  • 1 cup butter melted and cooled
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar light or dark
  • 2 large eggs at room temperature and beaten
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 4 cups Rice Krispie cereal
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 2 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • Melt butter and allow to cool to room temperature
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine butter and sugars. Mix until combined. Add eggs one at a time and mix until they are incorporated. Stir in vanilla extract.
  • Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl.
  • Slowly add the flour mixture to the egg and sugar mixture
  • Stir in coconut, chocolate chips, dried cranberries, and cereal by hand until evenly distributed. 
  • At this point, you can either scoop into balls and place on a baking sheet. The baking sheet needs to fit in the refrigerator. OR, you can refrigerate the dough in the bowl and scoop out after the dough is chilled.
  • After the dough is chilled, bake cookies at 350 degrees F for 10 to 12 minutes or until the desired level of doneness. I like crispy edges with soft centers. For 1.5 tablespoons of dough, I cook for 12 minutes.
