How to make chocolate chip cookie cereal

Bake the cookies on a lined baking sheet for about 5 to 8 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove them from the oven when you reach your desired color and doneness. I personally like to take them out when they start to brown around the edges, so they have a softer inside.
Once you remove the homemade mini cookies from the oven, allow the cookies to rest in the baking sheet for around 10 minutes. Cookies will harden as they cool. Making them primed and ready to enjoy in a large bowl full of milk.
How to store homemade cookie cereal
Store your homemade cookie cereal in an air-tight container for up to 3 days. To keep the cookies soft and tender, you can add a piece of bread to the container, I prefer to use our unwanted end pieces.
Just trust me! It really helps extend the life of your cookies! It’s a trick I picked up from my grandma and it really does work. The bread pretty much adds extra moisture for the cookies to stay soft and tender.
