These chewy crowd-pleasers from Connie Craig of Lakewood, Washington feature all sorts of goodies, including chocolate chips, raisins, coconut and candy-coated baking bits. For a more colorful look, press the baking bits on top of the bars instead of stirring them into the cereal mixture.
Crispy rice treats were one of the first recipes I ever made as a kid. For this version, I wanted to make something similar but more special. Friends and family think using Cap'n Crunch in and browned butter is genius, but I just call them delicious.—Kelly Krauss, Lebanon, New Jersey
My daughter works at a summer camp, so I send treats. Instead of a cookie jar we use a coffee can and call it the Wrangler Feeding Trough. Everyone asks for this cookie. —Sue Klemm, Rhinelander, Wisconsin
You'll want to keep these festive cookies on hand for when holiday company arrives. The rich chocolate wafers are the perfect complement to the creamy filling's sweet-tart tones. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen
