An excellent happy surprise! As I made these I was unfortunately prepared to be disappointed. The dough was dry and crumbly so I expected the resulting cookie to be the same. NOT! The cookie is just how I like them and don't often get - crunchy! Finally a crunchy (and crispy too obviously from the Rice Krisipies) chocolate chip cookie! Hmmmm the dry and somewhat crumbly dough made for a crunchy cookie - that makes sense! I suppose if you're not a crunchy cookie lover like I am you could always use half brown sugar instead of all white or add an extra egg or a little less flour or add a little milk any or all of which would make for a more moist chewy cookie - or move on to another recipe altogether because this one is just fine as is and I'm sure was designed to have the appealling crunch I love. I used a 1 T. scoop which made for cute perfectly shaped little cookies great for popping in your mouth one after another. Read More

I loved the idea of having rice crispies in chocolate chip cookies but found the dough extremely dry and had a rough time getting them to form into a ball I will try again with 1 cup of butter and 2 eggs. Read More

These cookies turned out good. They were a different kind of chocolate chip cookie more "cake" like. I added in an extra egg and put a cup less of the rice cereal. The rice cereal made them chewy and crispy. I would use only 1 cup rice cereal. This recipie is a keeper! Read More

They bake up really nice looking and I didn't have any trouble with the mixture really fast and easy. It tastes and smells pretty good. I would say this cookie is a kid's type of cookie. Read More

These cookies were welcome at our picnic. Having followed the recipe exactly they seemed technically correct to me unlike what other reviewers had said. I just needed a little extra muscle in my stirring arm when making the dough and ended up mixing the chips and cereal through with my hands. Kinda messy to assemble into neat little mounds on the cookie sheet but I'm not afraid to get my hands dirty! Read More

I substituted the white sugar with 1 1/3 C. molasses deducted 5 tbsp of softened butter and replaced whole wheat flour for all-purpose flour. My 3 year old loves them and I definitely enjoy the chocolate fix without feeling too guilty. Read More
