Sugar Cookie Rice Krispies Treats

I was inspired to try this out by the number of different recipes out there that flavor desserts using cake mix. I knew I wanted to make some sort of Rice Krispies treat, but I didn't have any cake mix on hand. I did, however, have a pouch of Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix. 

Basically, I just followed a general Rice Krispies Treat recipe and added sprinkles and cookie mix.


Sugar Cookie Rice Krispies Treats
Ingredients
  • 2T butter, divided
  • 4c mini marshmallows
  • 6c Rice Krispies
  • 1c Sugar cookie mix, divided and sifted
  • 1/4c sprinkles (or one regular-size bottle)
Directions
  1. Grease a 9x13 pan and ready your strip of non-stick foil.
  2. Melt 1T butter over medium heat and 1T of butter in the microwave.
  3. Combine 6c cereal, sprinkles, microwaved butter and 1/3c of cookie mix.
  4. Add mallows to stove-top melted butter and stir until melted.
  5. Stir 1/3c of cookie mix into melted mallows, then pour in the cereal and mix.
  6. Pour mallow-cereal mixture into prepared pan and smash down using the non-stick foil.
  7. Sprinkle the final 1/3c of cookie mix on top of the treats and let cool.
I liked these better than the ones with cake mix. If you are looking for a strong sugar cookie flavor without going through the trials and tribulations of baking, these are a more than suitable alternative.
