Just take out the cherry flavoring and you have a super yummy chocolate cookie base for any kind of chipped cookies.

1 1/4 cups butter, softened
2 cups white sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons cherry flavoring or cherry juice (optional)
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 packages Andes cherry jubilee candies, chopped to chip size

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla ad cherry flavoring. Sift together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt; stir into the creamed mixture. Mix in the cherry candies. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake 8 to 9 minutes in the preheated oven. Cookies will be soft. Cool slightly on cookie sheet (important step or they will fall apart!); remove from sheet onto wire rack to cool completely.
