Chocolate Oatmeal Biscuits

When I opened this month's Delicious magazine I knew straight away that I must try these.

I wasn't disappointed. These are seriously good biscuits. Crunchy on the outside, slightly chewy in the middle and very chocolatey. They are divine when eaten still warm from the oven and the chocolate is still melted.

They are really simple to make. A standard biscuit recipe. The Delicious recipe also adds hazelnuts. I'm not a fan of nuts in sweet foods (other than chocolate coated almonds and hazelnut praline and okay fruit and nut chocolate, but other than that.....) so I left them out.
