Crunchy Crispy Cookies

Baking has taken a back seat this summer. Between the heat (which has been unreal) to the pregnancy fatigue (which has also been unreal) baking has become a hobby from my past. A few nights ago I wanted cookies. NOW. And not just cookies, homemade cookies. So I hobbled walked into the kitchen and got to work. After making a couple original cookie recipes I have become quite confident in my abilities to throw things together and see what happens.  These came out awesome! I think the texture at first can be a bit surprising, you can definitely "feel" the rice krispies in the cookie in each bite. They have a subtle peanut butter hint to them with chocolate chips in each bite. Definitely a fun twist on the traditional chocolate chip cookie- give it a shot!

1 stick butter, melted
1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup rice krispies
1 cup flour
3/4 cup chocolate chips

1- Preheat the oven to 350.
2- In a large bowl stir the chunky peanut butter into the melted butter while it's still hot, stirring well. Add the sugars and mix.
3- Stir in the egg, vanilla, and salt. Mix until well incorporated.
4- Mix in the rice krispies and flour until well incorporated, stir in the chocolate chips.
5- Scoop by the tablespoon onto a greased cookie sheet or a silpat lined sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes, until golden on the edges. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.


  1. I love this idea! I'm definitely going to try these. I bet they'd be absolutely delicious with cocoa krispies too!

  2. Yay for another original cookie recipe. I've been meaning to try and make my own. Hope you're doing well.

  3. Rice Krispies do add a fun texture to cookies. Peanut butter would make them even better.

  4. I love having a crunch (that is not a nut) in my cookies. Rice Krispies are a great addition to ANY cookie. These look crave worthy.
