Chocolate-lovers will enjoy these nutty cookies made with chocolate chips and bars - a perfect dessert.
bag (24 oz) semisweet chocolate chips (4 cups)
package (6 oz) white chocolate baking bars
cup butter or margarine (2 sticks), room temperature
cup packed brown sugar
cups all-purpose flour
teaspoons baking soda
cup pecan or walnut halves
Heat the oven to 350°F. In a 1-quart saucepan, heat 1 1/2 cups of the chocolate chips over low heat, stirring constantly, until melted. Cool to room temperature, about 15 minutes, but do not allow chocolate to become firm. Meanwhile, cut the white chocolate baking bars into 1/4- to 1/2-inch chunks; set aside.
In a large bowl, beat the butter, brown sugar and vanilla with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs and melted chocolate until light and fluffy. With a wooden spoon, stir in the flour, baking soda and salt. Stir in the remaining 2 1/2 cups chocolate chips, the white chocolate chunks and pecan halves.
For each cookie, spoon dough into a 1/4-cup dry-ingredient measuring cup and level off with a knife. On an ungreased cookie sheet, drop the dough about 2 inches apart.
Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until set (centers will appear soft and moist). Cool on cookie sheet 2 minutes, then remove from cookie sheet to a cooling rack, using a turner. Cool cookie sheets between batches.

Use 1 package (5 oz) milk chocolate candy bar, cut into 1/4- to 1/2-inch chunks, instead of the white chocolate baking bars.
To save time, use 1 cup white vanilla baking chips (from a 12-oz bag) instead of chopping the white chocolate baking bars.
Place the baking bar on a cutting board. Using a chef's knife, chop the bar into 1/4- to 1/2-inch chunks.
