Cookies are a very versatile dessert—they work with a lot of different flavors and come in many shapes and sizes. It’s so easy to try out new combinations; start off with a basic cookie recipe and then just throw in some ingredients that you have in your kitchen. If you want some new cookie flavor ideas, take a look at the combinations below. Use to set out your extra ingredients to help keep everything organized if you’re making multiple batches of cookies.
Cookie Ingredient Suggestions:
Dark Chocolate Blueberry—Throw dried blueberries and dark chocolate chips into a cookie mix to get this delicious combination.
Chocolate-Covered Pretzel—First, break pretzels into smaller parts so that they can be more easily combined with other ingredients. Milk chocolate chips will pair well with this; any type of chocolate will work, though!
Hazelnut Mocha—Mix hazelnuts, chocolate chips, and instant coffee mix into cookie dough for a cookie that tastes like a specialty coffee.
Cinnamon White Chocolate—Add white chocolate chips directly to a cookie mix. For the cinnamon, you could use cinnamon chips or sprinkle cinnamon on the cookies right before baking them.
Chocolate Bacon—Crumble cooked bacon into cookie batter; then, toss in chocolate chips. You could also simply use chocolate that already has bacon in it to make this recipe even easier.
Marshmallow Peanut Butter—Make peanut butter cookies and add marshmallows.
Lemon Pecan—Lemon zest and pecan halves will add a nice flavor to these cookies. White chocolate chips would taste good with this, too.
Walnut Oatmeal—Oatmeal helps to make these cookies a little healthier, while walnuts also add essential nutrients.
Try using ingredients in different amounts to suit your palate. For example, if you want a sweeter cookie, you can add more white chocolate chips. Have fun experimenting!
