Mexican Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Santa Claus is coming to town! Have you finished baking cookies or just starting? My mom made these cookies this week and I just had to share the delicious recipe with you, just in case you are looking for a new recipe.

These cookies are made with Mexican chocolate, chocolate chips, ground oatmeal, and a combination of chopped pecans and walnuts. They taste soft and gooey, warm out of the oven and light and crunchy once cooled.

It’s a delicious variation on chocolate chip cookies and perfect to make for Santa with the little ones.
