Cookies ‘n Cream Rice Krispie Treats

Asiya posted this Cookies and Cream Rice Krispies recipe a while back, and I had filed it away in my mental “must-make” file. I first made the recipe, adapting it to use regular marshmallows, several months ago to mind-blowing results. Since then, I’ve made it a number of times, each time better than the last. This is a wonderful recipe to whip up in a jiffy, and it’s also one that kids enjoy helping out with 🙂

Cookies ‘n Cream Rice Krispie Treats

Yield: 1 Large Tray

Ingredients:

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 20 chocolate sandwich cookies (12 coarsely chopped for filling, 8 coarsely chopped or ground for topping)
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • 1 (200-250 gram) package marshmallows
  • ½ to 1 cup (according to preference) white chocolate chips

Directions:

Depending on how thick or thin you prefer your rice krispie treats, set aside a greased 9”x13” or 8”x11” baking dish.

In a large bowl, combine cookies for filling and cereal.

In a large nonstick vessel, melt the butter over medium low heat. Add marshmallows and melt completely. Slowly add the melted marshmallows to the cereal and mix completely. Transfer to greased baking dish and spread out the mixture evenly. Lightly press down.

In a double broiler, melt the white chocolate chips. Spread melted chocolate over the rice krispies evenly. Lightly press the remaining chocolate sandwich cookies over the melted chocolate. Refrigerate for a few minutes, to harden the chocolate.

Cut into squares and serve.

Can be kept at room temperature.

  1. As-Salaamu Alaykum Sister,
    These look sooo good and i love the colour contrast! Baarak Allahu Feeki. Halal marshmallows aren’t that readily available here when i do buy them it’s usually online. When i get some more i will give this recipe a try because nothing appeals more to the kid in me like white chocolate does 🙂 do you remember the milky bar kid adverts?!

  2. I can save you time and sanity by advising you to use the marshmallow cream instead of melting the marshmallows and no worries about gelatin at all!!!! I always make it that way. I like the addition of cookies there 🙂

    • We’re opposites when it comes to that, because I have issues with my treats falling apart when I use creme! I have to find the right balance of cream to cereal.
      By the way, Zunoon loves making these with me! He stands on a stool at the counter and spreads the white chocolate 🙂
      Thank you for awesome recipe! I’ve made this like 20 times already!
