Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Cream the butter in a mixing bowl or the bowl of your stand mixer. Add sugars and mix about three minutes until fluffy. Don't forget to scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula and to scrape the bottom of the bowl, if using a stand mixer.
Add eggs one at a time, mixing thoroughly to combine.
Stir in vanilla extract.
Add flour and baking soda. Mix until just combined.
Add chocolate covered raisins and chocolate chips. Stir with spatula well to combine.
Using a 3/4 ounce cookie scoop, drop scoops of dough on parchment lined sheet. If using a half sheet pan, you can get 12 cookies on a sheet.
Bake at 350 for 12 to 15 minutes. When you smell the cookies, they are done or nearly so.
