Chocolate Chip Crispy Cookies

If you are like me and have a stash of free or nearly free cereal through couponing or CVS, here is a great recipe for you! I actually got this recipe long before I started my adventure in aggressive money saving. I was a technology teacher and the home economics teacher was always having bake-offs with her students. Her classroom was across from mine. As teachers, we got to sample the finished products and vote on the winners. This was one of them that I liked so much that I got the recipe. It just so happens that one of the main ingredients is Rice Krispies.

Chocolate Chip Crispy Cookies

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup margarine, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups crisp rice cereal
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1 In small mixing bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
2 In large mixing bowl, beat together margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla. Beat well. Add flour mixture, mixing until combined. Stir in Rice Krispies cereal and chocolate chips .
3 Drop by level tablespoons onto cookie sheets coated with vegetable spray.
4 Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) about 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove immediately from cookie sheets and cool on wire racks. Allow to cool before eating for crispness. Store in airtight container

Thanks for this! I have 3 boxes of Rice Krispies that I need to find a use for. Not to mention TONS of chocolate chips from the Nestle deal at Kroger awhile back...
