Rice Krispies Chocolate Chip Cookies

Recently while shopping we saw one of those enormous more-than-family-sized boxes of Rice Krispies cereal and decided that we should get it... with only two people and a shih tzu at home, we must have thought it was a good idea at the time to buy 700 LBS of the same kind of cereal for some reason. I think Daniel said this would force me to make his favorite rice krispy treats more often (the mexican vanilla ones... though if we made them often enough to get rid of the box, Daniel's love for the treats would quickly fade into totally-over-it-ness). So when I saw this recipe for cookies with rice krispies in it, I bookmarked it immediately knowing I'd be able to use up some of our supply of the cereal. The original recipe is from Imperial Sugar's website, and it was adapted on Cookie Madness here. I made some more changes to the recipe.

Rice Krispy Chocolate Chip Cookies, adapted from Imperial Sugar and Cookie Madness
makes about 24 cookies
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 large egg, room temperature
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 heaping cup Rice Krispies cereal

Preheat to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
Using an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugars together. Add the vanilla and egg, mixing just until incorporated.
In a separate bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together to mix. Add flour mixture to sugar mixture and stir until almost blended. Add the chips and cereal and stir until mixed.
Drop by tablespoons, spacing 2 ½ inches apart, onto cookies sheets. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until slightly golden brown around edges.

The cookies came out great. The crunchy from the cereal mixes really well with the chocolate chips. And it really was a cinch to put together - very quick! Would definitely make these again! (Maybe a good Christmas cookie?)

Those cookies look perfect! I made waffles with rice crispies before but never cookies. I'll have to try it.

I've used rice krispies in cookies before as a nut alternative - and they worked great!

Stephanie it's really hard to get excited about cookies when I've just drooled over mexican vanilla rice crispy treats. Oh, yeah, and more marshmallows are always better. It will never crumble then. :)

With all that said I bet these would be fun cookies to serve and not tell anyone what's in them.

Were they as good as they sound? I'm not a fan of the "treats" but I have a favorite xmas cookie recipe that combines pb and krispies. This sounds like one I might love too.

I made these today and mine ended up like flat discs. Are you sure about the 1.25 cups of flour? It seems like too little.

I was perusing blogs and found yours. I had to laugh when I saw the little tag with the apron because I thought to myself "hey that was just in FN magazine" and then I stroll down further and see my LOVE coasters!
