Cake batter milkshakes

Saturday night one of my girlfriends and I made cake batter milkshakes...it is going to be our new girl's night ritual until we have tried every flavor of cake mix there is. We got the original recipe from here.
We decided to go for the devil's food cake mix since we both love anything chocolate. All you need is 4-5 cups of milk, a box of cake mix, 4-5 scoops of icecream (we used chocolate) and then the other ingredients called for on the back of the cake mix (minus the eggs.)
They were delicious, but the next time I make these (because I am making them again) I will make a few changes to this recipe. I do love cake batter, but wow...using a whole box of cake mix was way too much for my taste buds to handle. Plus it was so thick it took effort to suck the shake up through a straw.  My recommendation is that when you make these that you make the cake batter in a separate bowl and slowly add it to the ice cream and milk in a blender until you are satisfied with the taste. We just dumped all the ingredients in the blender and hoped for the best.
I don't even want to guess how many calories are in one of these shakes, but on a girl's night I've been told calories don't count right?! I would definitely recommend giving these shakes a whirl.
