This cookie has a sweet and chewy outside and a crispy inside. Truly the best of both worlds! It is loaded with chocolate chips, coconut, oats, and rice krispies. After researching the history of the cookie, many variations have been done to this cookie, but I just stuck to the original recipe minus the nuts (my kids hate nuts in their cookies) and they turned out fantastic!
Please also try my other amazing cookies such as lotus biscoff stuffed cookies, chewy and crispy dark chocolate cookies, and amazing pastel unicorn cookies.
