Oatmeal Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are my go to cookies for special school events or if I need a quick little dessert for when we have company coming over  (kid company, usually ;)) I make these every year for grandparents day at my kids preschool, and every year they are gone before I can come steal one!  I always overhear people asking “Who made these oatmeal raisin cookies?” “Ooooo is that chocolate in there, I love chocolate, that was such a good idea!”

I never really ate too many oatmeal raisin cookies growing up so they were never my favorite.  But I thought, why not jazz them up with a little chocolate?  I really didn’t know how it would turn out, but I am sure glad I took the plunge!  They are   F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C!!!!

Everyone that I make these for LOVE THEM!  I always get tons of compliments on them!  They are such a simple little cookie! But they are packed with tons of YUMMINESS!
