Note from Mr Breakfast:
I finally got around to trying this recipe today (May, 15, 2013) and I liked it quite a bit. Thanks to 'ChocolateLover' for the submission. It's a fun idea using hot cocoa mix to flavor oatmeal. One thing to watch out for... depending on the sweetness of your hot cocoa packet, you might want to add just a little more sugar to this recipe. I used a fancy Salted Caramel Hot Cocoa Mix from Starbucks. It added an interesting flavor, but definitely needed a touch more sugar. No problem. I just stirred a teaspoon in after everything was mixed.

Chocolate Cookie Oatmeal

Turn instant oatmeal into something kind of fancy. This really tastes like a bowl of cookies. Choco-tastic! Secret ingredient: hot cocoa mix.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank ChocolateLover for this recipe.
