For me, the Super Bowl is mostly a great excuse to eat junk food. I was at Costco buying the junk food and their giant tub of chocolate covered raisins caught my eye. Raisinets are my favorite movie candy, but I try to avoid buying the huge Costco jar of chocolate covered raisins because I definitely eat more than I should if they’re in the house.

Then I remembered that I’d been wanting to make cookies with Raisinets and I decided I could justify buying the enormous container of chocolate covered raisins if it was also a baking ingredient! So Oatmeal Raisinet Cookies became a delicious part of our Super Bowl smorgasboard.

The cold cookies are better than a hot one right out of the oven because the chocolate has time to set up around the raisin again.

I made these cookies again recently for an open house my realtor was hosting. When I got home the entire platter of cookies was gone. I’d say they were a hit. I hope you’ll give them a try too.
