Nutty Chocolate Chip Cereal Cookies

I got a new cookbook!  (I know, like I need it, right?)  It’s called “101 Things to do with Chocolate” by Stephanie Ashcraft.  I have several of her “101 Things to do with” cookbooks and I like and use them all frequently.  These were for my friend Jenn who recently lost her dad.  I never know what to do for people in those situations so I just do what I do best, bake for them.

2/3 cup butter flavored shortening (I’m not a huge fan of shortening so I went with butter here)

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

2 eggs

1 chocolate cake mix

1 cup crispy rice cereal

1 cup white, semisweet or milk chocolate chips (I used 1/3 cup of each)

1/2 cup chopped nuts (I usually leave the nuts out when I make things for people just in case someone is allergic)

Preheat oven to 350.

Blend shortening and brown sugar together.  Beat in eggs one at a time and then stir in cake mix.  With a spoon, stir in cereal, chocolate chips and nuts.  Drop heaping teaspoons of dough onto a lightly greased baking sheet.  Bake 9 – 12 minutes or until tops looked cracked.  Do not over bake.  Cool 2 – 3 minutes on baking sheet before removing.

(I got about 3 dozen cookies from this recipe.)
