A recipe for Chocolate Chip Rice Krispies Treat Cookies. Ingredients for Chocolate Chip Rice Krispies Treat Cookies. Chocolate Chip Rice Krispies Treat Cookie recipe.

Happy Wednesday! I hope everyone had a very filling Thanksgiving. I am super pumped about Christmas / Holiday season. I am the person who gets the Christmas stuff out the day after Thanksgiving, and I get really excited when I see ornaments at Rite Aid. Then you know it’s all really happening. This year, we are going to really bring it with some yummy cookie recipes for you guys, as well as some gift giving make your own – do it yourself- situations. So get ready. First up are these Chocolate Chip Rice Krispies Treat Cookies. Like most of you, I am a really big fan of rice krispies treats. So making them into cookies with chocolate was kinda a no brainer. Super yum. The rice krispies make the cookies amazingly chewy, and the chunks of marshmallow and chocolate are awesome little flavor pockets as you eat your way through. Hope you all enjoy!

RECIPE UPDATE: Hi Guys! After reading many of your comments about the cookies turning into nut lace sitches, I went back and figured out the issue. I added way to much butter to flour when I typed this up. The new recipe should yield 3 dozen, non-nut lace cookies. :) They still spread, so beware of that, but not as much and they’re great! Sorry for the blooper and thanks for your patience, everyone! xx, Jenny

Chocolate Chip Rice Krispies Treat Cookies
Makes about 3 dozen

Ingredients:
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour plus 2 tablespoons
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups Rice Krispies cereal
1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
1 cup mini marshmallows

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
2. In a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer cream together butter and sugars. Scrape down sides of the bowl and mix in egg and vanilla.
3. In another bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt. Add flour mixture to the butter mixture and stir together until just combined.
4. Fold in the cereal, chocolate chips and marshmallows until fully incorporated. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour.
5. Drop 1 1/2 tablespoon sized dollops onto a baking sheet lined with parchment, about 1 inch apart from one another (the cookies will spread).
6. Bake for 11 to 14 minutes or until cookies have barely begun to brown.
7. Allow cookies to cool for at least 5 minutes before serving. Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

    This is exactly like Momofuku’s cornflake chocolate chip marshmallow cookies, except with Rice Krispies!

    I love putting rice krispies into unexpected places for fun texture and these sound perfect! And they go so well with marshmallows & chocolate! The giveaway I hosted for your book was a big hit, too.

  3. Gauri Not Specified Not Specified

    Any suggestions for substitutions for the marshmallows? I am a vegetarian.
    I love the book – I made 3 of the recipes for thanksgiving and they were a HUGE hit!
    Thanks!!

      I think the easiest sub would be to just buy vegan marshmallows, which is what I did. They sell them at Whole Foods if there’s one near you or there’s a few stores that sell them online.

  4. Rachel (Two Healthy Plates) Not Specified Not Specified

    These cookies sound like so much fun – they would be a perfect addition to this years cookie tray!

  5. Maggie Not Specified Not Specified

    I have a half box of krispies and some leftover marshmallows and I am so making these instead of a half pan of rice krispie treats!

    Chocolate AND rice krispie treats AND cookies together? Uh, yes please.

  13. Sara @ The Cozy Herbivore Not Specified Not Specified

    What? No. Shut up your face. Rice Krispy Treats are my favorite. Chocolate Chip Cookies are my favorite. And you had to go and combine them into one amazing Super Treat. I’m thinking naughty thoughts now. Thoughts like “I should make these right now”. Gorgeous!

  14. aruna Not Specified Not Specified

    what the what!!! yum!!

  15. Stefanie @ Sarcastic Cooking Not Specified Not Specified

    Ahhhh!!! I am going crazy for these guys! Brilliant! Also, you are not the only one who had decorations up the day after Thanksgiving! I may or may not have snuck a few of them out before Thanksgiving too!

  16. Shannon Reiswig Not Specified Not Specified

    I wonder if you could sub marshmallow fluff for the marshmallows? Marshmallow fluff doesn’t have gelatin in it. I want to make these right meow, but my boyfriend is also a vegetarian and would hate me forever if I made these and he couldn’t eat them.

  17. Katie @ Blonde Ambition Not Specified Not Specified

    This is such a fun idea! I like rice krispies treats, but my boyfriend LOVES them. Like, possibly more than he loves me. But if I make these for him, I might be able to even the score ;)

  18. Emma Not Specified Not Specified

    making these bad boys tomorrow!

