Cake Batter Rice Krispy Treats

I LOVE rice krispy treats.  When I used to teach I'd bring rice krispy treats to various events and everyone would go crazy.  I don't know why I don't make them more often since there's virtually no cooking involved.....maybe because I might eat them all??!!!  Luckily, I made these because we were going to some friends (who are also brothers) house-warming.  I made these and my husband made some m&m cookies.  Good thing, because they were the only dessert type foods there.....they are bachelors who don't really cook (their sisters pretty much made all of the food there!).  Everyone loved these and I figured with the cake batter and sprinkles it bumped them up a notch from regular rice krispy treats.  Plus, I've been wanting to make these for awhile and finally had a reason!
