This recipe is excellent. My cookies must have been much bigger than the recipe called for, because I only got 60 and I had to bake them for 10-12 minutes instead of six. Still, fantastic cookie that I will make again.

This is one of my favorite cookie recipes, and they never last long when you share them. I like to use mini m&m's instead of chocolate chips, and I sometimes add a little peanut butter (1/4 to 1/2 cup) to make them even more yummy! Even though its a pain to blend the oatmeal and grate the hershey's bars, it's worth it! My little brother is always begging me to make these and I tell him I will if he grates the chocolate. Try these cookies - you won't be disappointed!!

this is an awesome recipe except that it took me more that 6 minutes per sheet.. i put the cookies in for at least 15 minutes each.. and they were not burnt, nor were they undercooked.. it was a big hit with my family and coworkers..

If you add 2-3 tbs of espresso to this recipe, it is a yummy addition

This recipe is awesome! I tried it out of curiosity, brought the cookies to work, and everyone loved them. They fought over who was going to eat the last one. It makes about a million cookies, so unless you are sharing it with a large number of people, cut the recipe in half, or you will have more cookies than you know what to do with!

I received this "hoax" email forward about 4 years ago, but never attempted the recipe. A friend of the family made it for us just a few weeks ago and it tastes incredible! I can't believe I held on to this recipe for so long!!

chewy goodness, not crispy at all. i even threw in craisins and left the oatmeal whole, and they were great.

I've made these cookies several times and they are always really good!!! I usually splurge when I make these and buy quality chocolate (Ghiradelli's) and use pecans for the nuts. I like mine a little soft, so I don't cook them as long...

Sorry, I seem to be the minority here. Although not terrible, these are the worst cookies I've ever made/eaten. They are very very dry and don't have a chocolate chip cookie melt in your mouth taste. I wont be making these again. I would have given two stars, but the group was divided in half about two or three.
