Oatmeal Raisinet Cookies
I love a good oatmeal raisin cookie. I also love chocolate covered raisins. They are my first choice of movie theater candies. Skittles come very very close. Oh, and Mike and Ikes too. But, if I’m looking for chocolate, Raisinets are number one.
My kids however are not big fans of raisins. By making these cookies with chocolate covered raisins, we have the best of both worlds. Oatmeal Raisin cookies for me…and Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies for them!
You can substitute raisins for the chocolate covered raisins, and eliminate the chocolate chips if you want a classic oatmeal raisin cookie. Or you can only add chocolate chips if you want an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie. See, everyone’s happy!
