Got some extra rice crispy cereal hanging around? chocolate chips? well this is the cookie for you!  These crunchy jumbles are crispy cookies.  i made them last christmas in a batch of cookies (along with gingerbread fellows and pecan puffs). They were like crispy chocolate chip cookies…so good :) now i didn’t take a picture when i actually made them.. :(  back then i didn’t think i’d be making a blog.  so please excuse me as the attached pic is from the book i got the recipe from. but i promise you they totally look like this only in 3D :)
