Chocolate Heart Cap’n Crunch Cream Cheese Cookies

Yup, you read that right. 

There is Cap’n Crunch cereal in these cookies. And cream cheese. And they’re topped off with a chocolate heart.

*pfoof*

That’s the sound of minds being blown, people.

These cookies have cream cheese and Cap'n Crunch cereal in them and are topped off with a chocolate heart. Perfect for Valentine's Day, or any day!

Cap’n Crunch is one of my favorite cereals ever. I got some all for myself for the boys last week, and as I was having some, I was trying to come up with a lengthy list of all the things I could possibly put them in. Naturally, the first thing that came to mind was cookies. 

So I got to work.

And holy moly, these puppies are good.

The Cap’n Crunch gives them a nice, sweet flavor, and the cream cheese makes them amazingly soft.

See those little golden specks in there? Yeah, Cap’n Crunch. 

The next time I make these, I probably would leave off the chocolate heart, but that’s just because I’m not a huge chocolate person. But for Valentine’s Day, I don’t think you can get much cuter.
