Don’t get turned off by hearing oatmeal. These are not at all like the oatmeal cookies you have tried before. I do enjoy oatmeal cookies, but usually with M&Ms in them. I wanted to have something chocolaty for when my friend visited me recently, so I found this recipe through a Cook’s Country magazine. I changed it a bit, so I am submitting my version below.
These cookies taste chocolaty first with a crisp start, and then become chewy and even more rich tasting. The chewiness is not super chewy, but more soft inside. The melted chocolate really works well for this. The recipe calls for milk chocolate for that part, which I used, but I used the Theo Classic Milk Chocolate bar which has a higher cacao percentage than many other milk chocolate bars. Basically, use whatever chocolate tastes good for you, but not the darkest stuff you have around.
