Wahoo, it’s Thursday already!! Hope everyone is having a great week 🙂
Does everyone else have kids who BEG for all the sugary cereal like mine do?! It is a constant battle with my two 🙂 We don’t buy it all the time, but I caved in last week and picked up some good ol’ Cap’n Crunch. Before my boys devoured the entire box within a day, I created a cookie with bits of Cap’n Crunch inside! Can I just say these are so crazy good. I typically get rid of all my goodies after I sample, but holy cow I had at least a half dozen of these. I love the little crispy bits of Cap’n Crunch in each bite of cookie. Just wait till you try these 🙂
Hope you all enjoy!!
