Chocolate chip cookies are delicious, but what if you could customize them to be your ideal flavor choice? You can kick the cookies up a notch with substitutions. You can swap out chocolate chips or mix them together. Here are some options.
Peanut Butter Chips
Chocolate and peanut butter are great companions. Swapping out chocolate chips for peanut butter chips is good, but you’ll have to make sure there is still chocolate in them one way or another. One way is to do half chocolate and half peanut butter chips. Another way is to make a regular cookie dough and use peanut butter chips. Usually the bag has a recipe for this on the bag.Checkout organic chocolate chips for more info.
Another great cocoa accompaniment. I like to do half raspberry chips and half chocolate chips with a chocolate cookie dough. It’s mostly chocolaty, but the raspberry flavoring doesn’t have to be overpowering anyway.
Chips aren’t the only way to go. You can either buy a bar and chop or break it up, or you can buy a bag of chocolate chunks made specifically for baking. Trade them in for anything that requires chocolate chips. They won’t taste any different, but they’ll taste good.
If you absolutely love chocolate, you’d probably prefer to have it in every bite. Using mini chips instead of the regular sized morsels will help increase the chances that you’ll have a burst of chocolate in every bite. You can find them right along with the rest of the baking goods.
Most will argue that white chocolate isn’t really chocolate. Either way, you probably either love it or hate it. Again, this goes best with chocolate dough. However, if you have a bag of macadamia nuts, chop them up and make macadamia nut cookies.
Butterscotch can go either way. It can be mixed with regular chips or with a chocolate dough. I prefer chocolate chip cookies with a half cup of regular chips swapped out for a cup of butterscotch chips.
This is my favorite. They aren’t quite the same texture as other chips. Basically, they are just smaller pieces of regular caramel. I like to add 1/2 to 1 cup of caramel bits to a batch of chocolate chip cookies. They got gooey, soft and super tasty. Mixed in with the chocolate, it’s the perfect treat. You can also mix them in a batch of chocolate brownies.
Mix it Up
Feel free to combine any of the above ideas together. Caramel might go great with raspberries, who knows? Being creative and experimenting is not only fun, it’s a great way to find new combinations no one would ever have thought of that might be amazing.
