Rice Krispie Treat Chocolate Chip Cookies
Chocolate chip cookie meets rice krispie treats in this fun mashup!
- ¾ cup unsalted butter (85 grams), softened to room temperature
- 1 cup packed light or dark brown sugar (210 grams)
- ½ cup granulate sugar (100 grams)
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups all-purpose flour (240 grams)
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 2 cups crispy rice cereal (56 grams)
- 1 cup semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips (170 grams)
- About 9 regular sized marshmallows
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line sheet pans with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
With an electric mixer, beat butter with brown sugar and granulated sugar for several minutes until pale and creamy, scraping down the bowl at least once.
Add eggs one a time, followed by the vanilla, mixing and scraping the bowl after each.
Add the flour, baking soda, and salt and mix just until the dough just starts to come together.
Add the crispy rice cereal and the chocolate chips and mix until combined.
Portion dough into large 3 tablespoon rounds (this is the cookie scoop I use
Use a sharp knife or kitchen shears to cut marshmallows in half crosswise. Place a half into the center of each cookie dough portion. Use your hands to work the dough around the marshmallow so that the marshmallow is completely concealed inside.
Bake for 8-10 minutes, just until cookie edges start to turn golden brown, the tops of the cookies no longer appear shiny and wet, and the marshmallow has just puffed up through the center. (If you bake the cookies too long, the marshmallow will melt and disappear completely.)
Let cookies cool on the sheet pan for 1-2 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
Enjoy these cookies the day they are baked. The marshmallow centers will slowy dissolve so these cookies won't look pretty for long.
