Rice Krispie Chocolate Chip Cookies are soft, chewy and have a little extra crunch! Adding rice krispie cereal to chocolate chip cookies is such a good idea – you’ll never want to eat them without that extra addition again!
I love chocolate chip cookies. I make a lot of treats, but I think my favorite is still just good ol’ chocolate chip cookies. Warm, straight out of the oven, of course! I’ve never added rice krispies to my chocolate chip cookies before, but I saw another cookie recipe that had rice krispies listed as an ingredient so I decided to try it out.
The rice krispies really don’t change the flavor at all, but they add a crunchiness that is absolutely incredible. I love the consistency of these cookies. The cookies are super soft, just the way I like them, but the cereal adds a little bit of crispiness that is so good!
These cookies also have oats in them which I really like too – between the oats and the rice krispies, there are a lot of textures which work so well in a cookie. I promise, you’ll love ’em too!
Ingredients in Rice Krispie Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup butter, softened to room temp
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 cups rolled oats
2 cups rice krispie cereal
1-2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
How to make Rice Krispie Chocolate Chip Cookies
Preheat oven to 350°.
Mix the flour, baking powder and baking soda together in a bowl and set aside. In a separate bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar and sugar for about 2-3 minutes with an electric mixer.
Add the eggs and vanilla and mix for 2 more minutes.
Add the flour mixture and just mix enough to combine everything. Stir in the oats, cereal and chocolate chips with a large spoon.
Use a cookie scoop to scoop the dough onto a prepared cookie sheet. Bake for 9-10 minutes or until the edges start to turn a light golden brown.
HOW DO YOU MAKE PERFECT CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES?
Making chocolate chip cookies is easy! Here are a few tips to getting perfect cookies every time!
- Make sure you use softened butter – DON’T melt it! One of the most common errors in cookie making is using butter that is either really cold and hard, or using butter that is too warm and melted. If you have time, just leave butter out on the counter for about 1-2 hours before making your cookies. If you are like me and don’t plan your cookie cravings that far in advance, just place the butter in your microwave and soften in 5 second intervals, being very careful to pull it out before it melts. I actually like to use the defrost setting on my microwave to soften butter- I don’t know the technical reasons behind it, but it seems to soften the butter more evenly and takes a little bit longer so I’m less likely to start melting it!
- Most cookie recipes require that you mix the dry ingredients separately before adding the wet ingredients. This is an important step!
- Spend a little extra time when you mix the butter and sugars. Creaming them together for 2-3 minutes will improve the consistency of your cookies.
- Preheat the oven. This will help your cookies turn out right every time!
- Use a cookie scoop! If you want all your cookies to be perfectly shaped and have them all be the same size, a cookie scoop is the way to go.
- Use parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Doing this will make it really easy to remove the cookies from your cookie sheet so that you don’t have to scrape them off the pan – they will just slide right off in perfect shape!
- Don’t over bake the cookies – when I take mine out of the oven, they still look slightly under baked but they will continue to bake on the cookie sheet for a couple more minutes so that’s ok!

This little one is getting so big. 20 months old now and talking like crazy, climbing up on everything, singing lots of songs and developing quite the personality. We are all still just as obsessed with her as ever and everything she does makes us laugh. Well, almost everything. She is starting to get into that independently stubborn, do-everything-myself phase.
One of the “silver linings” in the last few months of chaos has been that all of my other kids have been home nearly 24/7 and have gotten to spend so much time with their baby sister. This baby girl of ours has been so lucky to have so many playmates who haven’t had much else to focus on besides her. They all start school tomorrow (which still seems so surreal after being home for 5 months!) and I think it’s going to be kinda hard on little sis. She adores all of her siblings and asks where they are, even if they just leave the room for a few minutes! Being home all day with just mom to entertain her is probably going to be a bit of an adjustment. For both of us!
