Feature: Crispy Valentine Cookies: Dress Up an Easy Drop Cookie for Your Valentine

Crispy Valentine Cookies: I love this simple drop cookie recipe dressed up with two kinds of chocolate (white chocolate chips and chocolate-covered candies).

And the cookie dough has two kinds of crispy cereal (oatmeal and Rice Krispies) which makes me think, "These are healthier than just any old drop cookie."

When they come out of the oven, I dress them up by pressing chocolate covered candies (M & M's) onto the surfaces.

Tip: press the candies into the soft cookies firmly and they'll take, rather than fall out later.

Prep time: 15 minutes
Bake time: 10-12 minutes
Makes about 4 dozen cookies
