Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup HERSHEY’S Cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/4 cups (2-1/2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

I made these the other day, and they are awesome!  You gotta love chocolate and peanut butter. Don’t make your cookie drop too big, they tend to fall apart after baking if too large.
