Chocolate Oatmeal Scotchies

Hey y'all! I hope Easter was as good for y'all as it was for me. So much good food and such great company. I am truly blessed to have such a wonderful family so close by me.

And one of those perks of living close to family is coming "home" to homemade foods. Which means, NO DORM FOOD FOR AT LEAST A DAY!!!!

On Easter, my auntie made these Chocolate Oatmeal Scotchies that were just to die for. Like OMG y'all. I wanted to eat every single cookie AND lick the plate. So, naturally, I got the recipe from my aunt to share with y'all...
