I love oats. And I didn’t realize how much I love oatmeal cookies until…. now. For real. I’ve always been an oats-in-the-morning kind of girl but these take oats to a whole new levels. The regular oatmeal batter was delicious, and then you add some chopped candy cane Hershey kisses and it is fab.

THEN to top it all off, you dip these bad boys in white or milk chocolate, sprinkle some crushed peppermint on top, and nom. If you’re generous, you share. If you’re not, you keep them. Because they are that good.
