Triple Chocolate Ovaltine Cookies

These cookies are a chocoholics dream come true.
With three types of chocolaty goodness in them,
some crunchy oatmeal thrown in for good measure.
Adding some semi-sweet chocolate chips puts these
cookies over the top in good chocolate flavors.
The cookie dough is easy to roll in your hands.
These triple chocolate cookies look and taste great
and adding in chocolate extract is simply awesome!

1/4 cup oatmeal
