CNY Mocha Chocolate Rice Cookies

After all the old cookies bake,  I decided to explore some new recipes this year, however, given that time was limited, I could only go for max. two.  I picked this Mocha Chocolate Rice Cookies because I wanted something different from nuts.  In fact, the original recipe doesn't add any chocolate powder but since a lot of kids don't like coffee, I decided to make some adjustment.

I was a bit disappointed of its turn out as it's nothing special, very ordinary.   I think I will give it a miss next year and give another new recipe a chance.

Here is the recipe for sharing...
