Chocolate Cookies With Chocolate Covered Raisins

"We bought a bunch of dark chocolate covered raisins from the candy bins where you scoop out what you want. So my DH scooped up a lot! I hid half of it till I tossed this recipe together. The outside is crunchy, but the center will be moist and chewy. This recipe has two methods of directions so it's not a hard recipe to put together. Your choice."

  1. WOW, just wow!!!! I love chocolate covered raisins and I love cookies, so this for me is a marriage made in heaven. :)<br/>The cookies are easy enough to make and so super tasty! A chocolate lovers dream! They are just like a brownie in cookie shape. In fact these are so good that I will bake them as brownies next time Im asked to bring some. lol<br/>I made half the recipe and used only 1/8 cup sugar, no egg yolk and as I didnt have enough covered raisins I added in the missing amount in chocolate chunks and regular raisins. That worked out nicely and I ended up with 13 BIG cookies, that were devoured very fast! I will definitely make these again and again! THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this superb recipe with us, ~Rita~<br/>Made and reviewed for your being VIP during Veggie Swap #29 December 2010.
  2. Made these with Dove chocolate covered cranberries, and they were incredible!!!
  3. These were awesome, at first I thought "it's just another chocolate cookie", but after I kept eating and eating them, I decided they were the bomb :-)
  4. I made these awhile back and I forgot to review it! These were so good, chocolatey and yummy! I did leave out the egg yolk, just out of pure laziness. Thank you Rita for a delicious cookie!
