If you love brownies, chocolate chips and cookies then this recipe is for you. It was a recipe I received in the mail from Hershey’s many, many years ago. You probably have all the ingredients in your cupboard already. This recipe makes about three dozen cookies and won’t last long in our house!

Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 7-10 minutes or until cookies are set, but do not over bake. Only bake one cookie tray at a time on the center rack of the oven. Cookies should be soft and moist when done. Cool on the cookie sheet for 2 minutes then remove to a covered counter (I used foil). Cool completely and store in an air tight container.

    • Eric you can substitute butter or margarine in equal portions. It will have a much better taste but the texture will change some. I use butter in almost all my baked products but this was a Hershey recipe so I tried it as is.
