C is for Cookies and Cream Rice Krispies

c is for cookie

Hi! I’m Leigh Anne from Your Homebased Mom and I am so excited about this fun ABC – Create With Me Series that Stephanie is hosting.

I chose the letter C . The first thing that came to mind was the song “C is for cookie, that’s good enough for me,” that Cookie Monster loves to sing. So I decided that if it was good enough for the Cookie Monster, it was good enough for me. Of course chocolate also starts with C so I decided to combine cookie, chocolate and throw in cream for good measure and because it starts with C and make Chocolate Cookies and Cream Rice Krispie Treats!

I love rice krispie treats but I make mine a little different than the recipe on the box. I like my rice krispie treats nice and gooey so I throw in extra butter and marshmallows. This time I also added in some melted white chocolate and chocolate sandwich cookies too!

I then put them into the 9 x 13 pan and added more white chocolate and chocolate sandwich cookie goodness on top.

I first served these at a dessert potluck and they were one of the first things to disappear from the table! It’s a fun way to dress up a family favorite.
