Something i found from the kahlua website (www.kahlua.com) which turned out really well. And man...who can refuse M&Ms and kahlua!! Turns out a nice brown colour, with brightly coloured candy bits. I think the wonderful texture came from the grounded oatmeal. Try this for something different.

Very tasty cookies although they were much more like an oatmeal cookie than I expected. Next time I think I will add a bit more Kahlua b/c I would have liked the taste to be stronger. All in all, very tasty and different! These are a crispy cookie - FYI. I also had 4 dozen when I was finished. Thanks for a fun recipe!
Fantastic! I only had Reese's Pieces in the house, so used those and they turned out great! I'm not sure if I can taste the Kahlua or not, but they're really good anyway! I made a half recipe and got about 20 cookies.
We could not taste the Kahlua in the cookies but they were pretty good. I wish I had read the reviews before making them. I will take some of the other reviewers suggestion and add more Kahlua next time.
