Overnight Chocolate Oatmeal

We all understand how crazy busy mornings can be especially during the holidays.  How awesome would it be to wake up to a steaming bowl of Chocolate Oatmeal? We enjoy this several times a week, mixing it up with whatever fruit and nuts we have on hand. During the holidays I add dried cranberries for a seasonal flavor that our family and guests love.
