This isn’t a recipe. Just a suggestion on how to jazz up your favorite chocolate chip cookie box mix or a fun flavor combination for your made-from-scratch chocolate chip cookie recipe. I used a box mix this time because I had one in the pantry that was leftover from the holidays. I do recommend using a premium box mix if you go that route, the chocolate will taste better.
I added (stir to combine) 2/3cup golden raisins along with 1/3cup each dried cranberries, slivered almonds, mini semi-sweet chocolate chips* and wheat germ** to the dry mix before I added it to the butter and egg mixture.*** Bake according to the package directions.
* I like to add in more chocolate chips just to make them extra decadent. But feel free to leave them out.
** The wheat germ just adds a little nutrition. (we didn’t taste the wheat germ in the cookies) But again, feel free to leave it out.
*** My box mix required me to mix egg and butter together so I’m assuming yours does too. If yours is different just mix the add-ins with the dry ingredients prior to adding it to the wet ingredients.
