Heat oven to 375 degrees.
Combine Crisco, brown sugar, water and vanilla in large bowl. Beat at medium speed of electric mixer until well blended. Beat eggs into creamed mixture.
Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. Mix into creamed mixture at low speed just until blended. Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheet.
Bake one baking sheet at a time at 375 degrees for 7 to 9 minutes, or until cookies are set. DO NOT OVERBAKE. Cookies will appear soft and moist. Cool 2 minutes on baking sheet before removing to wire rack.
