Sweet Secret

Is this the best weekend ever?  It’s gotta be…treats two days in a row.  Yippee!!!  Since our Valentine’s Day Treat was quite divine we decided to keep Saturday’s treat a little more simple.   We took our favorite oatmeal cookie recipe and mixed in semi sweet chocolate chips, heath bits, and M&Ms.  But we didn’t stop there.  We added in a secret ingredient (wait for it…wait for it…) pretzels.  Yes pretzels!  They add enough saltiness to counteract all of the richness from the chocolates.  Simply Superb!
