  1. Oh! Like a smores cookie...need a big cold glass of milk, PLEASE!

  2. I don't see it listed in the recipe, so how many chocolate chips do you use?

  3. Hi Anonymous,
    I think you may have missed it, The 1 cup of milk chocolate chips is listed right after the cereal, in the ingredient list, and appears in the method after the cereal addition. I hope you will try these cookies, they are delicious! Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a special week.

    Are there chocolate chips in the topping? Love the idea of cayenne!

  5. Hi Allison,
    I fixed it...and thank you for asking, I didn't complete the line. It is 1/2 cup of milk chocolate chips for the topping. We used this topping on some Ice Cream the other night, oh my goodness it was so good. Thanks for stopping by and have a special week!

  25. Miz Helen,
    Please assure me about the cayenne pepper part... I have bad memories of cayenne pepper. I'm afraid it will wreck the cookie...

  26. Hi There,
    Is the "1/14 cups crispy rice cereal" in the ingredient list supposed to be 1 and 1/4 cups???
    Thanks! I can hardly wait to get started.

  27. Hi to Anonymous "afraid it will wreck the cookie"
    I totally understand about the use of cayenne pepper in any recipe and you are right it could wreck the cookie if you get to much. This is a very very mild kick and only made it better. You might try half of the cayenne and see what that is like for you and you can always increase it next time. Let me know how they turn out for you. Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoy your cookies!

  28. oops! You are exactly right, it is 1 1/4 cups. I sure am glad you caught that for me. I know you are excited to get started on you cookies.
    Happy Cooking
    Miz Helen
