Hey this was a great idea although the finished product (for me) was a little too much of one thing. I used regular instant oatmeal made with milk and some milk chocolate chips. It probably would have been better with the semi-sweet like suggested but I didn't have those. Also added some peanut butter to it. Thanks!
Sorry but this was just OK for us. We love oatmeal and we love chocolate but we just didn't care for this together. I followed the recipe exactly as written. I tried adding peanut butter later and still didn't wasn't crazy about it.
Thanks for an easy, quick and above all, great-tasting recipe. I didn't have any chocolate chips, so I substituted with 1 ounce semi-sweet cooking chocolate, finely chopped. It was a bit on the thick side for me but all in all, it certainly filled me up. I'll definately be making this again in future.
yuuuum...this was a nice treat to have for breakfast! I did add peanut butter to it, and that made it even better. Thanks, Charishma!
I made this for my 2 boys as a mid-morning snack and added in some sliced bananas. They liked it pretty well, and I thought it was good too, although if I were to make this again I think I would definately try adding some peanut butter. It just needed a little something I thought. Interesting recipe though and fun to try!
This was great, but I used the oatmeal, nonfat milk, chocolate syrup and added about 1 Tbsp. peanut butter! It was awsome!Keeps you full and makes you warm on a cold morning!
This was very good. People will think I'm crazy, but I thought it was a little TOO chocolatey. Next time I'll cut back to 3T of chocolate chips. It was a nice change and I'll definitely try it again.
mmmmmmmmmm... I'm eating it as I type. I stirred in about a tablespoon of low fat cream cheese too (leftover from Panera--couldn't think of anything else I'd use it for). Thanks! (I don't know how I'll ever eat regular oatmeal again!)
Perfection! Warm and comforting in the middle of the night, and the balance of chocolate to oatmeal was perfect! I try to use soymilk as much as possible, and it was so creamy and delicious! Can't wait to try all of your many delectable-sounding creations!
Another great review here! I made this for hubby over the weekend, and he really enjoyed it! I covered the chocolate chips with the oatmeal and placed it in the microwave w/the milk before he had a chance to see it. I placed the bowl in front of him and started stirring. needless to say, he was pleasantly surprised! Thanks Char, this is a keeper!
