Death by Chocolate Cookies

This cookie is definitely a winner. I was concerned at first that there would be too much chocolate, but it did turn out ok and did have a rich chocolate flavor. These cookies have the Kraft Caramel Bits and some pecans. The caramel bits were on sale and I picked them up for cookie recipes like this one.

1 cup butter (I used 1/2 shortening and butter)
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup dry milk powder
2 eggs 
1 T vanilla
1 cup cocoa
2 cups flour
1 t baking soda
1 t salt 
1/2 cup nuts (optional)
Cookie rolled in sugar before baking
1 cup caramel bits (optional, you could also used chocolate or white chocolate chips)

Combine butter, sugar, dry milk, eggs, and vanilla. Add cocoa, flour, baking soda, and salt. Once combined add your nuts and caramel bits.

Drop by round teaspoonfuls on greased cookie,

OR you could form into one inch balls and roll in sugar. Flatten the cookie slightly and bake in 350 degree oven for about 8 minute until done.
