Week 3- Chocolate Oatmeal Chewies

Recently, I was looking through the Betty Croker Bridal Cookbook that we received for our wedding (almost 16 years ago–yikes) and I landed on this recipe.  My kids don’t normally go for oatmeal cookies but I figured we’d give them a try.  They were a big hit!  They are chocolatey in the best way with a great texture.  I’m hoping now that my kids realized oatmeal cookies won’t poison you I can start adding more varieties to the mix!! Here’s the recipe, originally from Betty Crocker.
