Real Men Cook: Raspberry Chocolate Chip Cookies

Raspberry Chocolate Chip Cookies #healthycookies #dessert #chocolatechipcookies

A delicious recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookies that is slightly adapted from the Tollhouse recipe to make it healthier. It is then amped up with fresh raspberries and dark chocolate.

Now, why would I post a recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookies on Real Men Cook Day?  Well, I’ll tell you.. because my man can make these Chocolate Chip Cookies .. but he can do it blindfolded!  No lie!  Before Mike and I were dating, I came down to Texas with his sister for an Easter vacation to visit him.  Well, she visited him, I just tagged along. {it was warmer than Wisconsin okay!}  Anyways, while on vacation we had gotten on the topic of Chocolate Chip Cookies.  Mike told me that he could make some amazing soft Chocolate Chip Cookies. Knowing that he was a guy and most guys can’t cook or bake, I didn’t believe him and kept teasing him.  Mike, never known to shy away from a challenge, said that he could not only make the most amazing Chocolate Chip Cookies I had ever tasted.  But he could do it blindfolded!

WHAT!?! Game on!

I tied a blindfold around his eyes, placed all the ingredients on the counter in front of him as well as measuring cups. {we were in someone else’s house and he didn’t know his way around the kitchen…I know I was nice}  The blindfolded cookie process began. To my surprise he did a pretty good job and didn’t make too much of a mess.  This was actually the day that I realized I did have feelings for him. Here is a blast from the past picture that was taken after the blindfolded cookie experience.. he decided to dip me back and put flour all over my face. 🙂

We actually still make his cookie recipe to this day, it was his mom’s who got it from.. Nestle Tollhouse!  I have actually changed up the recipe a bit to make it healthier and added some raspberries which is why you have these amazing Raspberry Chocolate Chip Cookies today!  They are perfectly soft, and almost have a cake-like texture. So good and perfect with a glass of ice cold milk. {best when hot out of the oven and the chocolate is melting!!}

I dare you to make them blindfolded! 🙂 hehe

To get started, preheat oven to 375º. Add 1/2 cup {1 stick} of softened butter to stand mixer.

    1. haha. I know, he was so excited after I put them in the oven. Ran right over and started pointing, looking at me, and then pointing again. 🙂 He was happy when he could finally eat some.

  1. I like a woman who’s not afraid to dare a guy… no wonder he fell for you. You got spunk. Love the story and the cookies. Thanks for sharing them with us on foodie friday.

  2. Krista, these cookies look and sound just awesome! Love the photo of the little guy! 🙂 Thanks so much for partying with us and Sharing at Best of the Weekend – pinning and sharing on FB tomorrow! 🙂 Have a fantastic week!

    1. hahaa.. thanks Cindy. He was my little helper for the day and as soon as those cookies went in the oven he had to see what was going on. 🙂 Thanks for throwing a great party for the sharing! Your awesome!

    1. Awesome Jessica! So glad to hear that. I am convinced we add way more butter and sugar in things that don’t need it! This recipe took a full half out of the normal chocolate chip cookie recipe and still tastes awesome, plus raspberries basically rock in anything. 🙂 Thanks so much for letting me know girl, that is super encouraging!

    I made these tonight and they were easily the best cookies I have ever had! I used white chocolate chips instead of dark chocolate and chilled the dough for about a half hour before baking them. They were amazing! Do you think they would be ok if I froze the dough?

    1. Awesome! So glad to hear it Olivia. Love the white chocolate changeup!

      You could totally freeze the dough. I would recommend portioning the cookies out almost like you were going to put them in the oven but instead put them in the freezer. Keep them in the freezer for 6 hours or ovenight so that the balls freeze, then toss them in a ziplock and through back in the freezer. That way all you have to do is through the prepared dough balls on the baking sheets and your good to go. Should last for up to 3 months!

  4. Ha! Krista! Last night, I was attempting to make crispy white chocolate chip raspberry cookies. Totally messed them up. Was just doing some additional research now on how to accomplish what I want to do, and your recipe just opened in front of me. Looks like I used WAY too many raspberries. Which makes sense from the literal hot mess I was looking at after they cook. Also, I thought wax paper and baking paper were the same thing. :/ Excited to revise my recipe after seeing yours. Have a great weekend!!!!!

    1. haha.. I did thought they were the same too. Until I tried like you and was sorely mistaken. Oh well ya live and ya learn. 🙂 Hope you enjoy these… we love adding raspberries or really any fruit to our cookies!

    Hello, I found a recipe for these cookies, only using white chocolate chips, and I am very confused and embarrassed almost because my cookies are a green/gray color. 🙁
    Were yours greenish/gray or am I officially bad at baking?

    1. hmmm.. sometimes when raspberries are baked and the pH level is not right before baking they turn greyish blue afterward. Ways to fix it, remove the baking powder from the recipe or get a baking powder that is aluminum free, or you could try adding a little lemon juice for acidity. Hope this helps Haley… fingers crossed for red cookies this time. 🙂

    I was searching for a raspberry and chocolate chip cookie recipe (wasn’t sure it even existed) as I had some fresh raspberries that needed to be used.
    I came across yours and I had all the ingredients in the house and decided to try it.
    Although they don’t look quite as good as yours, they are SO SO good. Not sure how I am going to stop myself from eating them all. I think that I will have to bring them to work so that I am not tempted by them all.
    Great recipe!

  7. […] In the food department, I have no problem explaining my plan to him. In fact, sometimes I explain it to him too much that his eyes probably glaze over from boredom. No not really, he enjoys trying to figure out what I’m going to come up with next and even helps me with some of the recipes. {like my Lamb Endives with Cherry Balsamic Sauce or Raspberry Chocolate Chip Cookies} […]
