    1      c             margarine -- softened
    1      c             granulated sugar
    2      tsps          vanilla
    2      c             rolled oats -- uncooked
    1 1/4  c             unbleached flour
    2      c             M&Ms® plain chocolate candy
 
 Preheat oven to 350. Lightly spray 2 baking sheets with cooking spray; set
 aside. In a mixing bowl, combine margarine, sugar, and vanilla. In another
 mixing bowl, combine oats and flour. Mix wet ingredients with dry
 ingredients just until moistened. Divide dough in half. Pat each half of
 dough into heart shape about 1/4 thick on prepared baking sheets. To
 decorate, gently press M&M’s into dough in a pattern or phrase of your
 choice. With a sharp knife, cut through dough to form 10 random shapes. Do
 not separate. Bake for 18 minutes or until lighly browned. Carefully cut
 through pieces again to separate. Cool 5 minutes on baking sheet. Remove
 and cool completely on wire rack.
