They're GRRRRRR-eat!

In my pinterest browsing, I found a recipe for frosted flakes cookies.  Hmmm...sounds interesting.  And, David just so happened to have some chocolate frosted flakes that he wasn't so fond of.  So, I decided to try it out. 

Now, I've made cereal cookies before using rice krispies, and they were really good.  What's to say these would be different?  In the end, I will be honest and say they weren't my favorite but mostly because I couldn't really tell the cereal was there!  The cereal ended up just sort of blending in...but it was a good cookie despite that.  Try for your self!

Chocolate Frosted Flakes Cookies from Picky Palate
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
  • 6 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 6 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup chocolate Frosted Flakes Cereal
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Cream butter and sugars in stand mixer until well combined, about 2 minutes. Add egg and vanilla beating to combine. Slowly add flour, salt, baking soda and pudding mix. Place 1 cup of cereal into a ziploc bag, zip it closed and crush cereal by rolling over with a rolling pin until finely ground. Add crushed cereal to bowl mixing to combine. Add white chips stirring to combine. With a medium cookie scoop, place dough 1 inch apart from each other on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until baked through. Remove from oven and let cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes before transferring. Serve and enjoy!
