I had these chocolate rice (sprinkles) and they have been sitting in the cabinet waiting to be used. The perfect use for them was included these in baking. So these cookies were created and they looked like such an interesting variation of them.
As usual, I had used only a quarter cup of sugar but this is entirely up to you, add more if you want them sweeter.
These cookies are chewy, just the way I like them, sweet but not overly so and have the slight hint of chocolate from the sprinkles. They never last long around our house!
