My mom shared this recipe because it was one of my brother’s favorites growing up.  She has made many dozen for basketball teams, sports banquets, and other gatherings.  I honestly don’t remember eating them, but after trying them we made two batches in one week!

My son made the first batch of Cocoa Oatmeal Cookies and he learned it’s really important to mix all of the smooth ingredients well before adding the coarse ingredients like oats and chocolate chips.  He shared that he will always make sure the dough is mixed well and then add the chocolate chips last in the future.

I made another batch and experimented with flavors.  Mix up all of the dough, except the chips and scoop onto the cookie sheet.  Add an additional chocolate candy or chips of your choosing.
