Barb's StoryI will post this recipe as it was originally created. At the end, I will put my substitutions. This is an all around great chocolate cookie. Customize it to your liking.
1 1/2 c
1In mixing bowl, beat margarine, sugar, eggs and vanilla until fluffy.
2Add flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt.
3Stir in chocolate chips and nuts
4Drop onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
Very rarely do I make this recipe as is. I usually omit the nuts and use some kind of mint chip. Andeas, Hershey dark chocolate mint, Andeas Pepermint stick chips or white chips

I am always on the lookout for a good chocolate cookie as a change from the usual cookie jar faves so I will try this soon. Great idea on the addition of the Andes product items, the peppermint chips would be great for Christmas, making the recipe so seasonal. Peanut butter chips would also be great in this and I always like the addition of Heath toffee bits to many of my recipes - "ups" the yum factor.
