Fruit Loops Chocolate Cookies

Do you remember what your FAVORITE cereal was, as a kid?

I think mine used to be Fruit Loops or maybe Trix.

Hmmmm….

All I remember is that the more COLORFUL the cereal was, the more LIKELY I was to eat it..lol 😉

I got a box of Fruit loops last month, thinking that my little one would love them too.

He DIDN’T really care for them…Sighs 🙁

But he ENJOYS using them in crafts and they have been very HELPFUL in teaching him colors and sorting! 😀

Anyways, I was doing some midnight cookie baking yesterday and I thought it would be FUN to make Fruit Loops chocolate cookies.

I was a little worried that the Fruit Loops might become soggy and icky but that didn’t happen at all… YAY!

These cookies turned out to be very rich and CHOCO-LICIOUS and the fruit loops added a nice crunch and a FRUITY taste.

Plus, they are so fun and COLORFUL, just like a rainbow.

I think these would be PERFECT for St.Patrick’s day or even a rainbow themed birthday party! 😀

I used my AWESOME homemade chocolate cookie recipe that’s made from scratch.

But, if you are short on time or if you like using boxed cake mixes, then you can use my chocolate cake mix cookies recipe and just roll the cookie dough balls in crushed Fruit Loops… EASY PEEZY and just as delicious!

fruit loops chocolate cookies 7To make these Fruit Loops chocolate cookies, you will need the following ingredients:

2 1/4 cups flour
1 1/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 cup butter
2 large eggs
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp almond extract
1 cup chocolate chips (you can add more, if you like!)
2 cups roughly chopped Fruit Loops

And here are the steps:

Step 1:
In a mixing bowl, add butter and sugar.
Cream the butter and sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy

Step 2:
Add eggs and extracts and mix again.

Step 3:
Add cocoa powder and mix again.

Step 4:
Add flour (1/2 cup at a time) and mix until everything is just combined.

Step 5:
Now, add the chocolate chips.
At this point, I like to just use my hands to knead the dough and make sure everything is thoroughly combined.
The dough will be very thick but don’t worry… that’s the way it’s supposed to be 🙂

Step 6:
Make balls of this dough and roll them on a tray filled with crushed Fruit loops.
You will have to really press the cookie dough balls into the Fruit Loops so that they stick to the cookies

Note:
If the dough is very crumbly and you are having a hard time making balls, then add a little milk (1 tbsp at a time) and knead the dough again.

Step 7:
Place these Fruit Loop covered chocolate cookie dough balls on a cookie tray lined with parchment paper.

Step 8:
Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.

And you are done!
