Oatmeal Chocolate Cookies

These are another recipe that my mom made when we were growing up.  It's a great recipe to make after Halloween when you have all of the left over mini Hershey candy bars.  If you use the mini candy bars you will need one for each cookie, so plan on more than 5(that is for small full size candy bars).  This one is a keeper, it's like a really good Oatmeal cookie but with Chocolate... what could be better?

1 c. butter
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
2 c. flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp. soda
1 1/2 c. rolled oats
1 c. coconut
5 small Hershey bars

Cream butter, sugar, eggs & vanilla. Mix flour, salt, & soda in separate bowl then add to creamed picture. Stir in oats and coconut. Shape into balls and put on un-greased cookie sheet then flatten slightly. Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes. Remove from oven and place one square of Hershey chocolate on each cookie. After chocolate is soft spread on cookie.
