  • 1 egg (1)
  • 1 tsp vanilla (5 mL)

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In large bowl, beat butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla until creamy.
  3. In medium bowl, mix together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Add to butter mixture, beating until blended. Stir in chocolate chips and pecans.
  4. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls (15 mL) onto greased cookie sheets. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until set. Let cool for 5 minutes on sheets, then transfer to rack and cool completely.

Tip:

  • For an even greater burst of chocolate taste, substitute Baking Chips with Chunks.
  • Use your favourite nut — pecans, walnuts, almonds and hazelnuts all taste great.
