12 Days of Yummies: Milk Chocolate Florentine Cookies

Day 3
I don't think that I have ever made anything that my husband has so consistently and quickly devoured.  These are definately his favorite and there's a good reason for that...they're so stinkin' good!!

  • 2/3 cup butter
  • 2 cups quick oats
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup light or dark corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 cups (11.5 ounce pkg) milk chocolate morsels
Preheat oven to 375°. Melt butter in medium saucepan; remove from heat. Stir in oats, granulated sugar, flour, corn syrup, milk, vanilla, and salt; mix well. Drop by level teaspoon about 3 inches apart onto foil-lined baking sheets. Spread thinly with rubber spatula. Bake for 6-8 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely on baking sheets on wire racks. Peel foil from cookies. Microwave morsels in medium, microwave-safe bowl on Medium-High (70%) power for 1 minute; stir. Microwave at additional 10-20 second intervals, stirring until smooth. Spread thin layer of melted chocolate onto flat side of half the cookies. Top with remaining cookies, placing flat side against chocolate (like a sandwich).

Serves about 3 1/2 dozen sandwich cookies.

We've made these a couple times (thanks for the recipe!) and the kids LOVE them! (the dough is really good too, hehe)
