1 c butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2t vanilla
2 1/4 cups flour
3/4 c cocoa
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1 c white chocolate chips and/or macadamia nuts, optional

In a large bowl cream together butter and sugar.  Add eggs and vanilla and mix.  In a separate bowl combine flour, coca, soda, and salt.  Add dry ingredients to butter mixture and mix until combined.  Add white chocolate chips/nuts.  Roll into 1" balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake 350 degrees 8-9 minutes (do not overbake... They will be soft).  Let cool on cookie sheet for a few minutes before moving to a wire rack. 

For something different try a mint sandwich cookie, here is the frosting recipe...
