  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, stir butter, peanut butter and egg until blended. Stir in cookie mix until soft dough forms. Stir in candies and cereal, breaking cereal apart as dough is stirred.
  • 2
    Onto ungreased cookie sheets, drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 3 inches apart.
  • 3
    Bake 11 to 13 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool at least 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheets. Cool completely before storing in airtight container.

Expert Tips

  • Make clean-up easier by using parchment paper over your cookie sheet when baking. Make sure your cookie tray is cool before scooping out the next batch of dough. For best results bake with one tray at a time placed in the middle of the rack.
  • Make sure to store these cookies in an airtight container. Gluten-free treats tend to dry out quickly if left out.
  • When baking gluten-free treats to share with others, keep them on their own labeled plate away from other food with gluten in them.
  • We love Betty Crocker™ Gluten Free chocolate chip cookie mix. We love finding new uses for this delicious mix or just baking the cookies as is. Try this recipe for Gluten-Free Cookie Brownie Bars or this recipe for Gluten-Free Pumpkin Chocolate-Chip Cookies that both start with the same delicious gluten-free cookie mix.
  • Cooking Gluten Free? Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
