Dairy Wife Wednesday...Butter Crisp Chocolate Valentine Cookie

I LOVE a good, chewy brownie (if I have time...I will post a FABULOUS recipe tomorrow.)  I LOVE a warm, molten lava cake.  But, we are changing it up this year for a sweet Valentine's Day treat...taking this any time treat with a "heart" twist!

This buttery oatmeal goodness of a cookie will soon be your favorite, too!  A few ingredients and that is can doll them up by cutting them out with a heart cookie cutter and dipping half in chocolate or drizzling with chocolate.  Lot of ideas...just make them how you like them.  Oh, and use REAL CA butter!!!

You will need:

You can melt chocolate and dip half of the cookies in...for a sweet look and chocolate treat!

Or just drizzle melted chocolate on for a dainty 4 year old LOVED drizzling the chocolate on.    She drizzled this one for mom...see all the chocolate on there for me?  This is a good job for little helpers!

Easy recipe...but, when you cut them out with a heart cookie cutter and drizzle them with chocolate...instant Valentine treat!

Love & Junk~
