Do you still get a kick out of your breakfast cereal making those popping noises? When you bite into one of these Crispy Crunchies you'll get to experience all that crunch you love, along with a great chocolate taste!

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 (5-ounce) crisped-rice chocolate candy bars, coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup crispy rice cereal

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, with an electric mixer on medium speed, beat the sugars and butter until well blended. Add the egg and vanilla and continue to beat until light and fluffy. Add flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt and blend well at medium speed. With a spoon, stir in candy bar chunks and cereal, just until combined.
  3. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake 16 to 18 minutes, or until edges are browned. Remove cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Isn't 3/4 cup butter equal to 1-1/2 stick butter? Please correct your recipe with the correct amount of butter required.

Thanks for catching that! We've gone ahead and corrected the recipe.

This sounds so good, because I like the Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats. Since this has the chocolate crisp cereal candy bars, I am sure we will like it just as well.
