Rice Crispie Cookies

Yes, rice crispies COOKIES, and yes, this is the 3rd batch of cookies I have made this week! We have had quite the sweet tooth at our house lately...we better calm it down or we will put on quite a bit of weight! Mom wonderful momma introduced me to these delicious little gems. They are basically just a chocolate chip cookie dough, but instead of chocolate chips, you add rice crispies. They have the perfect 'crunch' that makes you go back for more...careful, they are hard to put down!

Do you have to use wheat flour or is it optional?
