Chocolate Butterscotch Cookies aka Andrea's Birthday Cookies

I made these for Andrea's birthday, per her request.  They were quite the hit with everyone!

3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup cocoa powder

Drop by spoonful onto baking sheets.  Bake for 7 minutes.  Allow to site for 2 minutes on a baking sheet before moving to racks to cool.
