I am not sure where I originally found this recipe.
- 2 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate
- 2 1/4 cup flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt (we didn’t use as we use salted butter)
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 1/2 cup raisins (this amount is definitely too much for the batter. We used closer to 3/4 cups)
- 1 cup chocolate chips (we again used closer to 3/4 cup)
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- In a double boiler over hot but not boiling water melt the unsweetened chocolate. Remove from heat and set aside.
- In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt.
- In a large bowl, mix together brown sugar, sugar and butter. Add eggs and vanilla. Add melted chocolate.
- Add the flour mixture. Add the raisins and chocolate chips and mix until just combined.
- Drop by tablespoons onto baking sheets. Bake for 20-22 minutes.
Verdict: I found these cookies to be a little dry; I am thinking that the last 1/4 cup of flour may not have been needed. I also, personally, was not a fan of the chocolate and raisin taste together in this cookie, which is odd because I love chocolate covered raisins.
