Feature: Chocolate Chip Rice Krispie Treats - the Classic with a Twist

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
