Chunky Chocolate Cookies

I made these most recently with sour cherries and hazelnuts, so that's what's going in the recipe. You can omit the fruit or change it out for something else or change to different nuts. The cookies won't mind.

2 sticks butter

1 1/2 c. sugar

2 eggs

2 t. vanilla

2 c. flour

2/3 c. cocoa

3/4 t. baking soda

1/4 t. salt

12 oz. chocolate chips

1/2 c. chopped hazelnuts

1/2 c. dried sour cherries

Preheat oven to 350 F. Beat butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla until fluffy. Stir together dry ingredients and add to the butter mix. Stir in the chunky things. Drop in tablespoons onto ungreased sheets (but parchment paper never hurts). Bake 8-10 minutes . Cool slightly and remove to wire rack. Cool completely.
