Today we’re doing Part One of a two part post on these little treats.
Part Two will be a quick tutorial on how to make a cute glass pedestal to display the cookies on.
The recipe is a very quick and easy one called Chocolate Rice Krispie Cookies.
The recipe card didn’t have a name, so that’s what I’m naming them.
These taste suspiciously like the old Haystack cookies except instead of chow mein noodles, they have Rice Krispies in them.
This card has my mom’s name on it, so chances are she got this recipe from a co-worker.
Funny – this recipe has chocolate in it. Hmmm. Yes – it’s from my mom!
Here is the recipe as I made it:
Chocolate Rice Krispie Cookies
1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup of butterscotch chips
2 Tablespoons peanut butter
4 cups Rice Krispies cereal
Its easy to melt the chips and peanut butter in the microwave.
I used my trusty little ice cream scoop to make these as uniform as possible. Without it I think they would have been more spread out. The scoop kept them a bit more mounded.
I let them sit about an hour to firm up and then I hid them so they would at least last overnight.
These also make great Halloween treats for girlfriends!
Part Two coming on Friday – check back for a quick tutorial on how to make these cute pedestals!
