Classy Chocolate Chip Cookies

A classy spin on a classic childhood favorite. Best if enjoyed warm out of the oven, with a glass of milk.


Let’s Get Started:

2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature*
¾ cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon sea salt
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 cup chocolate chips or chopped Ghiradelli chocolate bar
1 cup chocolate Rice Krispies*


Let’s Get Cookin’:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour and baking
soda; set aside. In a bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the butter with both sugars; beat on medium speed until light and fluffy. Reduce speed to low; add the salt, vanilla, and eggs. Beat until well mixed for about 1 minute or so. Add flour mixture; mix until just combined. Stir
in the chocolate chips and Rice Krispies by hand.

Use a tablespoon to scoop and drop small balls of dough about 2 inches apart on baking sheets lined with wax or parchment paper.

Bake until cookies are golden around the edges, but still soft in the center, 8-12 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool on baking sheet 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack, and let cool completely.


Let’s Get Creative:

– Make sure the butter is room temperature… the cookies will turn out much better if you wait an extra few minutes for it to warm up!
– The Rice Krispies add an extra crunch to the cookies. If you prefer a more classic recipe, add another cup of chocolate chips instead!
– This is a big weekend for the United States! NYC is hosting a Pride parade today and it is sure to be crazy with excitement. If you can’t be there but want to show your support, add some rainbow M&M’s into the mix instead of regular chocolate chips!

Enjoy! Stay classy! xx
