No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

One of my all-time favorite holiday cookies is this no-bake chocolate oatmeal cookies. They don’t require any baking which is a plus in my book but they also take very little effort and time to make.

A good snickerdoodle is hard to come by and these are my favorites. Soft, slightly chewy, pillowy little puffs of goodness that I can’t stay away from. – Averie Cooks

These melt-in-your-mouth cookies are supremely tender and buttery!  They’re generously filled with your favorite choice of jam.  Perfect for the holidays. – Chew Out Loud
