It’s hard to believe, but the three dozen Chewy Chocolate Cherry Oatmeal Cookies I made on Friday are almost gone. I wish I were kidding, but…there are maybe 10 cookies left in the jar. Yeah. Dan and I are gross.
In a last ditch effort to exercise self restraint, I have packed away the remaining cookies and will be taking them to work tomorrow. (You’re welcome, Will.) If I can’t be skinny anymore, no one else can either!
Just kidding, calm down. No one is going to get fat from those cookies. They’re “healthy,” remember? Ha…ha…haha…ha.
Anyway, packing away the oatmeal cookies meant that Dan and I would be snack-less during the Oscars. That would be tragic! So, in a totally logical and reasonable move, I whipped us up another batch of cookies. With chocolate chips. In bar-form. Yeah, there’s going to be some serious cookie-belly pains happening tonight. Worth it. These cookie bars are too good to pass up!
Happy Oscar Night, guys!
