We got this great recipe right off the Quaker Oats box many years ago.  Instructions:  Pre-heat oven to 350ºF.  Mix group A (sugar, butter, egg, vanilla) in a large mixing bowl.  Mix group B (flour, cocoa, soda, salt) in a separate mixing bowl.  Add group B to bowl with Group A, mix until well blended.  To this dough add group C (oats, chocolate chips, nuts) and mix well.  Chill finished dough mix for one hour.  Roll dough into balls (about 2 Tablespoons per ball) and place on no-stick cookie sheet.  Bake at 350ºF for 10-12 minutes.  Be sure to have plenty of cold milk on hand when serving.
