I made these cookies for The Boy's class during December. They were, I heard, a hit. The rice krispies add some nice texture and crunch, and you cannot go wrong with M&M's in a cookie.
When I was a kid my mom would occasionally make Smarties Cookies. I absolutely loved them and they are one of those childhood food memories you never forget. A couple of years ago I asked my mom for a copy of the recipe - she couldn't find it, but said she was sure it was just a standard chocolate chip recipe that she swapped in smarties for the chips.
My brain remembers them differently, but these are pretty good too.
Maybe one day my kids will be making these for their kids.....
