If you like, you can substitute the chocolate chips with raisins. I’ve tried it, and it tastes much better because the raisins give an outstanding flavor in the cookies. Also, you can add some of you’re preferred nuts.
You can replace salt with sea salt, by doing so, it will add a delicious kick to the cookie, and those salty bites will only help enhance the sweetness.
