  • 3/4 cup butter softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 2 cups finely chopped nuts (we use pecans)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. Combine 3/4 cup butter, sugar & vanilla; beat well. Add egg and beat thoroughly. 

  3. Stir in flour and salt. Mix well. Stir in 1/2 cup chocolate chips (maybe just a few more than that, just sayin').

  4. Shape dough into 2-inch logs. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes.

  5. Chocolate Coating: Melt remaining 1 T. butter and 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips (can also use semi-sweet baking squares) over hot water (or in microwave). Stir until smooth and blended.

  6. Dip each end of baked (cooled) cookie into chocolate mix and roll into nuts. If you don't like nuts, skip the last step and stick with just the chocolate cover.
