When I made this recipe I added 1 cup plain chocolate candies to it instead of raisins and just made them into cookies without the sticks!! Really good!!!

monster pops

These are great for any season. We decorated for a fall festival with orange,red, and yellow. They were a great hit.!!!

Great cookies, even without decorations

I was in the mood for a good, chewy, large-sized chocolate chip oatmeal cookie, so I made these without the wooden sticks and frosting. I changed the sugars to 1/2 cup granulated and 1 cup dark brown to see if they would come out chewier (don't know if it made a difference). I also used milk chocolate chips and substituted the raisins with toasted pecans. My co-workers thought this was the best cookie they've ever had, and I tend to believe them!
