Cheesecake Rice Krispy Treats

I adore Rice Krispy Treats… ooey gooey marshmallow goodness… does it get any better?!

Well, I must say it does! My cute friends over at Sugar n’ Spice Gals (Becky has been my best friend since 2nd grade) made some Banana Rice Krispy treats using a pudding mix. Do you see where I am going with this? I love finding uses for pudding mixes :) Anyway, I decided to try a cheesecake flavor and  sprinkle some vanilla wafers on top and the end result was FANTASTIC!

I used some cheesecake flavoring I bought at a local kitchen specialty store to add to the cheesecake flavor, but it is delicious without it, you may just not pick up on as strong of a cheesecake flavor as you would with it.

      I found the Cheesecake Flavoring at a kitchen specialty store. I am sure amazon sells some too.
