Chocolate Chip Cookie Cup Treats

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!

    Who wouldn’t love these cute looking treats? I’ve been thinking about a way of using crispy rice lately but I’m such a chicken…I’m afraid they won’t remain as crispy as they are coming out from the box.

    This really knocks my socks off. My youngest daughter’s birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks and she’d love forever if I made this for her. I love anybody forever if they made these for me!

    Those are so pretty! I love that they look so elegant but are so familiar and kid friendly too. What a fun birthday party! I’ve got a boy around here who just isn’t happy if he doesn’t have a sword or light saber handy at all times. It’s strangely endearing. It’s got to be that man instinct to protect. Have a great week. I’m looking forward to your pasta.

    It’s Mona. I had a few minutes this morning to peek in at the goods and I see you posted those scrumptious choc chip cookie treats. They sure were a hit at the party! You are amazing. I wish I could take a little bit of credit for your creativeness, but my cooking, as you know, doesn’t even compare. You have a winner every time! Keep on cooking….. Love, Mona

    I’ve been watching gymnastics too.
    Tonight, Nadia (?) was robbed from the bars title! Don’t you think? I don’t know how they figured out who won, if they tied.

    Anyway, the cups look very good. They’re beautifully presented!
