Sweet Melissa Sunday...

Welcome to another Sweet Melissa Sunday. I did not bake this week due to the fact that I have been on a girls scrapbooking weekend since Thursday and just didn't have the time. Plus, the recipe was carrot cake and i'm not a big fan of carrot cake. No offense to all those carrot cake lovers, it's just not for me!

But, instead I have a very easy cookie recipe for you. The other week I asked my son...If you could pick anything for me to bake, what would it be?? He looked at me a little funny and said...anything??? Like anything in the world?? So I told him to narrow it down to treats and he got this HUGE grin on his face, raced over to my cookbooks and took out my The Great Big Cookie Book cookbook. He poured over this book for about an hour until deciding on Crunchy Jumbles. I had never baked them or heard of them! But after looking at the recipe, I realized they are just chocolate chip cookies with rice krispies. So...I baked them for him!


I had all the ingredients, even the rice krispies. The recipe is basically a regular chocolate chip cookies with less flour and 1 cup of rice krispies. They turned out pretty good, nice a crunchy and chocolatey.


Everybody in the family liked them, my son especially since I made them at his request. I think he thought they were a bit better just for that reason. And I found he bookmarked about 5 other cookie recipes for me to make in the future. I like how he's thinking ahead!


Thanks for stopping by! Have a Sweet Sunday!!

Hope you had a fun time! Those look and sound yummy! My kids don't like rice krispies (I know, what's wrong with them??!!). But, I sometimes make rice krispie treats anyway and my hubby and I eat them!
