1 cup butterscotch chips
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup butter, softened
2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
MELT butterscotch chips in small saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly until smooth.
COMBINE sugar, brown sugar, butter and melted chips in large bowl; beat until smooth. Add milk, vanilla and egg; blend well. Add flour; mix well. Divide dough in half. To half of dough, stir in cocoa until well blended. Wrap each half of dough in plastic wrap; refrigerate 1 hour for easier handling.

Refrigerate cutouts 15 minutes. Using small leaf-shaped cookie cutter, cut out center of each round cutout; replace with center of opposite color.
