Someone reminded me of this recipe and it was perfect for a small get together we hosted. I actually made it twice because the first time my marshmallows were too old. It really did matter because I made the recipe the same way and the first time it became hard as a rock and was inedible. The second time it was perfect. So, make sure your marshmallows are still soft and fluffy (even though you’re melting them, the texture beforehand matters).
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!
I usually dread typing out the recipes for these posts. Remembering each amount and making sure I don’t have any typos (1 teaspoon of salt versus 1 Tablespoon of salt could make a big difference in a dessert) is not the fun part. It is not hard and I like having the record, but I would much rather be spending my time making the food than writing it out. As a result, I end up writing my description and/or story first before the recipe. Well, this time I could not think of anything to say and did the recipe first, then the pictures, and now I am still not sure what to say! I do know that these brownies are something you must make. They turn out amazing every time and are a big hit with chocolate fans. You can choose to eat just the brownie part separate from the treat on top, or get all of the flavors in one bite. I found a version of this recipe from an old cookbook that was all about using Hershey-branded products. So, instead of using cocoa powder, you would see “use Hershey cocoa powder”. Of course, you can use whatever chocolate you like in this.
I am hoping that even with few words you will still be inspired to make this.
