Cookie Butter Crispy Treats | A Teaspoon of Happiness

I have never made rice crispy treats before. Ever. In fact, I don’t even really like them that much. At least not the packaged kind (ick).  But when I saw Rice Krispies cereal in a French grocery store, I immediately hoarded a box into our shopping cart. Like if I didn’t buy them right then and there, they might never return.

You see, there aren’t very many cereal choices for me here in France. I am definitely not a fan of the sweet, sugary cereals, and that seems to be all you can get here. Not to be insensitive, but it almost disgusts me how many choices of chocolate cereal there are. Luckily, I wasn’t allowed to eat that kind of cereal as a kid, so I never learned to like it and I would choose Crispix or granola over Cocoa Puffs any day.

Of course, I’ve been to the store several times since I purchased that box of Rice Krispies, and they are still always there, but I’m still glad I impulsively picked one up because it inspired me to make a delicious and super easy treat. I combined one of my favorite French (okay, maybe it’s really just European) flavors with a classic American recipe. Speculoos + Rice Krispies = wonderful.

To make these cookie butter crispy treats, you only need 4 ingredients. Butter (*update:* or dairy free margarine such as Smart Balance or vegan butter), marshmallows, cookie butter and cereal. You can find cookie butter at most grocery stores in the states, if you look for Biscoff spread. It has a red lid. I know Trader Joe’s also makes their own, but we’ve never lived near a store so I can’t tell you what it tastes like.

    I haven’t been able to try actual Biscoff spread (doesn’t seem to be available in the Canadian grocery stores I frequent) but there are other cookie butters and I LOVE them. It’s dangerous stuff. I loved it in popsicles I made over the summer and I bet I would love these treats too!

      You can’t get Biscoff? That’s terrible! What about Amazon? At least you have some kind of cookie butter though. Do you have the recipe for those popsicles on your blog? I need to see it!

    Oh my gosh – can you believe I’ve never had cookie butter? But it sounds delicious, so it’s something I’ve got to try. And, I’m with you – I’m not big on sugary cereals – but I’m really glad you made these treats, because they look amazing!

    Never made rice crispy treats?! I’m so glad you remedied that situation because these look addicting (and I’m a rice crispy treats fiend!). This is just the second time I’ve heard of cookie butter, but I’m so intrigued! Pinned!
