TWD- Chocolate Oatmeal Drops

This week's TWD is for Chocolate Oatmeal Drops. I've never had chocolate oatmeal cookies. Obviously, I've had oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, but not chocolate oatmeal. These cookies are super easy and quick- they get their rich (I mean, RICH) chocolate flavor from cocoa powder and melted chocolate. I halved the recipe because I wasn't sure if my family would love them. Actually, I halved it because I only had 1 stick of butter in my fridge. :)
I thought these were fairly tasty, but not my favorite. I might have overbaked them a little- they seemed a little dry. My husband ate one. My two daughters ate a couple each. And my 18 month old ate 5. Today. (I know, what kind of mother lets an 18 month old eat 5 cookies? One who's trying to get a Valentine's present for her husband at the mall!)
The recipe will be here.


  1. I think I may have overbaked mine, too, as mine weren't fudgy as others have described. Sounds like they were still popular though!

  2. Ah...I have been an accomplice in cookie overload many a day! Not my favorites, either. Good, but I don't know if they were good enough to make again, for me anyway. Nicely done!! Hope he got a nice gift, too!

  3. Well done! I always reduce recipes based on how much butter I have on hand!!

  4. I too adjust my recipes according to my butter supply and sometimes my egg supply! Mine were pretty fudgy but I did play around with the baking times. Thanks for baking with us this week!
