crispy chocolate toffee oatmeal cookies
i feel fortunate to be a food blogger. there are so many great food bloggers and because of social media i have gotten the opportunity to get to know many of them. one of my favorite people i have gotten to know is Maria from Two Peas and their Pod
. she incredibly sweet and always fun to chat with on twitter AND that girl knows how to create an awesome cookie recipe. a while back she posted crispy chocolate oatmeal cookies
. i had to make them immediately.
i love the idea of using rice krispies in a cookie. i have adapted the recipe a bit by adding toffee and cinnamon but i think the rice krispies are what make them special. the cookie itself is crisp but the middle is still chewy. the toffee melts the perfect amount to be chewy but still hold that toffee texture i love. ever since i made crispy salted oatmeal white chocolate cookies
i have been adding a sprinkling of fleur de sel to the tops of most cookies i make. i love the slightly salty bit it gives. ingredients
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup softened unsalted butter
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup flour
1 cup oats - not instant oats
1 1/4 cups Rice Krispies cereal
1 cup english toffee bits
1 cup mini chocolate chips
fleur de sel for sprinkling on top (optional)directions
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, cinnamon, baking powder, and baking soda. Combine butter and sugars in your mixing bowl. Beat until smooth. On low, add in egg and vanilla extract. Beat until combined.
Slowly add in the dry ingredients. Stir in the oats, chocolate chips, and cereal. Don't over mix. You don't want to crush the cereal too much.
Scoop dough into balls and place on a cookie sheet lined with Silpats or parchment. I sprinkled the tops with a bit of fleur de sel. Bake for 10-12 minutes (mine took 10 minutes)
Allow to cool for a minute on the baking sheet. Move to a cooling rack and enjoy. I think they are better the next day.
makes about 2 dozen cookies
