Midnight Snack: Frosted Flakes®-Chocolate Chip-Marshmallow Cookies Recipe

Disclosure 1

You might remember that over the summer, I headed up to NYC for the Kellogg’s Recharge Bar, which featured elevated cereal and milk breakfast combinations (think lemon zest and thyme in your cereal – read more about it HERE). However, I missed the last night when the Recharge Bar was transformed into a nighttime, living room atmosphere and swapped the more traditional breakfast cereals for some indulgent treats and evening snacking options by the uber talented, Chef Christina Tosi of milkbar.

One of the treats served during the event were these decadent Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes®-Chocolate Chip-Marshmallow Cookies that Chef Christina Tosi created for the Recharge Bar. They are to.die.for. I know because I just re-created them at home and I’m sad to say…24 hours later they are all gone.

This cookie recipe has Frosted Flakes that have first been baked, which almost caramelizes the cereal. Um…honestly, I could have eaten a bowl of just the baked Frosted Flakes! When incorporated into the cookies, it gives them a delicious caramel flavor.

But you know what? While I love to whip up tasty sweet treats in my kitchen, I don’t always have the time or honestly…my waistline can’t take it. That’s why I love cereal. I have been enjoying cereal as an after-dinner treat for years! I love grabbing a small bowl of Kellogg’s Froot Loops or my new fave – Kellogg’s Krave, which I eat without milk – straight out of the bag. It’s really that good. It’s the perfect crunchy treat to have when watching a movie or when your sweet tooth attacks and you don’t want to blow your days calories on a bowl of ice cream or a dozen chocolate chip cookies lol!
