I was having a massive chocolate attack last weekend, so I came up with this. I am normally not crazy about raisins in my cookies but I like them when paired with nuts and chocolate. This started as your standard basic chocolate chip cookie recipe, but you wouldn't know it by the end result.
- 1⁄2 cup margarine, softened
- 1⁄2 cup butter, softened
- 3⁄4 cup sugar
- 3⁄4 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1⁄4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 1⁄2 cups flour
- 1⁄2 cup white chocolate chips
- 1⁄2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1⁄2 cup milk chocolate chips or 1⁄2 cup M&M'
- 1⁄2 cup chocolate-covered nuts (cashews)
- 1⁄4 cup raisins
- Preheat oven to 350°F
- Beat butter, sugars, cocoa,baking soda, and salt in a large bowl on medium speed for 3 minutes or until fluffy.
- Beat in eggs and vanilla until well blended. Gradually add in flour while mixing on low speed. Mix until well-blended.
- Stir in the chocolate chips, nuts, and raisins.
- Form balls of dough measuring 1 1/2 - 2 inches in diameter, and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten the balls slightly with the palm of your hand.
- Bake for 12-14 minutes (don't overbake or they might be dry).
- Cool on cookie sheets for about 2 minutes before moving them to wire racks to finish cooling.
Mine came out like hockey puks plus they smelt weird
Pretty tasty recipe. I left out the raisins and used chocolate coated pecans rather than cashews. Will make again in the future
These cookies were very yummy.We did not put any cashews or raisins. We just added peanut butter chips. Without the nuts and raisins these cookies were moist and very good and all of the ingredients were already in my pantry! Thank you!
