A special thanks to Kellogg’s for some of today’s recipe ingredients.
During the month of June, I will be participating in the Kellogg’s Cereal Chef Challenge. Throughout the month I will be rethinking cereal and creating recipes incorporating different Kellogg’s cereals. But this isn’t a challenge just for me, y’all! We want to see what cereal-inspired recipes you come up with too!
To start things off, I totally skipped to the end of the meal with these “Krispie” Chocolate Chip Cookies! These are very similar to a traditional chocolate chip cookie, except they have a little snap, crackle and pop going on! They are a bit “krispie” on the outside and soft on the inside!
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 stick unsalted butter
- 1 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 1/2 cups Kellogg's Rice Krispies Cereal
Using cereal in a cookie recipe is definitely a first for me, but I’m thrilled with how it turned out. I added a little more brown sugar than I normally would and I love the way it gives the outside of the cookie a nice little crunch as you are biting into it. Since I’m not a fan of hard cookies, I love that the center of the cookie remained soft and oh so tasty.
If you want to showcase your own cereal-inspired recipes using Kellogg’s products, please feel free to link up in the comments below. I would love to see what you come up with. If you are sharing on Twitter, use the hashtag #CerealChef so that I can see your lovely creations. I have a few more recipes up my sleeve and will be sharing them throughout the month.
