Feature: Chocolate Chip Rice Krispie Treats - Perfect for Lunches

Chocolate Chip Rice Krispie Treats are an easy variation to the classic homemade Rice Krispie Treats recipe.

This version includes a twist: miniature chocolate chips added to both the cereal mixture before it sets and then pressed into the surface of the cookies.

You can also add a cup of unsweetened shredded coconut to the mixture.

The coconut is optional – but it’s really, really good. It makes the treats taste like Mounds® candy bars.

Prep time: 5 minutes
Set time: 15-30 minutes
Makes about 20-24 cookies

Get Organized for Fall

I’m all about finding simple ways to spend time on what matters and eliminate the stuff I don’t need to do. Since you’re a Cookie Elf reader, I bet you feel the same.

Summer is here. And you feel like you’re disorganized … if you don’t know what to do with the kids … if you feel overwhelmed with junk …

Here’s some news that is a relief. Jane organized her home and her stuff in 7 days. She had to when she moved from Canada to Australia! When she figured out to streamline everything, it made a huge difference for her. It can for you too. Check out how you can drop your clutter and feel the relief in time for summer. More info.
