Rice Krispie Chocolate Chip Cookies

Christmas is in one day!  I think Santa would love a plate of these, waiting for him.  Our five year old son, Landon, has been counting down the days.  Did you know?  Santa, loves every cookie in the world!  Just wanted to sare that fact with you. 

 Some people have that creepy little elf on the shelf, in thier homes. We have a cute little reindeer, that came from the North Pole.  Landon, loves to look for him every morining!  Sometimes that little reindeer would be lazy and not move from his spot, the night before.  And I have to think of an anwser, as to why he didn’t move.  Um, maybe he was really tired and needed a break?   Or, he has a tummy ache?    Anyway, it’s fun to see how excited Landon gets, when he finds the little reindeer.  It’s all about the kids and making them smile!  

This morning Landon woke up to a special gift!  Santa’s reindeer helper wrote a nice letter and left a present for Landon to open.  Landon was so happy and of course..can’t wait until Christmas!   Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas!

 Well…with these rice krispie chocolate chip cookies, you get some whole wheat goodness and less sugar.  The cookies also baked up thick.  Landon was happy to find one of these cookies in his school lunch.   

Rice Krispie Chocolate Chip Cookies – About 3 dozen (1 Tablespoon cookies)

  • 1 stick of butter – melted
  • 1/3 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/8 cup of sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup rice krispies
  • 1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips


STEP ONE:  Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.  In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the melted butter and sugars.  Add in the vanilla, egg yolk and egg, whisk together well.  Add the salt, baking soda and one cup of flour to the mixture, combine well.  Pour in the second cup of flour and mix until combined.  Stir in the rice krispies and milk chocolate chips.  

STEP TWO: Scoop out one heaping Tablespoon of dough for each cookie, onto baking sheet.  Bake in preheated oven for 9 – 10 minutes.  Cookies will not flatten out, they will stay thick after baked.  Allow to cool for a few minutes and remove to a wire rack to fully cool.

Note: You can press on additional chocolate chips to the tops of cookie dough balls, before baking.  I did this to the cookies in the pictures.
