I first tried these at my neighbor, L’s. I couldn’t figure out why her chocolate chip cookies tasted so much better than mine. I finally asked her to share her secret and she told me Rice Crispies! If you haven’t tried these yet, here is the recipe. I’m making up a batch today to hand out for Valentine’s Day tomorrow.

Chocolate Chip Cookies with Rice Crispies

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 cup sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 cups Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies® cereal

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels

In small mixing bowl combine flour, soda and salt. Set aside. In large mixing bowl, beat together margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla. Beat well. Add flour mixture, mixing until combined. Stir in Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies® cereal and chocolate morsels. Drop by level measuring tablespoon onto baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350°F about 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove immediately from baking sheets and cool on wire racks. Store in airtight container. Enjoy!
