That box of Rice Krispies in your pantry is for more than just a bowl of cereal. Yes, you can make the classic Rice Krispie Squares, but why not try something a little different for a change? Whip up a batch of these yummy Rice Krispie Cookies! They are loaded with a variety of flavours and textures. Basically, you can throw whatever you have in your pantry in the mix and they should turn out great (within reason, of course!).

To mine, I added coconut, oats, Rice Krispies and some salted caramel chips. If you can’t find salted caramel chips, don’t worry. Substitute another chip like chocolate chips, butterscotch chips or even peanut butter chips. I saw the salted caramel chips while I was shopping and they were calling my name.
