These chewy cookies are endlessly customizable to suit your mood. Choose your any combination of nuts, candy or dried fruit. The potato chips in these chewy jumbles add a salty finish that really works for those who love the sweet and salty combination.
Reduce the speed to low and add the flour mixture in batches until just blended. Be careful not to overbeat or the dough will toughen. Stir in the chocolate chips and your choice of stir-ins with a wooden spoon until well combined. Chill the dough 30 minutes or overnight.
Shape or use an ice cream scoop to scoop the dough into 2-inch balls spaced about 3 inches apart on baking sheets. Bake until golden brown around the edges, about 15 minutes. Let cool on the baking sheets about 3 minutes before transferring the cookies to a cooling rack to cool completely.
