    Stop it already with the cake batter stuff. You’re killin’ me, I tell ya. Killin’ me. After I made your cake batter popcorn, then posted the recipe on my blog, my married daughter dropped by for a visit. “So Mom,” she said, “Where’s that popcorn that you talked about on your blog? I want some.” Gulp. My husband started snickering. “Dad! Did you eat it all?” she asked incredulously. Then the hubs really starts laughing and pointing, “No! Your mom ate it!” You should have seen the looks she gave me–first disbelief, thinking that her dad was lying, then shock when she realized that he wasn’t kidding. All I could manage was a weak smile and a guilty, “Um, sorry. It was really good.” So now you give me cake batter rice krispy treats and no good reason not to make them pretty much every day. (Oh dear, I’ve talked too much…again. My fingers just won’t shut up. But I just wanted you to know how much I really like your cake batter recipes.)

      …laughing… Terri, you are so funny! I know that guilty look . . . my kids have seen it on my face before too! Cake batter is definitely an awesome flavor, isn’t it? I should try cake batter ice cream next. Even if it is the dead of winter! Well, my advice: make these and eat them all before anyone else comes home. OR make two batches . . . one for you and one for everyone else when they come home. LOL!

        Yes, do the cake batter ice cream. It’s wonderful. I have a recipe for it and it is super easy to make and just as enticingly addictive as all of the other cake batter creations.
