If you still haven’t tried Biscoff Cookie Spread, then I strongly recommend it! It is a favorite in my house, and I have to make myself not eat it straight from the jar with a spoon. Yes, it’s that good! Another favorite around here are cereal treats. I know that traditionally they are made with Rice Krispies, but I often make them with remnants of cereal in the pantry. I really like using Cheerios, or in this case ‘Joe’s O’s’ from Trader Joe’s.
I needed a quick and easy dessert to take to church the other evening (after I had a pie that turned out, uhmmm, let’s just say, less than desirable!) so I searched my cabinets and came up with these. I’ve made cereal treats with Biscoff before, but the chocolate-butterscotch topping really put these over the top. They were delicious!
Of course, a few pumpkin sprinkles on top makes them even better (according to my children!)
Biscoff Cereal Treats w/Chocolate-Butterscotch Frosting
- 6 cups cereal crispies, O's, etc.
- 2 Tablespoons butter
- 1/3 cup Cookie Butter
- 1 bag of mini marshmallows
- 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup butterscotch chips
- Sprinkles optional
- Grease a 9x13 dish, set aside.
- Melt butter and cookie butter in a large pot on medium heat, add marshmallows.
- Stir until marshmallows are melted.
- Remove from heat and add cereal.
- Stir until cereal is completed coated.
- Spread cereal mixture into greased pan. It's going to be sticky!
Tip - Spray hands with cooking spray and press cereal into pan. Be careful, it's hot!
- Combine chocolate and butterscotch chips in a microwave safe bowl.
- Microwave on high for 45 seconds.
- Continue microwaving in 15 second intervals until melted, stirring after each 15 seconds.
- Spread melted chocolate mixture over cereal treats.
- Add sprinkles if desired.
- Chill for a few minutes for topping to firm up.
These came together quickly and easily, and no one was the wiser that I had a flat, sunken pie at home (that the kids and I still ate!)

i am really excited to try these, but i’m not sure what the ingredient “cookie butter” is.
Cookie butter is also called Biscoff (a name brand). You can find it in most grocery stores near the peanut butter. It’s made from lightly spiced cookies, but it’s smooth and creamy.

Hi, what size of mini marshmallows? Can’t wait to try these. I live biscoff! 😉

Hi Ive, I believe a bag is around 10 ounces. You need about 4 cups. Enjoy! We love Biscoff too!
