Substitutions for Chocolate Chips in Your Cookies

A few years ago, while visiting my parents in their small Midwestern hometown I stopped into a Mennonite store and bought a number of food products, including some tiny little caramel bites that were as small as little chocolate chips but had no chocolate. I also picked up some milk chocolate covered caramel balls. At the time no products like this were generally available in the United States grocery stores so when I had used them in brownies and cookies I couldn't find any more to take their place unless I would order from Canada.

Thankfully those days are over and you can find products like this because the tiny bit of goodness they gave the brownies and cookies was just perfect and fun as well as being delicious!

If you have some of these Teenie Poppers on hand you might want to substitute them for the chocolate chips in this simple chocolate chip cookie recipe. Enjoy!

Chocolate Chip Cookies


4 sticks butter, soft (1 pound)
2 eggs
2 T molasses
2 t vanilla extract
1/3 c water
1 1/2 c brown sugar
1 1/2 c white granulated sugar
1 t baking powder
1 1/2 t baking soda
1 t salt
5 c flour
6 oz. bag of mini chocolate chips


Cream the butter, eggs, molasses, vanilla and water in a bowl. Combine the dry ingredients and blend the two. Add the chocolate chips last. Shape into 1 inch balls and place them on a parchment lined baking sheet (or lightly greased). Flatten just slightly and bake at 375 for approximately 8 minutes until golden around the edges.

Remove and cool!
