Chewy Triple-Chip Pan Cookies with Raisins

Sharing is caring!

Usually, I’m a bit skeptical about what I call, “can-a-can-a-can” recipes. Which is, plainly, recipes that just use cans of this, boxes of that, and packets and mixes. But there really are some terrific short-cut recipes out there, that are crazy-simple, and fun to toss together when you’re really short on time or just plain need to use up those “bought it on sale because it was on sale” items that have been lurking in the back of the pantry! 

They really can be a great helping hand, and come in especially handy when you need something that feeds a small crowd of kids or something to drop off at a bake sale or even a fund raiser! Or, something you’re just plain craving but don’t really have the extra time or energy to spend in the kitchen making! 😉  

This is just one of those recipes! I really like this one, and you can change it up any which way that you personally like! Chocolate chips come in dozens of flavors now, so mix and match to create all different kinds of combinations. This recipe is extra fun during holidays when all of the specialty chips are offered!

And you can swap out the raisins for golden raisins, or any variety of dried fruits! Different flavored extracts can also be used to blend with whatever goodies you’ve chosen to add, too.

Don’t really care for raisins or dried fruits? You can always add any kind of chopped nuts that you like instead! Even a simple white chocolate and pistachio pan cookie is fabulously delicious! You can change up the amounts of what you’re adding as well, if less chips and more of something else is desired.  

So use this recipe is a basic guide for whatever your heart has a desire for! It’s super easy, and kids and teens can even make them with no trouble at all! Even those that swear they can’t bake, this no-fail recipe is for you! 😉 😀  

I hope that you enjoy this one, because not only are they a breeze, they’re actually very, very good! And that’s the whole point anyways. 😉  

You all enjoy the summer, get out and soak up the warm sunshine and fresh air, and I’ll see you tomorrow! 😀

Chewy Triple-Chip Pan Cookies with Raisins

Chewy Triple-Chip Pan Cookies with Raisins

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 28 minutes
Total Time: 43 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 (18 25 oz.) box moist deluxe yellow cake mix
  • 1 (3.5 oz.) box instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 2 extra-large eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 3/4 cup white chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup milk or semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter chips
  • 1/2 cup raisins, lightly packed
  • powdered sugar, optional

Instructions

  • In large mixing bowl, beat mixes, eggs, oil, water and vanilla until well blended. Fold in chips and raisins.
  • Spread into greased 13x9 metal cake pan. (*See note.)
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Consistency will be soft like a chocolate chip cookie and will firm up and set after cooling. Do not cut until pan cookies have cooled and set.
  • Cool in pan on rack. Dust with powdered sugar if desired.
  • Cut into bars, fingers or squares.
  • Notes

    *I have tried baking these in both metal as well as glass pans and the best results were from my old metal cake pan greased with butter-flavored Crisco. The glass pan made them a bit dry and hard on all of the edges and just were not as good.
    **For the last cup of chips, I used to use the striped chips (chocolate/white chocolate), but they are hard to find sometimes. I've since been using peanut butter ones and prefer these, but you can use whatever kind(s) you like best.
