I searched all over for the perfect recipe for these cookies, and honestly they are recipes all over and in the end I morphed several recipes together. So here’s how I made them!
Yield: Around 4 dozen
2 cups sugar
1 1/4 cups butter
3/4 cup cocoa
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 – 1 1/2 cup(s) chocolate chips
1/2 – 3/4 cup chopped pecans
around 5 ounces of Rolo candy, or caramels, cut into fourths
1. Cream butter and sugar. Add all other ingredients, and mix well.
2. Drop by spoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets, and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 8-10 minutes. The cookies will be very soft when they are fully cooked!! If they are hardened already when you take them from the oven they will be crunchy, not chewy! I baked these for exactly 8 minutes and they were perfect.
3. Allow cookies to stay on hot cookie sheets for several minutes until they are firm enough to remove to wire racks to cool.
