No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Craving a quick, homemade chocolate treat? These delicious cookies have been my go-to recipe since I learned to make them in Girl Scouts. The ingredients are all items most people have on hand, so you don't even need to make a trip to the store. 10 minutes and they're done! My teenage daughter seems to have inherited my love of making sweets, and whenever she asks, "what can I make," the answer is usually No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies.
