Rice Crispy Cookies with Choclate & Butterscotch Chips

I had half a box of Rice Krispies Cereal leftover from my Candy Corn Rice Krispie Treats, but no marshmallows. What’s a girl to do? Make cookies of course! But Rice Krispies in cookies? I hadn’t seen it before and wasn’t sure how it would turn out.

I was pleasantly surprised that the cereal stayed nice and crisp and gave the cookies a nice texture. We are a nut-free house and I sometimes miss the texture of nuts in my favorite cookies so this was a delicious variation.

  1. I am known as The Cookie Lady to my customers, family and friends, I bake for.
    I have to tell you these cookies are everything you want in a cookie. First of all they are
    delicious, I ate more of these myself than I usually do ! They are quick and easy to mix
    together and bake up perfect every time. Thanks so much for this recipe !!

  2. Hi! Would it be a good idea to refrigerate the dough for 30 min or so before baking or will that make the rice krispies soggy? Thanks!

  3. How could I serve these after freezing them? Do I simply let them come to room temperature or do I have to rebake it? Please and thanks!

  4. Kristen, these cookies are outstanding to say the least! I just baked a batch this morning and i cannot believe how good they are! I did not have chocolate chips or butterscotch chips but used salted caramel chips and they are sooooooo good! What a great recipe!

  5. Just made these today. I didn’t have butterscotch chips so I substituted those with salted caramel chips I had picked up from Kroger a while back. Yum! Nice way to use up rice crisped cereal too. My family thanks you!

  6. Hi Kristin! Made these amazing chocolate chip krispie cookies….had to tell you….they were amazing! They’re now going in my must-make collection… Thank you!
