Directions:
Cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time and the vanilla. Mix together the last 5 dry ingredients and add to creamed mixture. Add a 24 oz bag of chocolate chips, one 8oz Hershey bar, grated and 2-3 cups of chopped nuts.

Bake golf-ball sized cookies 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet at 375* for 11-12 minutes. Cookies will be only lightly browned and soft in the center. Allow to sit for a couple of minutes before removing from baking sheets.

This dough keeps well in an air-tight container in the refrigerator. For best results, allow the dough to chill for several hours before baking.

Personal Notes:
I have used many combinations of chocolate chips, chunks, nuts, coconut, chocolate covered nuts, bits-o-brickle, white chocolate, butterscotch or peanut butter chips, M&M's, minimorsels, chunks of candy bars, etc., as well as any kind of nut that you like. The varieties of cookies you create with this recipe are limited only by your imagination! DO NOT eliminate the grated chocolate bar as it imparts an important element in the cookie.
