Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

I loved my children's literature class in college. Not surprising since this has become one of my passions as a teacher.  My professor was inspiring and fun.  He wanted us to develop our own love of reading so that we could model it for our students.  One day towards the end of the semester, his wife brought us cookies and milk and shared this recipe with us. 

I really love that these have Rice Krispies in them.  The texture is so great.  This last time I made them I used Trader Joe's mini peanut butter cups instead of chocolate chips and they were amazing. 

WARNING:  Do not over bake.  Cookies, in my opinion, should never be crunchy.  It's okay if they look a little gooey when you take them out of the oven.  Leave them on the pan for a bit and they will continue to cook and be soft and chewy and delicious.
