Loved the Rice Krispies in these cookies. Everyone who tried them liked the crunch it added. This is a recipe worth holding on to.

I had some rice krispies I was trying to use up in some kind of a baked good that I could freeze for lunches. In my search I found this lovely recipe. I doubled it to use up the 2 cups of cereal I had left. I also did not have quite enough butter so I used 3/4 butter and subbed applesauce for the remaining. These taste like traditional chocolate chip cookies with a little crunch. We enjoyed them warm and they freeze and drop into lunches very well. When I was making the batter I kept thinking that it was not nearly wet enough to accept the additions of oatmeal, chocolate, and cereal, but it did amirably. Nice cookies. Thanks!
