Chocolate Chip Cookie Krispie Treats #SundaySupper

I’m super excited to be blogging with #SundaySupper this week! This week, we’re talking back to school. This week the kids in Baltimore are heading back to school, and college kids are getting ready to move back to school next week.

When I think of “back to school” food, I think of my elementary school lunch box. My mom packed me the same meal every day: A peanut butter and grape jelly sandwich, applesauce, a rice crispy treat, and three homemade chocolate chip cookies. And yes, they had to be mom’s. I wouldn’t eat anything else, because a cookie just isn’t a cookie if it’s not homemade. (Yes, my mother raised me to be a cookie snob. No, I don’t mind at all.)

I decided to combine two of my favorite lunchbox treats, crispy treats and chocolate chip cookies with a rice crispy treat that tastes like a chocolate chip cookie. I used a combination of butter, almond, and vanilla extracts to achieve the taste of a chocolate chip cookie that we all know and love.

Now, these don’t taste just like a chocolate chip cookie. But they’re pretty darn close. I’m sure you could use a bottle of one of those fancy syrups, but I didn’t want to spend that kind of money for just one recipe.

    Oh, these sound awesome! My mom never made homemade cookies (sorry Mom! ;), but I loved getting those huge, soft cookies they sold at my school. These sound way better though! 🙂

      I loved the big soft cookies at school too- I practically lived on those in high school when I never packed a lunch. Thanks Jennifer!

          Not at all! I’m happy you did- I didn’t proofread when I posted this because I was in a rush, so I’m glad that my mistake was caught so others won’t be confused.

    These are my idea of a bar. Nobake, chocolate, & a version on RKTreats. I love them – in any version!
