Double Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies – that old-time favorite oatmeal cookie made for chocolate lovers with the addition of cocoa and dark chocolate chips!
WHY did I never think of adding chocolate to my oatmeal cookies before this???!!
I mean, REALLY!
Chocolate in anything is good, but in an oatmeal cookie?!
I’m posting this recipe as the first installment to a wonderful new group that I’ve joined with some pretty sensational bloggers called ‘Cookie of the Month’!
We are a group of blogger who have gotten together to bring our fantastic readers one cookie recipe a month. This cookie recipe has to contain a certain ingredient and we need to come up with a recipe using it.
This month…no, it wasn’t chocolate. It was oatmeal!
I’m excited to see what next month brings. The group was started by Jennifer of Jen’s Favorite Cookies and you’ll be able to see what she and other bloggers have made by clicking the links below! This month is a little sparse because of the holidays and all, January 5th came up REAL quick like!
Next month we’ll have plenty of yummy cookies for you to drool over.
