I really wanted to make cookies with rice krispie cereal because people kept doing searches for it and coming to my cookie butter rice krispie treats. Because I do not wish to disappoint, I wanted to make sure I have a recipe to satisfy this need. I did some research first and discovered that rice krispies can be added to pretty much any cookie, and they just make the cookies chewier. To add to the rice krispie treat connection, I decided to bring out a Momofuku Milk Bar recipe I used before. After checking my blog, I realized I had never posted about these cookies before, so here you go! I did make some changes since I have made them before and had a better idea of what I wanted. Some of my cookies overbaked a bit, so that is why I said to start checking them much sooner. The cookies will harden a bit as they cool, so err on the side of underbaking.
These are super chewy and gooey with the mix-ins. It’s a pretty simple recipe as far as the Milk Bar stuff goes. Feel free to customize with different cereals. I decided to stick with some cornflakes that were called for in the original recipe, but you could go all in with a different cereal to try it. If you do, I’d love to hear what you use, and how it turns out!
