Chocolate Chip Cookies

With cookie season upon us I figured it was just about time to start up the blog again. Last week I discovered this incredible chocolate chip recipe, easily the best homemade chocolate chip cookies I've had. The recipe makes a huge amount of cookies, I cut it in half and still had about 2 dozen. I recommend freezing the chocolate bar in advance and grating it in the blender, this made it very easy. Enjoy!

2 cups butter
4 cups flour
2 teaspons baking soda
5 cups blended oatmeal
24 ounces chocolate chips
2 cups packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 8 oz chocolate bar, grated
4 large eggs
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons vanilla

Measure oatmeal and blend in a blender to a fine powder. Cream the butter and both sugars. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix together with flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder and soda. Add chocolate chips, grated Hershey Bar and nuts. Roll into balls and place on a cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes at 375° or until golden. Enjoy with a tall glass of milk!
