Rice Krispy Treats with Cookie Dough
Snowpocalypse Cookies! Why not be extra while you're snowed in?!
Sweet, crunchy, crispy, creamy, chocolatey marshmallowy
While snow records are broken and growing in California, I figured, let's make a favorite, Easy comfort food with a bit of extra. I wasn't sure if this would work, or be any good, but holy crikey, they're so good.
NOTE: Chill the cookie dough so it's easy to scoop and drop in as you pour the mixture into a baking dish. A small melon baller works great.
Make these with or without the cookie dough, but I really think you'll love these with it.

1 bag (10 oz) mini marshmallows + 2 cups mini marshmallows to mix in (not melt)
