Boozy Chocolate Fruit & Nut Cookies

How many of you like Fruit & Nut chocolate bars? *Raises both hands*

I love the little surprises of raisin and nuts that intersperse the chocolate bar. Figured it is about time there are cookies that mimic this deliciousness right? But can they be taken up another notch?

When there are raisins in the mix, the other thing that pops into my head is ALWAYS rum! *hic* Rum and raisins are such a divine combo! My rum and raisin cake is clear testament to the fact.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies have been my go-to for as long as I can remember. Growing up, we used to get only plain, vanilla biscuits for the longest time. But once the market opened up and people’s preferences became more varied, we started seeing a lot more ‘fancy’ cookies in the market. One of the first new types was the chocolate chip. It started off as the thinner, crisper variety (the recipe of which shall be up soon), but then also added on the thicker, chewier version. My aunts used to get the chewy chocolate chip cookies from the US as well – those were these super luxury goodies for us back in the day. And so delicious!

On my recent trip to New York, I tried a ton of cookies. Like really a ton. My favourite were from this bakery called Levain. BEST COOKIES EVER! Massive, thick, dense, chewy and full of chocolate in every bite. Heaven!

While these aren’t at that level yet (I promise to try to replicate those), these are pretty much bang on in terms of thick, chewy cookies. I ate way too many in the process of testing, all worth it, I say 😀

Peanut Butter Cookies

For me, cookies are synonymous with quick bites of goodness. They are crunchy yet chewy, have bursts of flavour and leave you feeling content with just a few bites. One good cookie can really change your mood and bring a smile to your face.

To top it off, they are fairly easy to make and have such a variety of flavours that the options seem endless. One of my favourite flavours, in life, is peanut butter. This lends itself extremely well to cookies. Extra buttery (regular + peanut butter!), a mix of salty and sweet, crunchy on the outside and melt-in-the-mouth overall. YUM.
