Cake Batter Rice Krispie Treats

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.
