I began making this dessert in high school. I can’t remember where I originally found the recipe. It’s fun and so easy to make that it require absolutely no culinary skill whatsoever.
You need these things:
1 – 18oz package of refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough
1 – 7oz jar of marshmallow cream
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 1/2 cup toasted rice cereal (like Chex)
1/2 cup M&M’s
Preheat oven to 375*F
Grease 9×13 inch baking dish.
Press cookie dough into the bottom of the baking dish (top portion of picture below).
Bake for 15 minutes (bottom portion of picture below).
Drop dollops of peanut butter and marshmallow cream over the cookie dough crust (First portion of picture below.)
Return to oven for 1 minute (Middle portion of picture below).
Sprinkle cereal and M&M’s over the marshmallow cream and peanut butter (Top portion of picture below).
Return to oven for 7 minutes (Bottom portion of picture below).Once it’s cooled, you can cut it into bars and serve it on a plate.
If all goes well, your plate should be empty again within three days.
I made this dessert with gluten free cookie dough for the first time. It tasted just as fabulous.
I love sweet foods. S is more of a spicy/salty person. Other than ice cream, he isn’t into dessert. I didn’t expect him to like this one any more than the other desserts I’ve made. However, for some reason, he loves this!
