Chocolate Chip Cookies
1) Dried Fruit: Substitute 2 cups diced dried apricots or dried cranberries for the chocolate chips.
2) Heath Bar: Substitute 2 cups chopped Heath Bar for the chocolate chips.
3) Granola: A great way to sneak some fiber cereal into a cookie. Substitute 3 cups dense crunchy granola-type cereal for the chocolate chips. Or keep the chips in and add 2 cups cereal to the batter.
4) Caramel: Add 2 cups soft caramels (such as Kraft), cut into quarters, in place of chocolate chips. (Tip: Chill caramels until firm and cut using kitchen scissors.)
5) Peanut Brittle: This is a great way to recycle semi-stale peanut brittle. Add 2 cups chopped peanut brittle in place of chocolate chips
6) Malted Milk Balls: Coarsely chop malted milk balls and substitute or add in addition to chocolate chips.
