Chocolate Peanut Butter Cap’n Crunch Cookies

So, you know that I love chocolate, right? Well, so does my mom! It’s all her fault…I mean- THANKS MOM!!!

We have this annoying  crazy habit of searching out new chocolate items. Chocolate Chex Mix, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites candy (which IMO are gross), Coconut M&M’s…if it’s got chocolate in it or on it, we are buying it!

Recently my mom gave me a box of NEW! Cap’n Crunch’s Chocolatey Crunch cereal. The pieces are so small! I don’t remember Cap’n Crunch being that tiny. Anyways, as I am not a big cereal with milk fan (I prefer to eat it dry), and it doesn’t get eaten very quickly, I decided to bake with it. Yup…pretty much anything can be tossed into cookie dough! Add some peanut butter and…wait for it…CHOCOLATE CHIPS, and you have a pretty good cookie! This combination also works well for many cupcakes, see cupcake ideas here.
