They might look like a cookie, but they aren't quite a cookie. They're full of HERSHEY'S Cocoa, but they aren't brownies either. What they are is chocolatey, chewy and full of crunchy KIT KAT® Miniatures. They're the perfect mix of two of your favorite desserts.
Heat oven to 375°F. Cut candy bar minis in half; set aside.
Beat shortening, brown sugar and vanilla in large bowl on medium speed of mixer until well blended. Add eggs; beat well.
Stir together flour, cocoa, salt and baking soda. Gradually add to sugar mixture, beating on low speed just until blended. Stir in candy pieces and walnuts, if desired. Drop by rounded tablespoons 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until cookies are set. Cookies will appear soft and moist. Do not over bake. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.
