Hey everyone! It’s me, Sara, from Major Hoff Takes A Wife! Lately at our house, everyone has been so busy with school, sports, appointments, and everything in between. I have been busy getting posts and recipes ready for the holidays, so everything for our regular day to day stuff has been put on the back burner so to speak. Well at least food wise. Today though, my kiddos were begging for a homemade treat. I had initially said no, but then my sweet tooth got the best of me. Since I wanted something quick, inexpensive and EASY, I decided to combine a few ingredients together and see how it came out. I’m here to tell you– it worked! Cookie butter, a caramel like sauce, chocolate and rice krispies? Oh.my. These Cookie Butter Rice Krispie Treats will blow your mind!
Mmmmmm….who isn’t a fan of cookie butter?
The chocolate topping is the finishing touch. You will have people licking their fingers on this one. Promise. I can not however promise you that you will have leftovers. In fact, I should assure you that you most likely will not!
I hope you enjoyed today’s recipe. I know it’s not a knock your socks off recipe for the holidays, but some days everyone needs a little Easy Peasy! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Cookie Butter Rice Krispie Treats
Combining chocolate, caramel sauce, and cookie butter creates the ultimate Rice Krispie Treat!
- 3/4 cup light corn syrup
- 1/4 cup dark brown corn syrup
- 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
- 1 jar of your favorite Cookie butter around 14oz, 1/4 cup set aside for frosting
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 6 cups Rice Krispies Cereal
- 1. Measure out 6 cups of rice krispies cereal in a very large bowl, with lots of room for stirring. Set aside.
- 2. Set aside 1/4 cup of the cookie butter for the frosting.
- 3. In a medium saucepan, mix together both corn syrups, and the brown sugar. Place on medium heat, and stir until sugar dissolves and mixture begins to boil. Let boil about 1 minute.
- 4. Remove saucepan from heat and mix in the jar of cookie butter (except the 1/4 cup you reserved for later). The cookie butter will eventually melt into the caramel and you will get a smooth consistancy.
- 5. Poor cookie butter mixture into the bowl with the rice krispies and stir, stir, stir. Then stir some more. The mixture is sticky, but it will all mix in.
- 6. Spray a 9x13 pan with non stick spay, and press in the rice krispie mixture. Set aside.
- 7. In a microwave safe bowl, combine 1/4 cup cookie butter with 1 cup chocolate chips. Heat for 30 seconds, stir, and heat for 30 seconds more.
- 8. Stir the frosting well, and all the chips should melt and it should have a smooth consistancy. Spread onto the rice krispie bars.
- 9. Allow to cool about 1 hr.
