Chocolate Raspberry Chips

Chocolate Raspberry Chip Cookies

1 cup butter-flavored Crisco, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 10-oz package raspberry chips (Hershey)

Heat oven to 375 F.

Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, vanilla and salt in large bowl until creamy. Add eggs; beat well. Stir together flour, cocoa and baking soda; gradually add to butter mixture, beating until well blended. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until set. Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. About 5 dozen cookies.

Notes: Cooked with the god-daughter this afternoon after we couldn't turn up mom's recipe and had to hunt around online. Very chocolatey and chewy and yummy.

Dinner tonight (cooked by mom) was chicken with a balsamic gorgonzola sauce that looked a lot like chocolate. It was incredibly delicious. I hope she manages to post an approximation of the recipe.

Wow. Those sound way yummy. I'll have to see if I can find raspberry chips over here. And CRISCO. They don't have CRISCO. Or anything *like* it. Buh!

Mmmm...these were very tasty indeed, and simpler than our attempt with the melted chocolate, even if they didn't end up quite as rich.

Anyone been able to find raspberry chips anywhere? If so where? I can't seem to find them and I've looked everywhere...

Stringtown Grocery, which is a little Amish bulk food store in Kalona, Iowa (which is near Iowa City, IA) carries Raspberry Chocolate Chips. They are amazing. They are the only place I've ever seen them, and they make amazing cookies, and are also great in pancakes.

I have found the Raspberry Chocolate Chips one time, and never found them again. Why??

Hershey won't make the raspberry chocolate chips any longer. Frankly, nothing else takes its place. I used raspberry extract - had no taste. There are recipes using raspberry preserves/jam, but it just doesn't have that smell and flavor that the chips had. People like myself have contacted Hershey in the past, but as you can see..nothing.

If you live in northern NY (Philadelphia, NY) there is a Amish shop that sells raspberry chocolate chips. I received some as a gift because I couldn't find them anywhere and was so excited with the gift. I'm going to make these chookies.

I used to make my famous choco raspberry chip walnut cookies years ago and then all of a sudden Hershey stops making these amazing choco chips. My HUGE question is "Why"???

I found raspberry chocolate chips at Nuts On Line. Or you can use raspberry flavoring in the chocolate dough and regular semi-sweet mini chips...makes a great chocolate chocolate-raspberry chip cookie.
