Default Chocolate Chip Crunchy cookies

My teen daughter needed to bring a snack to a friends gathering. Of course a half hour before we leave I remember this. So I threw together what I had on hand and came up with this. After a search I saw others had similar recipes. I did borrow the image of the finished product. I was in such a hurry to leave that I forgot to take a picture. The girls loved the cookies. A big hit! The corn flakes really ad an interesting crunch to it.

My big helper. Though when you are in a hurry it is sometimes better to do it yourself. But she just loves to help me cook so I let her help me anyway.



Crunchy Chocolate Cookies

Bake at 375* for 10-12 min.
3 1/2 cups All-purpose flour
3 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Salt
1 cup butter
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon milk
2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup vegetable oil
1 cup corn flakes
1 cup quick oats
1 (12 oz) pkg. chocolate chips
1/2 Marshmallow cream

Sift the flour, salt and soda onto wax paper. Beat butter and sugars until well creamed. Combine egg, vanilla and oil in a small bowl. Alternately add the oil mixture and the flour mixture to the creamed sugars. Mix until just combined. Stir in the corn flakes, oats and chocolate. Drop by heaping teaspoons onto cookie sheets, 2 inches apart. Bake until golden.

Great recipe. They look good. Do you think it would work to use rice krispies instead of corn flakes?

What is the marshmallow cream for?

Thanks for posting this.

Yeah does the marshmallow cream get added with the rest of the wet ingredients? Sounds interesting. Never seen a cookie recipe with marshmallow cream. So do the corn flakes get soggy, or do they actually stay crisp? I once tried a muffin recipe that called for corn flakes..wait, actually, it was honey bunches of oats! They came out soggy and NASTY! But muffin batter is a lot more wet than cookie dough..hmm..

I thought corn flakes tastes a bit salty to be added with chocolate cookie recipe. But I guess I was wrong since your recipe was as you've said a hit to the kids. I have to try it next time and see how will it fair with my kids. Custom Fortune Cookies

Because it Rice Krispies would work, I have all the ingredients.
1/2 What of marshmallow cream? Half a cup, or half a jar? If it is half the jar, how much is that in case our jars are different sizes.......

now I want cookies.......

Oh my gosh. I just took a better look at this recipe.
A cup of butter and a cup of oil! I just figured out the weight watcher's points on this. If I get 3 dozen cookies out of this recipe, and if I use Rice Krispies, that makes each cookie worth 5 points. (a whole dinner is usually 7-9)
I'm going to be skipping these. They would be undoubtedly very rich, but I don't want to stall my progress.

I like the pic of your daughter licking the spoon. I tend to make cookies when the kids are not home so I can do that!
