Cake Batter Rice Krispie Treats

My children love rice krispie treats.  Who doesn't really?  And a little cake batter to top it off!  Holy cow...a little bit of heaven.  After having these I don't think I will ever make the tried and true recipe again.  The cake mix isn't an obivous flavor.  It gives these treats a new depth.  It takes them up a notch.  I really don't know how else to describe them.  They are lucky to last 24 hours in our house!

Cake Batter Rice Krispie Treats
recipe adapted from How Sweet It Is
3 Tbsp. butter
1 (10 oz.) bag of mini-marshmallows

1/4 cup yellow cake mix
6 cups crispy rice cereal

Let's Get Started:

 Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat and add marshmallows. Stir until they begin to melt, adding in cake mix one spoonful at a time so its combined. Stir in cereal so it is completely coated with marshmallow mixture. Press into a 9 X 13 baking dish and top with sprinkles. Let sit for about 30 minutes before cutting.
