When a friend was describing what the perfect cookie would be if it existed, I decided to create a recipe to give her as a Christmas present. The following recipe is what I came up with and was a huge hit with her and her family.
In large mixing bowl, cream butter, peanut butter, 1 cup sugar and brown sugar until well blended. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Combine flour, cocoa and baking soda in a separate bowl; gradually add to creamed mixture just until combined. Stir in 1/2 cup pecans and mini chocolate chips.
Shape dough by tablespoonfuls around each Rolo. In a small bowl, combine remaining pecans and sugar; dip each cookie halfway into pecan mixture
Place cookie nut side up on ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 7-10 minutes or until top is slightly cracked. Cool for 3 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
