Chocolate Covered Raisin Cookies

One of my husband's sweet weaknesses is chocolate covered raisins. He is not alone with his admiration of these little bites. You can find them in boxes of theater snacks, in trail mixes, cookies and many other treats. The raisin itself is a treat in itself, one that many of us enjoyed as children and still do today. However, when those tasty raisins are covered with a milk chocolate then a sweet and rich flavor is created in a delicious treat. 

Raisinets is one of the most popular brands of these chocolate raisin treats. They were introduce at the world fair in 1927. Several other brands sell chocolate covered raisins as well but it is Raisenetts that seem to stand out.
