Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup chopped pecans, divided
  • 6 (2-ounce) packages chocolate-caramel cookie bars, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 (2-ounce) vanilla bark coating squares

Preparation

  1. Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy; gradually add sugars, beating well. Add eggs, 1 at a time, and vanilla, beating until blended after each addition.
  2. Combine flour, cocoa, and soda; add to butter mixture, beating at low speed until blended after each addition. Stir in 1/2 cup pecans. Shape 1 tablespoon dough around each candy piece, covering completely, to form balls.
  3. Combine remaining 1/2 cup pecans and 1 tablespoon sugar. Gently press the top of each ball into pecan mixture. Place balls, pecan sides up, 2 inches apart on baking sheets.
  4. Bake at 375° for 7 to 10 minutes. Cool on baking sheets 2 minutes. Remove from baking sheets; cool completely on wire racks.
  5. Melt coating squares in a saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly until smooth. Drizzle over cookies.
