How many variations can there be on the classic rice krispy treat? Apparently, it’s never ending, Pinterest it and you’ll see (or click here). Like how I verb’d that? Seriously, it’s gonna happen, just like how people say, “Google it”—just go with me on this.
And when you do Pinterest the term rice krispie, I’m pretty sure you’ll find page after page of variations and maybe one classically made. Why is that? What’s wrong with the classic?
Hmm. Nothing really, other than the classic is plain, familiar—it’s unaccessorized and unembellished—all the things my desserts are not. No friends, sprinkles, crumbing, stuffings, chocolate pours and all that “accessorizing” will cover up a multitude of mistakes like uneven layers, dips, divets, sloppy frostings or sometimes it’s just a top-off. You know what I mean. Or maybe you don’t and all that “be-dazzling” is my bit of trickery.
Yeah, I’m a big hack.
But in this instance all that bedazzles in this classic—the Pirouline cookie stuffing and the cookie butter (think Biscoff spread) mixed with melted marshmallow makes this riff a solid good treat that’s not better than the classic, it’s just different.
Preparation: Lightly cover 8x8 pan with bake spray or line with parchment or foil. NOTE: Cookie butter spread can be found at Trader's Joes or you can just use Biscoff Spread. If neither is available you can omit it completely or replace with Nutella or peanut butter

You can never have too many RKTreat recipes and I love making them with Cookie Butter, PB, you name it, I love stirring in some nut butters or Nutella. And your pirouline idea is GENIUS!
Where can you find the recipe?

RKTs, TJ’s Cookie Butter and those addictive Pirouline cookies ROCK! And, so do your Rice Krispie Treats incorporating them all!
Heather @ French Press says
these are simply stunning! I love the pirouline filling!
I have never heard of Pirouline cookies, but I feel like I need them now! These look so amazing and I love your shot of them!
Oh and I am all about over the top, accessorized desserts. The more chocolate drips or caramel the better in my opinion!
Elizabeth @ Confessions of a Baking Queen says
Um pirouline in between rice krispies?! Genius!!
Your embellishments are where it’s at! That’s what makes all your recipes your own. Love it.

Hello! I write a weekly post on my blog called the Weekend Wrap-Up, where I share some of my favorite web finds from the past week. I thought these rice krispie treats were so unique, that I featured it in this week’s post. I wanted to thank you for such a great recipe and have included the link to the wrap-up in case you’re interested. Enjoy your weekend!
i tried making these but the chocolate wouldn’t melt together nicely with the heavy cream. do you know what i might be doing wrong? should i add more heavy cream?
