The "compost" cookie at the Momofuku Milk Bar in NYC inspired these crispy rice treats. They have everything but the kitchen sink in them: pretzels, Oreos, milk chocolate and potato chips. They are all added to the rice cereal and tossed with buttery marshmallows, and it's seriously tasty. You can add any of your favorite snack foods to the recipe, just chop them up, so you can press the treats into a heart shaped cookie cutter. They are perfect to make with kids, but really, adults love them just as much.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • One 10-ounce bag marshmallows
  • Pinch salt (make it a large pinch)
  • 4 ounces milk chocolate, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped pretzels
  • 1/2 cup crushed chocolate sandwich cookies, such as Oreos
  • 1/4 cup crushed potato chips
  • 5 cups rice cereal

Directions

To make the treats: Line a cookie sheet with greased parchment (or wax paper). 

Melt the butter over low heat, add the vanilla, marshmallows and salt. Stir until completely melted and smooth. 

Dump in the chocolate, pretzels, chocolate sandwich cookies and chips (or whatever goodies you've chosen). 

Add the rice cereal and stir together. 

For a Valentine's treat, grease a heart shaped cookie cutter with grease and quickly press the rice mixture into it. Work quickly so the mixture doesn't stiffen up too much. 

You want to work on greased parchment paper or wax paper so the treats won't stick. 

Wrap them immediately after shaping or they will get too hard.
