Cornflake Rice Krispie Chocolate Chip Marshmallow Cookies

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.

Better!

Better!

A little too dark.

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!

On low, mix in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and instant coffee.

I added some of this Trader Joe grinder stuff because it sounded fun.

This should take about a minute. Stir in the chocolate chips and marshmallows, then the cereal crunch.

On prepared baking sheets (I needed 4), scoop the dough into cookies as big as you like. I preferred the smaller ones (about 2 Tablespoons). Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight (or at least a couple hours).

When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 375 degrees. If you are baking the smaller cookies, start checking the cookies around 9 minutes.

The smaller size...

The smaller size…

You want them to be lightly browned in the middle, and darker on the edges. Cool them completely before serving.

My first batch overbaked a bit, and I decided I didn't want them this big.

These were much better!

These smaller ones were much better, and I knew to cook them for less time!
