Chocolate Cherry Oatmeal Cookies

The other day I was making regular oatmeal cookies with raisins, and I thought to myself, why don’t I add chocolate and make chocolate oatmeal cookies.  Because I wanted a deep, well rounded chocolate flavor, and I love Nutella, I used 4 different chocolates (Nutella, cocoa powder, chocolate syrup, and white chocolate chips).  I didn’t […]
