Cake Batter Rice Krispie Treats

Cake batter AND rice krispie treats?!  Two of my favorite things combined plus rainbow sprinkles, 
you just can't go wrong! It's like rice krispie treats on steroids...

Stuff You'll Need:
3 tbsp. butter
1 10 oz. bag of mini marshmallows
1/4 cup yellow cake mix
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
1 1.75 oz. container of sprinkles

Let's Play!
In a large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until they begin to melt. Stir in cake mix one spoonful at a time until thoroughly combined. Pour in cereal and fold until completely covered in marshmallow mixture. Fold in half of the sprinkles. Press into a baking dish (I used a 9x13 pan) and cover the top with the remaining sprinkles. Let harden for at least 30 minutes before cutting.
