Colón Family Cookbook

This recipe comes to us from... well ....everywhere, but this actual copy came for Judy!  I think most of us know the story of the "Neiman-Marcus" recipe and, as untrue as the story maybe, the recipe itself is that fabulous!  These cookies are like having a chocolate-chip and oatmeal cookie all in one.  For those of us who may have an aversion to chocolate, Sue has provided us some variations that, although I haven't tried them myself (yet!) sound great too.   Now after making these cookies so many times I do have some helpful hints.   This recipe may be halved and is recommended unless your cooking them for an army.   Also, I recommend putting the candy bars in the refrigerator before you start grating them, unless you prefer to lick all the melted chocolate off your fingers!
