Let's Make It
Mix flour, baking soda and salt; set aside. Microwave chocolate and butter in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH 2 min. or until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted.

Dessert can be a part of a balanced diet, but remember to keep tabs on portions.
Jam-Filled Chocolate Sugar Cookies
Omit 1/2 cup of the sugar. Prepare dough and shape into balls as directed. Roll in 1/2 cup chopped PLANTERS Pecans instead of the sugar. Place, 2 inches apart, on baking sheets. Make indentation in each ball; fill center with your favorite jam. Bake as directed.
Place cookie dough on parchment-covered baking sheets to prevent cookies from sticking to pans and to help keep baking sheets clean between batches.
Chocolate-Caramel Sugar Cookies
Omit 1/2 cup of the sugar. Prepare dough and shape into balls as directed. Roll in 1/2 cup chopped PLANTERS Pecans instead of the sugar. Place, 2 inches apart, on baking sheets. Make indentation in each ball. Bake as directed. Microwave 1 pkg. (14 oz.) KRAFT Caramels and 2 Tbsp. milk in microwaveable bowl on HIGH 3 min. or until caramels are completely melted, stirring after 2 min. Spoon into centers of cookies. Drizzle with melted BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate. Cool completely.
If thinner crisper cookies are desired, flatten balls of dough on baking sheet with bottom of clean glass before baking as directed.
