Ghoulishly Good Cookies....

I have an old stand-by chocolate cookie recipe that I adapted last night into a Halloween recipe. I know, a bit early, but I wanted to give it a test run, so I could share it on here, in case anyone else wanted to try it!
I found these great new Halloween M&M's at K-Mart the other night, and their colors are so cool! Much better than the traditional orange and black, these also contain a slime green color, and a great purple color!!

Of course, being the peanut butter lover I am, I also added some Reese's Peanut Butter chips to the recipe!

Ghoulishly Good Cookies
2 cups All-purpose flour
3/4 cup cocoa
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/4 cups butter or margerine
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
Half bag of peanut butter chips
Half bag of Halloween M&M's

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix flour, cocoa, soda and salt.
Beat butter and sugar in a large bown until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla. Beat well. Gradually add flour mixture, beating well. Stir in M&M's and peanut butter chips by hand.
Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8-9 minues. (Do not overbake; cookies will be soft. They will puff while baking and flatten while cooling.) Cool slightly and transfer to a cooling rack.

**I placed extra M&M's on the tops of the cookie dough before placing them in the oven!**

Here is how they came out!!

And here is the Code Man taste testing one RIGHT BEFORE SUPPER!! Doing his best to look like a complete goofball!!
Please, try my recipe and let me know what you think!!
