Chocolate Chewy Cookies

Chocolate Chewy Cookies = Yummy! (Pics below!)

1 1/4 c. softened butter
2 c. sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
2 c. flour
3/4 c. Hershey cocoa
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 c. chocolate chips (or peanut butter or white chips) (optional)

*Heat oven to 350 degrees.
*Cream butter and sugar in large mixer bowl. Add eggs and vanilla then blend well. In separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Blend into creamed mixture. Add chips. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheet.
*Bake 8 to 9 minutes until done - do not overbake. Cookies will be soft.
Cookies will puff during baking and flatten when they are cooling. Cool on cookie sheet until set, about 1 minute. Remove to wire rack to cool completely. Makes approx. 4 1/2 dozen.

Frosting is optional :P

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine
2/3 cup Hershey’s cocoa
3 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Melt butter, stir in cocoa. Alternately add powdered sugar and milk, beating to spreading consistency. Add small amount of additional milk, if needed. Stir in vanilla. Makes about 2 cups frosting.

Aww....chewy goodness :)
I didn't use any chips with these, instead I opted for the chocolate frosting!
But both are absolutely fine!

What are chewy chocolate cookies without a little homemade chocolate frosting anyway?!
