I went on a Pinterest bender while feeding Maggie earlier this week which led me to a fierce craving for Rice Krispy treats with a twist. When I spotted Cookie Butter & Cocoa spread at Trader Joe's, I had this treat lurking at the forefront of my mind. I grabbed a jar and headed home to create a sugary, crunchy treat.
I served these at my PEPS Happy Hour last night and my friends raved about them. They also asked how I had time to make these treats with a toddler and a newborn. Well let me tell you, you can totally whip these up in less than 15 minutes and it's a great cookie to make with your toddler. Mine especially loved stirring the melted butter and marshmallows.
