The original recipe of these cookies appeared on 29 Ways to Honor Peanut Butter & Jelly in the form of Peanut Butter & Jelly Potato Chip Thumbprint Cookies thanks to Spoon Fork Bacon. I misread this recipe the first time through. I thought the potato chips were mixed into the dough (yum!), but turns out, the cookies are rolled in crushed chips (yum!). In the end, I adapted this recipe and went for mixing in the crunchiness and I opted for brown rice cereal because potato chips – or rather their oil content – scare me.
