Norma's Chocolate Oat Chewies

Norma DeRemer


I've made these cookies before with out the candy and decised to add a piece of Hershey Candy Bars on top of each cookie. Just had to make a batch last week end. I made these last year during the Holidays along with several other type of cookies and gave them to neighbors for gifts and all ask me for the recipe. They are so good!
