Cookie Dough Rice Krispie Treats

These Cookie Dough Krispie Treats are super simple, no-bake and ridiculously yummy! All my favorite things in one place!

Cookie Dough Krispie Treats are my two favorite sweet treats in one place! 

Honestly I had to check back through my rice krispie treat recipes to make sure I had never made these before…sometimes I make something.. like get all the way through making and taking pictures and realize that DUDE, YOU MADE THIS 3 YEARS AGO ALREADY AND WROTE A POST ABOUT THEM! Bah.

That situation has happened (more than once) and it’s basically the most annoying situation EVER. Anyhow, when I went back through the archives and realized I HADN’T had cookie dough and krispie treats dance the samba. Best day ever!IMG_5613 copy

So y’all. Let’s just do this real quick, because these Cookie Dough Krispie Treats are super simple and are pretty much no brains necessary, which here in the middle of December works best for me.

First just make your krispie treat layer. I made a version of my Perfect Rice Krispie Treat Recipe..only a “version”, because the reason that recipe is so stand alone perfect is of it’s ooey, gooey factor. And with this recipe, I wanted the krispie treat base to be a bit sturdier, and less gooey. So basically I used less marshmallows.



Yeah, make the krispie treats and set those aside.

Next up whip up a batch of simple egg-free cookie dough! This stuff..omg.


Spread that all up on your base layer.


Oooh Ahhhh.


Now, let’s take it to the next level and make a milk chocolate ganache to pour all up on there.




Chill the whole she-bang for a bit in the fridge to set the chocolate and then you have this…

These cookie dough krispie treats are my two favorites in one place!


Krispie Layer

  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 8 cups mini marshmallows
  • 6 cups rice krispie cereal

Cookie Dough Layer

  • 1 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Milk Chocolate Ganache

  • 7 ounces chopped milk chocolate
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream


Krispie Layer

  1. Line a 9×13 pan with foil and spray lightly with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan over low heat, melt butter. Once melted add in marshmallows, stirring continuously until they are melted. Immediately remove from heat and stir in cereal.
  3. Once the cereal is completely combined with the melted marshmallow, spread into pan and press evenly. Set aside while you’re making your cookie dough.

Cookie Dough

  1. Beat butter and both sugars until combined. Add in milk, vanilla and salt and mix until smooth, scraping the sides as necessary.
  2. Turn mixer to low and add in the flour until incorporated. Finally stir in the chocolate chips.
  3. Spread the cookie dough over the krispie layer.

Milk Chocolate Ganache

  1. Chop milk chocolate and place in a heat safe bowl.
  2. Heat heavy cream until very hot and steaming, but not boiling. Pour hot cream over the milk chocolate and allow to sit for 1 minute to melt and soften the chocolate. Then stir the mixture until chocolate is completely melted. Allow chocolate to sit for 5 minutes to cool slightly and then pour on the cookie dough layer. Spread the chocolate to the edges of the pan and refrigerate for 20-30 minutes until chocolate is set.
  3. Remove from refrigerator and cut into squares.


As always, krispie treats are, in my opinion, best if served same day.
But if you need to, store airtight in refrigerator for up to 3 days. Allow to come to room temperature before serving.

    I was just thinking about something like this — perfect! But I’m making homemade marshmallows to mix-in. Fresh, vanilla marshmallows will be wonderful with the cookie dough — I had been thinking peanut butter…. Lots of ideas, none of them healthy. (yay!)

    Hate to ask, but how about freezing? Years ago, I always had Krispy treats in the freezer, wrapped individually. They were wonderful.

    I made these today and they are AMAZING!!! So rice krispie base stayed nice and crunchy and gooey. Will be making these again next weekend for a Christmas event. Thanks for the great recipe!!

    Hi! Trying to decide between the avalanche bars and these cookie dough rice Krispy treats. It’s for a smallish get together where we will be playing ping pong and drinking. Beer :). I can’t decide!
    Thanks- love your recipes!