  19. Sarah Not Specified Not Specified

    ALL the good things in a cookie. Your styling and photography blow me away as usual, ladies!

  20. Alissa Not Specified Not Specified

    I’m having trouble with these cookies spreading out too far, they’re coming out more like a lace cookie and are too thin :( any suggestions? Thank you!

    To spoonforkbacon,

    The first line of ur directions says to mix in MILK, egg and etc. BUT there’s no measurement for milk in the ingredients?! Sigh, i’m already halfway through mixing and will hve to continue w/o. Hope the cookies turn out.

    Thanks for revising the recipe! I’m going to try again this weekend.

    • Jenny Park Not Specified Not Specified

      Not a problem…sorry there was an issue the first time. I should warn though that any marshmallows on the sides of the cookies will still cause a nut lace-ish spreading effect, BUT only in the marshmallow area and the overall cookies turn out great!

    The dough on these was really difficult to work with – I kept thinking that I hadn’t used enough liquid or butter. Did anyone else find this to be true? It was all crumbly nuggets and hard to make a cookie dough ball. However – the cookies that did come out were so delicious!!

    • Lyndsey Not Specified Not Specified

      I had the same problem. There was no way to “fold in” the extras…I had to get my hands in there and kind of mush everything together so it would stick. They crumbled when I put them on the cookie sheet too, had to make dough balls. First batch was a mess; looked nothing like the picture. All the marshmallows created holes and cracks in the cookies. Put the rest of the dough into a glass baking dish and made cookie ‘bars,’ which turned out nice.

      • Lyndsey Not Specified Not Specified

        Those pretty cookies had to have been meticulously arranged before baking!

      • Jenny Park Not Specified Not Specified

        I used a stand mixer to mix my dough and had no issues. If the dough is too dry, adding 2-4 tablespoons of milk will make that problem go away!

        • Lyndsey Not Specified Not Specified

          Thanks for the tips! I’m kinda an amateur in the kitchen, so I don’t know what to improvise with and am very strict on recipes. I’ll try again :) Thanks for the response!

  29. Tara Not Specified Not Specified

    I had the same problem, the dough was really dry. I had to add some water so I could form dough balls.

  30. Stefanie @ Sarcastic Cooking Not Specified Not Specified

    I just made these and had no problems at all! They are delicious! I kept the dough in the fridge for an hour before making them into balls. I baked them in smaller batches and then placed the dough back in the fridge in between. Great recipe, so light and crunchy!

  31. Shelley Not Specified Not Specified

    just read the update and mine are in the oven right now. wish I would’ve known that before I made them today :( oh well.

  32. jackie Not Specified Not Specified

    I just made these and mine spread together instead of remaining thick and chewy, like other commenters above. I had written down the recipe before the milk was taken out, so I’m not sure if it was that or something else. Any suggestions?

  33. Kimberley Not Specified Not Specified

    These are delicious! I’m making them as a part of my cookies Xmas gifts for family and friends this year. I’m thinking these are going to be everyone’s favorites. I probably didn’t incorporate the Krispies and marshmallows as well as I could. I noticed anywhere that the marshmallows were on the outside, the ending up cooking out and turning into a brittle-like thing. I just broke that stuff off of the cookies.

    eek! I cant wait to try these! Tonight I think!

  38. trisha Not Specified Not Specified

    Just made these last night with the updated recipe but I used M&M’s instead of chocolate chips. I formed the dough balls by hand and refrigerated dough between batches. They were so delicious! Thank you for melding two of my families favorite treats, we will be making these often!

  39. Katherine Not Specified Not Specified

    Hi–Major problems here. Followed the recipe to the T but they came out flat with some liquified sugar bits. They still tasted decent, but they weren’t really cookies! Any help?

    I love them but how many calories etc. ?

    This is definitely the most crumbly cookie dough I’ve ever worked with, nearly impossible to keep the balls formed (it seemed like there wasn’t enough of the dough to mix in the amount of rice krispies entirely). The results were good in the end, though and I can always make adjustments next time. For those who don’t have baking parchment- bake at 325 with greased foil for 7 minutes, let cool completely before lifting. Will probably make these again, thanks for the recipe!

    • Jenny Park Not Specified Not Specified

      Yes the dough is rather crumbly and you can alleviate that with the addition of 1-2 tablespoons of milk! (Also using a hand or stand mixer to really incorporate the ingredients together is helpful)
