Each cookie will feature Night Owl's signature dough, infused with horchata, mixed with chunks of homemade rice crispy treats, and topped with white chocolate and powdered sugar. Take it up a notch with a 32-ounce crowler and three cookies for $20. This special collab will only be available while supplies last.
