1. Cream together butter and both types of sugar. Add beaten eggs and vanilla.

2. In a separate bowl, mix flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt.

3. Add dry ingredients to the butter and sugar mixture.

4. Press all the air out of the dough with your fingers or a spatula. Mold into 2-inch balls, arranging them across a greased cookie sheet 2 inches apart. Use a fork to puncture holes in the cookie dough. These holes help keep the cookie flat and easy to work with.
