Sweet, salty, creamy, crunchy goodness.

For summer, the weather in these parts of town have been straight trippin ( don’t even ask me what that was, and why I said it)

It’s been perfect for movie marathon weekends, filled with junk food, popcorn and baking.

Sooo … I guess I have a thing with cookies.

But I also have a things with sprinkles … they’re sooo sprinkly and make me so happy. I need a little cheering up the temperature and weather outside is just straight up cray-cray for April. As I type this, it’s hailing!
HAIL?!? Mother nature, I want sunshine – I want to wear new sunglasses, open toe sandals ( note :get a pedi) and flowy dresses.

Mother nature, stop being a mother – heh- or I’ll throw sprinkles at you.

And because I’ve already made these funfetti cookies, I only did the most natural thing and added cereal to the mix.

 Hola, fruitloops. I remember growing up, watching care bears – saved by the bell and hello the entire TGIF line up with a big box of fruitloops by my side – just munching away.

Next take 1 of each dough ball and combine, making a larger ball.

Chill dough for at least 2 hours, on your cookie sheet ( overnight is best, but 2 hours will do).

Preheat oven to 350F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

Bake chilled cookie dough for 10 minutes. Allow to cool on cookie tray for at least 2 minutes, before placing on a wire rack to cool completely.
