“We bought a bunch of dark chocolate covered raisins from the candy bins where you scoop out what you want. So my DH scooped up a lot! I hid half of it till I tossed this recipe together. The outside is crunchy, but the center will be moist and chewy. This recipe has two methods of directions so it's not a hard recipe to put together. Your choice.”
