Sugar Cookie Rice Krispie Treats

We make a lot of Rice Krispie treats around here. I don’t mean like, a few times a month a lot, or ever once a week a lot. I mean, like, a lot of Rice Krispie treats. My husband snarffles down a handful as a midnight snack, my oldest requests them in his lunch nearly everyday and the girls are all over them. Sometimes I add things like wheat germ or ground flax seeds to them and no one is ever the wiser, in this case however, I added more sugar to them via the addition of sugar cookie mix. I know, I know. A treat comprised mostly of marshmallows and I added more sugar? Blame Jaclyn over at Cooking Classy for this one. Aren’t her pictures so cute?! Don’t they make you want to run to your kitchen and whip up a batch? You’re a dirty liar, I know they do.

Ahem.

I had to run to the grocery store to pick up some cookie mix because DUH I don’t keep that shit in my house on the regular. Theeen, I ran to my kitchen and whipped up a batch – with my husband because he was intrigued. I was messing with one of his favorite snacks, so he wanted to know what was up.

After we made them, (sorta) let them cool and iced them, they were good but not so much better than regular Rice Krispie treats for me to add the cookie mix to them all the time. It did get me thinking though, if adding sugar cookie mix made them taste sort of like a sugar cookie, what about adding chocolate cookie mix? Is that even a thing? It must be. Or maybe the same amount of brownie mix? I will have to experiment!

For the frosting, beat the butter, milk, vanilla, salt and icing sugar till it’s the consistency you’re going for. If you want thicker frosting, add more icing sugar. Spread it over the top of your cooled Rice Krispie treats and you’re done. Well, add some sprinkles or something to make them festive!
