Hey guys! Happy Tuesday! I know I know, these cookies sound wicked. And they kind of are. If you want to feel like a kid again, make these cookies. They are amazing. I love love love rice krispy treats. And these are my version of them as a cookie. Peanut Butter-y, marshmallow-y, rice krispy, chocolate-y goodness fill these cookies and the flavor combination doesn’t get much better than this! Give em a try and I dare you NOT to eat the whole batch!
Peanut Butter Rice Krispy Treat Cookies
recipe makes about 3 dozen
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cups brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 3.4 ounce pkg vanilla instant pudding mix
1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 cup mini semi sweet chocolate chips
2 cups Rice Krispy Cereal
In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside. Using a mixer, cream the butter, peanut butter and sugars. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until creamy. Add the vanilla pudding mix. Slowly add the flour mixture and mix just until combined. Add the marshmallows and chocolate chips. Stir in the cereal by hand. Scoop onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper (this is very important or you will never get the melted marshmallows off of your pan). Bake at 350 degrees for about 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden. Do NOT overbake. Best when warm.
