Circus Cookie Krispie Treats

Circus Cookie Krispie Treats are SO easy.. basically like frosted animal crackers inside a rice krispie treat…

So you guys.

All y’all.

EVERYBODY…

Rock your body…

Wait.

Gah.

I’m sorry.

 

I just I haven’t really slept.

And I’m hopped up on sugar.

And I feel all burgly-murgly.

 

I can’t be held responsible for what I write here.

 

But here’s the thing, you still love me even when I don’t make sense, right?

I think you will.

Because these Circus Cookie Krispie are the funnest.

Actually this recipe was sent to me from an awesome reader named Nicole.

I love it when you guys send me ideas…because sometimes my brain gets fried.  Like today. Hence all the burgly-murgly.

Anyhow, it’s such a simple idea I gave myself a Wet Willy for not thinking it up on my own.

Ok, gross.  I totally didn’t do that.

But I did think, “I wish I thought of that”.

So, thanks Nicole for the idea!  Your krispies rock!

They’re totally easy.  Grab some of those Frosted Animal cookies…you know, the ones that are impossible to stop eating…

And chop them up.

Then make your usual krispie treats, going a little heavier on the marshmallow.

Mix in the cookies…

And stir it all together.

The frosting might melt off the cookies a bit, turning your krispies pink.  This is completely ok.

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

  2. Animal cookies are so nostalgic for me. As kids, my sisters and I were only allowed to eat them when we went over to my grandparents’ house. Now that I’m in college…that means free rein! I definitely need to get my hands on some of them so I can make these asap!

  3. I’ve been out of the US for 10 years now and Circus Animals are one of the things that I can’t get here that I have INTENSE cravings for every once in a while. So, thanks for that 😛

  4. Shelly you just combined my favorites in one!!! Seriously I love RKTreats of any kind and have been pondering how to doctor them up with something other than PB/chocolate and you just answered my cravings that I didnt know I had! I love circus animals. That frosted exterior is the best. And then the white choc + sprinkles you put on these – I need. Pinned!
