Hubby isn't much of a candy eater, which is totally the opposite of me. If it's sweet, you can bet I'm all in! But once in a while Hubby get a sweet craving and Chocolate Covered Raisins are his go to treat. During a trip to Costco last month, we ended up bringing home a ginormous container of choco covered raisins. This container has been on our counter, for what seems like forever. Most days I dip into it, the kids dip into it and Hubby avoids it like the plague. How the heck he can see candy and not want to eat it, is beyond me, but I guess we are all made differently.
Anyway, I decided that I wanted to make something with them. So I did a search and came up with tons of ideas. Brownies, blondies, cookies..... these cookies from Sally's Baking Addiction quickly caught my eye. I love oatmeal raisin cookies with chocolate chips in them, so why not just use choco covered raisins? I pretty much followed the recipe to a T, except for only using 1/2 tsp cinnamon, rather than 1 1/2. I did bake them a bit longer though, since they didn't seem baked through after 10 minutes. These cookies are FABULOUS! Just ask my cat..... who seriously tried photobombing my cookie shots for this post, LOL. She's never done that in the whole 5 yrs I've been blogging, so you know the cookies are awesome! The kids really loved them too. Crisp on the outside, soft on the inside. They'll have you reaching for a second and a glass of milk!
