Have you ever had a “Chunky” Candy bar? If not, you NEED to try one. They are amazing. They literally have everything you could possible want in a candy bar… Chocolate, Raisins and nuts… SO GOOD! I was craving one the other day and thought to myself that it would be delicious as a cookie so I gave it a go and OH MY GOODNESS! Tastes just as great!!! Now, there isn’t any of the actual candy bar IN the cookie but they do share the main ingredients and since my Double Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe is such a huge hit, I used that as the base and just added raisins and almonds. Super Easy and Simply Delicious. I hope you enjoy!
Chocolate Chunky Cookies
1 Cup of Softened Butter
2 Tbsp. Canola Oil
1 Whole Egg plus 1 Yolk
1 Tbsp. Vanilla Extract
1 Cup of Packed Brown Sugar
3/4 Cup of White Sugar
3 Cups of All Purpose Flour
2 Tbsp. Corn Starch
1 1/2 Tsp. Baking Soda
1 Tsp. Salt
1 Cup of Raisins
1 Cup of Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
3 oz. Sliced Almonds
Pre-Heat Oven to 350°
Cream together the Softened Butter, Canola Oil, Brown Sugar and White Sugar till light and fluffy
Add the Egg and the extra Yolk and the Vanilla Extract, mix until combined
In a separate bowl whisk together the Flour, Salt, Baking Soda and Corn Starch
Add half of the Dry ingredients to the Creamed butter, once combined add the other half of the dry ingredients and mix well.
Add Semi Sweet Chocolate chips, Raisins and Almonds,fold ingredients together with a spatula (Don’t use a mixer, the chocolate chips will break)
Chill the Dough for at least 30 mins
Scoop your dough (I use a Tablespoon sized scoop)and place on a non-greased baking sheet
Bake for about 12-15 mins depending on your oven, check periodically to make sure they don’t burn. Once the edges are golden brown you can take them out.
Allow cookies to rest on the baking sheet for at least 5 mins before removing to a cooling rack.
