Today I have another baked oatmeal recipe for you. This one is a special treat type of baked oatmeal though. This is a baked oatmeal that is perfect for the holidays, because it contains chocolate.
And during the holidays you can get by with feeding your kids chocolate for breakfast, right?! Just look at it this way, it is a sure way to get your kids to eat oatmeal.
If you are new to my site and my baked oatmeal recipes, you can find some helpful hints and all my baked oatmeal recipes in this post that I did on bake oatmeal facts and tips.
