Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Krispers

I have a good friend, Kristi, that took a challenge last year. She called it Cookie Monday. She set a goal to have fresh baked cookies for her girls every Monday when they walked in from school. And she did it!!! She made it the whole year! And now, I've decided to take the challenge myself! The first Monday snuck up on me so I just used a bag of oatmeal cookie mix from the cupboard & added butterscotch chips to the batter (YUMMY!). But this past Monday I was a little more prepared and I made one of my favorites - Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Krispers. I think I call these a different name every time I make them!! LOL Oatmeal Cocoa Crunchies is another one that comes out sometimes. Can you name them anything better?

Here are our ingredients:

Rice Krispies, oats, chocolate chips, margarine, brown sugar, white sugar, vanilla, flour, baking soda & salt.

Cream together the butter, sugars & vanilla.

Add the flour & salt.

Now get a quarter cup of boiling water & dissolve the baking soda.

Add to the creamed mixture.

Now stir in the oats, chocolate chips and cereal.

Now grab a spoon & eat the dough. It's totally OK - there are no raw eggs in there!

MMmmmm...... COOKIE MONDAY! How I love theeeeeeee.

Oh, wait - I guess we should cook these.

If you choose that road, heat the oven to 350, drop them onto a cookie sheet & bake for about 10 minutes. Be sure you don't over cook them!

Here they are - not the greatest picture, but they sure are good!
