Everything you love about chocolate chip cookies all mixed up in chewy rice krispie treats.
Have you had enough of pumpkin and apple desserts yet? If you have then let’s switch gears to chocolate chip. Chocolate chip is probably my all time fave. I have a weakness for chocolate chip cookies. Who can resist soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies with a tall glass of cold milk?
These Chocolate Chip Cookie Rice Krispie Treats are the best! Chunks of store bought chocolate chip cookies are mixed with rice krispies and melted marshmallows then topped with chocolate chips and a sprinkle of more chopped cookies. Sounds good doesn’t it? But where these yummy treats really bring out the flavor of a chocolate chip cookie is with my secret ingredient – vanilla instant pudding mix and just a splash of vanilla extract. Mixing the pudding mix and vanilla extract in with the melted marshmallow really elevates the flavor. You just have to try to see for yourself.
Whether you need a bake sale treat or just looking for a yummy no bake snack then you’ll have to give these a try along with a tall glass of milk!
