I saw this on Regis and Kelly also! I used 3/4 c milk chocolate chips and 3/4 chocolate covered raisens (very good) for the sweet ing. and 1 1/2 c crushed pretzels for the salty ing. These had great flavor but next time I think I will cut back 1 tsp on the salt, it was a little strong. These also turned out somewhat flat so I took out my last batch a bit earlier to see if that helped, they soon fell flat also (I chilled for 1 1/2 hrs) I make cookies alot so I know what makes a cookie flat, I checked my soda and powder to make sure they were active, oven temp was right and butter was not too soft, so I think I may cut back on the butter 1/4 c and see if that works! Thanks for posting, next time I am going to try potato chips!
I halved the recipe and still got 30 cookies of normal size (tablespoonish drops). I used 1/2 c. peanut butter chips, 1/2 cup chocolate chips, 1/2 cup crushed pretzels, 1/2 c. crushed peanut butter and cracker sandwich snacks, and 1/4 cup of crushed walnuts and I put in 1/2 tsp of coffee grounds. I put my dough in the freezer about 3 hours (I went to a movie and baked them when I got home. I'd make these again, I had a friend recommend putting coconut in them.
My husband loves these cookies, because the salt and sweet combo is really his thing. I agree on the amount of salt; I only used 1 tsp. the second time since there seems to be plenty from the other salty ingredients.
