Double Dark Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
These rich treats get their name and richness from the double dose of darkness - cocoa powder and bittersweet couverture chocolate chips. They get their chewy-crunchy texture from Scottish pinhead oats, and it's a mélange a trois made in heaven.
These oatmeal cookies with chocolate chips are dark, rich and oh so chewy.
