Mrs. Richardson’s® Dark Chocolate, Cherry, and Almond Overnight Oats

Featuring: Mrs. Richardson’s® Dark Chocolate Dessert Sauce

There’s nothing more satisfying than a bowl of oatmeal to get your day started right. But let’s be honest, this breakfast-time classic could use a dash of fun and a spoonful of Mrs. Richardson’s®. Prep a batch of this creamy, chocolate-lover’s paradise in just a few minutes and you’ll be set with a hearty morning meal for the whole week.


  • 2 Tablespoons Mrs. Richardson’s® Dark Chocolate Dessert Sauce, plus more for topping
  • 1/2 cup milk of your choice–almond, cashew, dairy, or oat milk, plus more if desired
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats (not quick cook or instant)
  • 2 Tablespoons dried cherries
  • 1 Tablespoon slivered almonds, toasted


Step 1: Place Mrs. Richardson’s® Dark Chocolate Dessert Sauce and milk into an 8-ounce (or larger) jar. Microwave on high until warm, but not hot, about 15 to 30 seconds.

Step 2: Cap securely and shake until well-combined, about 15-20 seconds of shaking.

Step 3: Open jar carefully and add oats, cherries, and almonds. Stir to combine, cap securely, and place in refrigerator. Refrigerate overnight.

Step 4: In the morning, open jar and stir. If desired, top with additional Mrs. Richardson’s® Dark Chocolate Dessert Sauce and/or thin oats with additional milk.
