  • Beat butter and remaining sugar in large bowl with mixer until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and melted chocolate; mix well. Gradually beat in flour until blended. Add nuts and salt; mix well.
  • Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place, 1-1/2 inches apart, on baking sheets.

Size Wise

Enjoy a serving, 2 cookies, of these classic cookies on a special occasion.

Make it Easy

Use a blender or food processor to finely chop the pecans. Just be careful not to overprocess them or you'll end up with nut butter!

Special Extra

Place cookie dough on parchment-covered baking sheets to prevent cookies from sticking to pans and to help keep baking sheets clean between batches.


Does grating chocolate grate on your nerves? An easy alternative to make the grated chocolate/powdered sugar mixture is to chop the 2 oz. chocolate and add it to a blender or food processor along with the 1/2 cup powdered sugar. Use pulsing action to blend 1 min. or until mixture is very fine.


Prepare using PLANTERS Walnuts.
