The cereal aisle is overwhelming.
Like, holy shit, have you noticed there are 27 different versions of Honey Nut Cheerios, 14 versions of Rice Krispies, and 23 versions of Captain Crunch? How does one decide? Decisions are the worst! Name that movie.
After I spent probably a good 35 minutes marinating in the cereal aisle mumbling out loud the pros and cons of whether I should go with Golden Grahams or Cinnamon Toast Crunch, I realized, I am creating a line in front of the Cocoa Krispies. So, I panicked, grabbed a box of Cocoa Krispies, arrived home, looked at the box, and said, “WTF.” I had cereal remorse.
Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Cocoa Krispies, but it’s not an “everyday” cereal like Cinnamon Toast Crunch or Golden Grahams. Am I right? I will give Cocoa Krispies mad props for making the milk sipping an extra chocolatey experience. So, as I stared at the box, I thought about what I could make with these Krispies. First thought, make rice krispie treats! Meh. Second thought, could I put this on chicken? Um, that’s weird even for me. Finally, I thought, heck, why not make some cookies?
I haven’t made cookies since 2009. Okay, not really, but the thought that yours truly even wanted to make cookies is the equivalent of me attending the Black Yeast for Bakers Twelve Step program. Anyways, these cookies are the bomb diggity. Two kinds of chips, one of them chocolate, one of them being peanut butter…ahem, ahem. Folded into butter, sugar, more butter, and finally Cocoa Krispies. It’s a sugar fest win!
So, next time you are in the cereal aisle, grab a random box and make these cookies. Cereal remorse be gone!
