So, I started writing this post as though today would be Friday. It isn’t Friday. It’s only Thursday. I guess I don’t need to say how long of a week it has been! I need a cookie. If you’re having the same kind of week as me and need a cookie, too, I have just the ones that will cure “long week” blues. . .caramel dark chocolate chip oat cookies!
Soft, chewy cookies loaded with gooey caramel and melty dark chocolate. They can make all kinds of situations better. I highly recommend eating them warm and gooey from the oven with coffee, because coffee is needed for weeks like this. But a large glass of milk will work, too! If you don’t eat them all while they’re warm, these cookies stay nice and chewy once cool.
You won’t have to worry about how long they’ll keep, because they will be eaten up in no time! So go make yourself a batch of cookies and power through the last two days of the week!
What makes these cookies even better is that they are a part of OXO‘s Bake a Difference campaign in support of Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, a non-profit organization founded by two OXO employees inspired by their son’s battle with cancer. During the month of September, OXO is donating $100 to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer for every blog post that is dedicated to this campaign.
You can help too! OXO is also donating 25 cents per specially marked item in support of pediatric cancer as part of its $100,000 pledge to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. Look for specially marked OXO products at participating retailers! You can view eligible products here.
