So here’s my rationale for this one. The French and the Italians always eat something very sweet for breakfast. It’s the holidays so we can be a little decadent. And, the oatmeal part is good for you!
These cookies from Michel et Augustin in the MARY’s secret ingredients winter box are so darn delicious, they really don’t need any help with a recipe. They’re made with only simple and real ingredients, as if you would make them in your own home. And the chocolate in each of them is super special! However, we always promise our product partners that we will create a new and exciting recipe or serving suggestion.
So for a super powerful breakfast, make yourself some steel cut Irish oatmeal. Then take two of these shortbread cookie squares, either flavor, cut them into chunks and place on top of the oatmeal. Wait a bit and watch the chocolate in the cookies begin to soften and melt into pure luxurious decadence!
OMG, so the shortbread gives a buttery crunch and the chocolate with the sea salt is just divine.
Oatmeal like this every morning?
If you have young ones, this is a terrific way to get them to eat their oatmeal. Promise.
Then for a further treat upon treat, fire up some marshmallows over your gas burner, take two cookies and have them face each chocolate side to each other and place that melty marshmallow in between and you have just made yourself THE most amazing s’more and you can tell the Girl Scouts to take a hike with their graham crackers and Hershey’s crappy chocolate variety.
