Note: The boys are going away camping this weekend so I am making them treats. Nothing says camping like s'mores and rice krispie treats.
Cake Batter Rice Krispie Treats
3 Tbsp. butter
1 (10 oz) bag marshmallows
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 cup yellow cake mix
6 cups rice krispies cereal
assorted sprinkles (optional)
Melt butter in a
large saucepan over low heat and add marshmallows. Stir until the begin
to melt and mix in vanilla. Add in cake mix one spoonful at a time and
stir until combined. Stir in cereal so it is completely coated with
marshmallow mixture. Sprinkle in half of the sprinkles and mix. Press
into a baking dish sprayed with non-stick spray (I like an 8x8 or 9x9 to
make them thicker) and top with remaining sprinkles. Let sit for about
30 minutes before cutting.
