Chocolate Peanut Butter Candy Cookies

These chocolate peanut butter cookies are really yummy and perfect for the fall!

1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup chocolate flavored or regular peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
1 1/4 cups flour
1/4 cup unsweetened baking cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cup candy coated peanut butter candies

Mix dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, cocoa, and salt) in large bowl.  Set aside.
In large bowl, beat sugars and butter with electric mixer on medium speed until creamy.  Beat in peanut butter, vanilla and egg.

Stir in flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Stir in candies. Drop dough by heaping tablespoonfuls onto lightly greased cookie sheet.
Bake for 8-12 minutes (I baked mine for 11 minutes) at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Centers will still be soft. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack or wax paper. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.

ALSO!  I just switched to a different brand of butter and guess what I found when I opened the box?!
