Below is my review from Nov 5, 2007. I made them again today and they were so wonderful I decided this HAD to be a 5 star review. I made a full recipe but instead of some of the chocolate chips (about 3/4 cup) I used skor baking bits with chocolate. The toffee and the chocolate together was a wonderful combination. These are very flat cookies but they are really wonderful!********Really yummy crispy cookies. I halved this recipe because of the amount of cereal I had. I used splenda for the white and regular brown sugar for the brown. I rolled these into little balls and they were cute and crisp. There is a little bit of "get in your teeth" from the cereal but we really enjoyed these and the kids got a little more fiber in their diet. Thanks!
