Tasty Tuesday: Fair Trade Chocolate Chip Rice Krispie Treat Cookies

These are amazing! I have tried a lot of different variations of fair trade chocolate chip cookies these past several months for Tasty Tuesday recipes so I feel I know a really great cookie when I eat one! As of right now, the Rice Krispies Treat Cookie featured in this posting and the Buttered Fair Trade Popcorn Chocolate Chip Cookies from a few months back are my favorites. The popcorn and the rice krispies add a little unusual texture and the taste is magnificent! This week’s recipe is very simple and was a big hit amongst my family (and incidentally, even three months later friends ask when I am making the popcorn cookies again).
