In a separate bowl, combine oats, flour, baking powder and Nesquik cocoa. Add the dry ingredients to the butter-egg mixture, and mix until the dough comes together. Add extra flour if the dough is sticky. Wrap the dough in plastic paper and refrigerate for 1 hour. (P and K)
Dust a rolling pin and cookie shapes with flour, and sprinkle more flour on a clean work surface.
Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Roll out the dough to about 1/2 cm thickness, and cut out into fun shapes. Repeat the process with the remaining dough. Arrange the biscuits on the tray. (P and K)
Bake for 8-10 minutes. Let it cool on a rack. (P)
If you want to decorate the cookies, first melt dark chocolate pieces over a bath of hot water.
Half-dip the cooled biscuits into the melted chocolate and arrange on parchment paper. Decorate with sprinkles and refrigerate until chocolate is set! (P and K)
