Do you remember a cookie from the 70’s with Rice Krispies cereal in them? I recall liking the crispy little bits in them as I never liked nuts in my chocolate chip or oatmeal cookies. The Rice cereal added a delicious layer of crispiness!
Those cookies have been on my mind for some reason and I knew I had to recreate them! I looked around online to see if there is a specific name for cookies with Rice Krispies in them…I found Ranger cookies and Cowboy cookies out there, but most recipes for both of them also contained oats, nuts and coconut.
I wanted to include pastel M and M’s candies as I have spring on my mind! I decided to add some regular semi-sweet chocolate chips to go with the milk chocolate M&M’s – and some peanut butter chips too! I use a much smaller amount of peanut butter chips as I find they can be overpowering.
Ever wonder why homemade drop cookies don’t look like the ones you see in magazines and on websites with the perfectly placed chocolate chips … see the food stylist cookie tricks below…
