For the chocolate dough, in another large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.

Divide each portion in half. Knead one peanut butter and one chocolate portion together 5-10 times or until it just begins to swirl. Shape into a 10-in. l/. Wrap in plastic wrap. Repeat with remaining dough. Refrigerate 3-4 hours or until firm.

Preheat oven to 350. Unwrap and cut into 1/4-in. slices. Place 2 inches apart on lightly greased baking sheets. Bake 6-8 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned. Cool 2 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Yield: about 6-1/2 dozen.
