With extra marshmallows for more ooey-gooey goodness, a heaping mound of cookie butter, and crunchy, cinnamony bites of Biscoff cookies, there is no way you won’t adore these Cookie Butter Rice Krispie Treats. Just as quick & easy as the original version!
When I made these Peanut Butter Scotcheroos a few weeks ago, I ended up with odd amounts of Rice Krispies cereal and mini marshmallows leftover. That recipe for Peanut Butter Scotcheroos triggered several other versions of Rice Krispie Treats in order to use up the ingredients! We’ll start with these Cookie Butter Rice Krispie Treats.
I also just felt really inspired though. I kept thinking of creative renditions of a Rice Krispies Treat (hereafter ‘RKT’!) that I wanted to try, and they were turning out so beautifully. But in an effort to use up leftover ingredients, I actually found myself going to the store to buy more for my next RKT idea. It was a vicious and delicious cycle!
In the next week or two, you’ll see another RKT recipe, of course. That’s how things work around here – recipes in twos or threes.
RKTs are sooooo quick and easy treat to throw together (duh), but if you want to elevate a basic RKT, there’s a million great ways to do it, while still maintaining simplicity.
You’re starting with a blank canvas, in a way. They’re an awesome blank canvas, and quite a tasty and sweet base to build upon, but still – we’re just talking about a relatively bland cereal, marshmallows, and a little butter. It begs to be embellished. They really lend themselves well to ‘doctoring up’, and the ideas kept coming.
When I got the idea for these Cookie Butter Rice Krispie Treats, it was the day I was making these Biscoff Cheesecake Bars, the Biscoff Crust, and the Peanut Butter Scotcheroos…. so my idea for Cookie Butter Rice Krispie Treats wasn’t much of a stretch. It was pretty much right in front of me. 🙂
For this Cookie Butter Rice Krispie Treats recipe, I used 1 1/2 bags of mini marshmallows, so about 15 oz. I know that’s an odd amount, but it makes them extra gooey and marshmallowy. It’s totally, totally worth ending up with half a bag of mini marshmallows. And then you have an excuse to make more RKTs – yay! #winning
When you sink your teeth into one of these Cookie Butter Rice Krispie Treats, the ooey-gooey factor is off the charts. The extra marshmallow goodness is divine. These are so sweet, sticky, and gooey!
The only additional ingredients required for these RKTs are cookie butter and Biscoff cookies. That makes the grand total still only 5 ingredients. And they are no more work or time than a classic RKT. You can have these made and ready to eat in about 20 minutes total. Whoop!
With extra marshmallows, a little extra butter, a heaping mound of melted cookie butter, and crunchy, cinnamony, crushed Biscoff cookies, there is no way you won’t adore these. Regular RKTs are so addictive as it is, but these Cookie Butter Rice Krispie Treats are even more a test of will-power!
