Mocha Chips 'n Bits

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by WI Cheesehead

You can make with or without icing. Personally, I think it's easier, and just as yummy, to leave off the icing! Time doesn't include preparing applying icing.

Great cookies, I used semi-sweet baking chips in place of milk chocolate and butter in place of margarine and omitted the icing, also I increased the cocoa powder to 2 tablespoons, thanks for sharing Cheesy!...Kitten:)
