heart is so so full. Welcome to the world precious littles. You are so loved!
