    You can use just about any flavor combinations, add nuts or other items like dried fruit or coconut. We generally use yellow cake and chocolate chips but I'm dying to try chocolate cake and peanut butter chips and red velvet with white chips and pecans or walnuts. You could also use cake frosting and put it between two cookies!
