Double Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

READY IN: 49mins
Recipe by mailbelle

This batter can be refrigerated for an hour to firm it up before baking. An additional cup of chocolate chips and 1/2 cup chopped of walnuts are also good in this soft and chewy cookie. From the American Profile section of the newpaper submitted by Jolene Hookie of David City, NE.

My mom made these, and I begged for the recipe. They are guaranteed to satisfy a chocolate craving! I'll be making these soon!
