Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Place chocolate chips in a small microwave safe bowl. Heat for 1 minute. Stir. Continue heating for 10 second intervals, stirring inbetween, until completely melted. Set aside to cool slightly.

Place cereal in a large zip lock bag and crush into tiny pieces with a rolling pin.

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt.

In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together sugar and butter/margarine/vegetable shortening, until fluffy.

Add eggs and vanilla. Mix for at least 3 minutes.

Gradually add the flour mixture and combine thoroughly.

Stir in the crushed cereal.

Gently fold in the melted chocolate, leaving ribbons of chocolate throughout the dough.

Scoop 2 tablespoon sized (golf ball) balls of dough and place on the prepared baking sheet, at least 2 inches apart.

Bake for 10-12 minutes. (Slightly under-baking is recommended for long distance care packages.)

Remove cookies from baking sheet to cool on wire racks.

Store at room temperature in an airtight container for at least 1 week. Cookies will get crunchier over time.
