  • 1 cup butter or margarine, softened (250 mL)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar (250 mL)
  • 1 egg (1)
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract (2 mL)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla (2 mL)
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (500 mL)
  • 1/2 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa (125 mL)

    3. In medium bowl, mix flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt; gradually add to butter mixture, beating to form smooth dough.

    4. Stir in mini chocolate chips. If necessary, refrigerate dough about 1 hour or until firm enough to handle.
