I have this oatmeal chocolate chip cookie dough...

..and I want to do something creative with it.

It went down like this: I'm in a book club, and I wanted to bring a sweet something that was decadent that didn't involve utensils to eat, but I needed it to be super easy as I only had about an hour to put it together the night before, in addition to getting regular dinner on the table and bathing two kids AND finishing the book. I remembered that a lot of people rave about those little cookie cups that involve nothing but refrigerated cookie dough with a miniature peanut butter cup plopped in the middle of them, googled it and added the items to my grocery list all ready to go.

Well, the store was out of pb cookie dough and the wonderful (I mean that in all sincerity, bless him!) hubby bought both chocolate chip and oatmeal chocolate chip instead . I used the choc chip to make the cookies and they were addictive. BUT, the book club was snowed out and postponed so the hubs and kiddos (and I) ended up finishing the lot of them off.

This Wednesday is the snow date for said book club, and I still have the oatmeal chocolate chip tube in the fridge and figure I may as well use it up. I don't have the bag of peanut butter cups as I used them in the first go...but my pantry is stocked with pretty well all other baking ingredients. I feel like just making cookies says "I couldn't be bothered to do more than bake refrigerated cookie dough" hence the reason I'm looking to put a twist on it, but there are almost no recipes out there involving the oatmeal variety (surprisingly, pillsbury doesn't even make this sort, it's a new one from president's choice here in Canada).

Any brilliant ideas? Thanks!!
