Cookie Dough Crispy Treats

Cookie Dough Crispy Treats


Hi everybody :)

Sorry about the lateness, but I'm working on some sourdough projects I'll be posting later.

Now to the recipe at hand, Cookie Dough Crispy Treats, who doesn't LOOVVVVE cookie dough??? This recipe is guarantee to make you a cookie dough fan, if you're not one already.  And YES, it's SAFE to eat, because it doesn't contain eggs. I'm sharing the love today, people, let's get it started... 
Cookie Dough Crispy Treats adapted The Cookie Dough Lover's Cookbook

Makes 24 Treats

FOR COOKIE DOUGH:
1/3 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips

FOR THE CRISPY TREATS:

2 tablespoons unsalted butter
12 ounces marshmallows (about 44 regular or 7 cup mini marshmallows)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
7 cups crisp rice cereal

Grease a 13-by-9-inch baking pan with butter or cooking spray, set aside.

FOR THE COOKIE DOUGH:

In a mixing bowl, beat together butter and sugars with on electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Add vanilla and milk. Mix in flour and salt and beat on low speed (or by hand) until incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips.


FOR THE CRISPY TREATS MIX:
Melt butter and marshmallows together in a large saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, until completely melted. Remove from heat, add vanilla. 

Fold in cereal,  stirring until completely coated.
Press half of the cereal mixture into prepared pan.  

 Spread with cookie dough and then top with remaining cereal,
carefully pressing into an even layer with generously buttered hands
Cut into squares. Treats can be stored in refrigerator, use within 3 days
What I Did and/or Think:
The only change I did was drizzled white chocolate over the bars. 




Here's a TIP: I rolled the cookie dough layer out as in the picture below on a lightly floured and powdered sugar surface (another tip for rolled cookie; mix powdered sugar and flour or cocoa for chocolate cookies to roll them out with) then topped and pressed.
The Taste: DELICIOUS of course! as if otherwise :) Definitely a REPEAT!





















ENJOY! Come again...
