Good Sunday night everybody!

I made these fun little treats tonight for my oldest son’s family Birthday party at my Mom’s. They are quick, easy and oh so fun to eat. I just bought this awesome mini cheesecake tin from William Sonoma that made these treat so cute, you can also use a mini muffin tin for a similar effect.

These treats are another variation of my Pillsbury Bake-off entry that I keep playing with. I love the combination of rice crispy treats with brownies and now cookies. Next time you need to take a treat to a party, these will be a sure hit!

I’m off to watch the women’s gymnastics before I crash, have a great night!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Cup Treats

½ batch of your favorite cookie dough recipe

3 Cups Mini Marshmallows
2 Tablespoons butter
3 ½ Cups rice crispy cereal

1 Cup semi sweet chocolate chips
2 Tablespoons coconut oil (you can also use heavy cream)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Press cookie dough into mini cheesecake tins or mini muffin tins filled about ¾ way full. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until cooked through. Remove from oven and drizzle 1 teaspoon caramel ice cream topping over each cup.

2. Place marshmallows and butter into a large microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 1-2 minutes or until puffed up. Stir in rice crispy cereal until well combined. Scoop a spoonful of mixture and place over cookie cups. Spray hands with cooking spray and press gently to even out.

3. Place chocolate chips into a medium microwave safe bowl and microwave in 30 second intervals until melted and smooth. Stir in coconut oil or heavy cream until shiny and smooth. Drizzle over top of brownies.

I couldn’t resist this picture of my cutie. I don’t think he liked his Kung Fu Panda Double Sword from my mom at all! I love my boys!

Coming next is a new creamy pasta that I wish I could eat every day! See you soon!
