So usually if I drastically change a recipe I'll wait to review it until I can talk about it as written (or close to) but this is so ridiculously good it's just not happening this time! As I was pulling the ingredients for this one the Nutella was right next to the PB practically staring me down. Once you spot the Nutella how is regular PB going to satisfy? It's not! So (Nutella in hand) I realize that a little cocoa powder will probably keep the Nutella from getting lost in the other ingredients. Awesome I had Hershey's Special Dark! I just subbed about 2 Tbsp cocoa powder for that amount of flour and subbed equal parts Nutella for PB. Dang! Using golf-ball sized scoops (flattened slightly works best) I pulled mine at 11 minutes; they were super tender and still moist inside but with a little chewiness. I love the crunch from the rice crispies and the slight crackling on the outside. I'm plotting additions of coconut pecans maybe even hazelnuts to hang out with the Nutella! Sorry that I don't know how they compare to the as-is version but Chocolatey Joe is my new best friend. Read More

I wasn't that impressed with the cookie. The texture is not what I had hoped for and the peanut butter taste overwhelms the rest of the ingredients. I will not be making again. Read More

9-16-2016 ~The mixing directions for this recipe are very unconventional – but these cookies were so “D” good I won’t hold that against it. First I tried half a cookie, for purposes of writing this review. And then I finished it. And then, throwing caution to the wind, I had another. Yeah, that good. First, they’re pretty; all perfectly round and craggy looking. That’s a plus right from the beginning, as their appearance draws you to them. They are soft and chewy, but with an appealing contrast in texture with the “crisp rice cereal” (aka Rice Krispies) and the oats. By the way, the submitter refers to both “crisp rice cereal” and “puffed rice cereal” in the recipe and of course these are two different things – I assumed her intent to be Rice Krispies. They are buttery, peanut buttery and not too sweet – a good old-fashioned cookie jar cookie. Try eating just one. (Note: I mixed these up using the conventional method – cream the butter and sugars, but not too long or your cookies will turn out flat, add the eggs and vanilla, mix in the flour mixture, to which I added 1/2 tsp. salt, and then the oats and Rice Krispies. Then, chill dough a good hour before dropping on cookie sheets) Read More

I made these just exactly as described but used Cocoa Krispies as I am in Europe and cannot get regular rice cereal. The result was yummy. My four-year-old son office mates family members all devoured them. Lovely mix of flavors and the crispy texture is a sure hit. Read More

This was a great cookie. I made them 'as is' and they were really good. I added some chopped semi-sweet chocolate to half the batter for myself and it was great addition. This will definetly be a staple cookie for me. Read More
