cake mix without the cake

Adding cake mix to your ice cream? Smart. Adding cake mix to your rice krispie treats? Also smart. I have made two batches to far: one for our NH vacation and the other yesterday with the leftover s'more marshmallows from said vacation. BAM!
Rice Krispie Treats
(from the box! but the cake batter idea from the internet)
3 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 package regular marshmallows (or 4 cups mini marshmallows...but I like to save them for the hot chocolate!)
6 cups Rice Krispies
1/4 to 1/3 cup cake mix (depending on your how strong you want it)
Sprinkles! (so not jimmies)
1. Melt your butter and then through in your marshmallows. Once it's all melty, stir in cake mix and sprinkles.
2. Mix in rice krispies and transfer to a lightly greased pan. Let cool. Add more sprinkles if desired.

There is a nice vanilla flavor to these treats. Not as good as the cake batter ice cream but still more flavorful than regular rice krispie treats. Besides, what else am I going to do with that half used open box of cake mix?
