Fruit Loops Chocolate Cookies

These fruit loops chocolate cookies have a rich chocolate flavor with a fruity and crunchy top. Easy recipe & great for rainbow parties or St.Patrick’s day.

I was doing some midnight baking yesterday and 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 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!

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!

Ingredients

  • cups All-purpose flour
  • cups Granulated sugar
  • ½ cup Cocoa powder
  • 1 cup Butter Unsalted
  • 2 Eggs Large
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp Almond extract
  • 1 cup Chocolate chips You can add more, if you like!
  • 2 cups Fruit Loops Roughly chopped

Instructions

  1. In a mixing bowl, add butter and sugar. Cream the butter and sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy
  2. Add eggs and extracts and mix again.
  3. Add cocoa powder and mix again.
  4. Add flour (1/2 cup at a time) and mix until everything is just combined.
  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
  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
  7. Place these Fruit Loop covered chocolate cookie dough balls on a cookie tray lined with parchment paper.
  8. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

- 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.
