Very delicious. Not having Rice Crispies, I subbed squished Rice Chex and have to agree with Karen that the cereal does add a nice element of surprise to the texture. For those who don't/can't enjoy nuts and coconut, I set aside some of the dough and added peanut butter chips. Two thumbs up for these cookies - either way! **Oh, and I did add about 1/2 tsp. salt. When I tasted the dough, it just struck me that some salt would tone down the sweetness and "brighten" the flavors.**
A great recipe. I've been testing many and this is a keeper. FYI, I ALWAYS add 1 Tblsp of vanilla to all choc chip recipes. Mix in flour mixture one cup at a time and don't overmix.
I agree. These are good cookies. Crispy and chewy at the same time. I added an extra tsp of vanilla because....I like it.
To: Karen Monahan "Oh My" and "Wow" and "Extra-Yummy"!!!! These cookies are great. Followed your recipe to the letter; just omitted the walnuts/pecans. Oh, they are sooooo good! Thanks for posting another winner! Laudee C. Colorado
Well you sure can't buy these at your friendly neighbourhood Safeway store!!! For the little bit of time and work (I had them all done in an hour) these took, it was well worth it. Think I'll have a "cookie" party soon.??
After reading all the reviews I HAD to try these, and I have to say I concur....they are wonderful. I too, added salt,vanilla and a handful of peanut butter chips...the possibilities are endless! yum!
These are great chocolate chip cookies, the cereal adds a nice crunch, the coconut flavor and they are just different enough to be something extra special!
Delicious Karen!! My son has been begging for "homemade" chocolate chip cookies for a while now and these were perfect. Nice soft dough...so easy to mix up. I omitted the nuts cause no one here is fond of them and doubled the coconut to 2 cups (didn't want to save 1/2 a bag!). Increased the vanilla too....just because I love the flavour! (I generally just pour vanilla in without measuring....I'm sure Martha Stewart wouldn't approve!!). Thanks for a great cookie Karen!
These are a great variation of the chocolate chip cookies I normally make. The Rice Krispies and coconut make them very crispy. Thanks for a great recipe!
We love these cookies. They are good with or without nuts and coconut. The rice krispies add the "oh my" surprise to the texture! I made some last weekend to send to my 2 boys at college and had to make more for my son at home today! Had to be fair... not that I didn't want some for myself!!!
