Mom ... Can you make some cookies! 

If you have two cookie-loving kids like I do they're asking all the time. This oatmeal cookie is mixed with chocolate goodness and colored fun. 

Mini M&Ms give this oatmeal cookie recipe sweet crunch that's a break from the traditional oatmeal raisin cookie. Fact is my kids prefer chocolate over raisins.

I've made many oatmeal style cookies but this one takes the cake. These cookies are chewy yet melt in your mouth. You'll need a full glass of milk to wash these down.

Keep a close eye on the oven because these cookies can overbake quickly.  After nine minutes, while they may not look golden brown these babies are done.
