Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Rice Krispie Treats

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Rice Krispie Treats

                Just like the Caramel Mocha Brookies in the last post, these Nutella Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Rice Krispie Treats came to be largely due to what was on sale at CVS. Such is the life of a broke college student with no car and no grocery store in reasonable walking distance. This time, boxes of Rice Krispies were 3 for $5. Especially considering the ridiculous prices that CVS typically charges for food, this sounded like quite the steal to me. So, I got a box of Rice Krispies and another of Cocoa Krispies. The other major factor in the creation of these tasty treats was my ever-present desire to find more socially acceptable ways to eat cookie dough. Alas, my gluttony and the CVS gods (that's what I'll assume they call the people who decide the sales at CVS, and therefore, my impulse buying decisions) led me to yet another delicious recipe. As always, I am left with no shame and no regrets.  


For cookie dough:
3 tbsp butter, softened
1 tbsp nutella
1 tbsp peanut butter
1 tbsp water
½ tsp vanilla
½ cup plus 2 tbsp flour
¼ cup packed brown sugar
2 tbsp granulated sugar
Pinch of salt
½ cup chocolate chips

Other ingredients:
2 cups mini marshmallows
2 cups Rice Krispies
1 cup Cocoa Krispies

Step one:
Mix all cookie dough ingredients in the order listed above.

Step 2:
Melt  the cookie dough in a saucepan over medium heat until chocolate chips are melted and well combined with other ingredients.

Step 3:
Pour the marshmallows into the saucepan and stir mixture until marshmallows are well mixed in with other ingredients. Remove saucepan from heat.

Step 4:
Pour mixture over a bowl of the mixed Rice Krispies and Cocoa Krispies and mix well.

Step 5:
Spread into a coated 8 or 9 inch square pan.

Step 6:
Let them cool for about half an hour.

Have lots of others on hand to share these with you, and when in doubt, bake!
