This one always goes in my holiday baskets:

Chocolate Caramel Cookies
from Quick Cooking Magazine, Nov/Dec 1998

Makes about 5 dozen

1 cup butter, softened (no substitutes)
1 cup plus 1 tbl. sugar, divided
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup baking cocoa powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 cup chopped pecans, divided
1 package (13 oz.) Rolo candies

In a mixing bowl, cream butter, 1 cup sugar, and brown sugar. Add eggs and vanilla; mix well. Combine flour, cocoa and baking soda; add to creamed mixture and beat just until combined. Stir in 1/2 cup pecans. Shape dough by tablespoonfuls around each Rolo candy. In a small bowl, combine remaining pecans and sugar; dip each cookie halfway and place nut-side up on an ungreased baking sheet.
Bake at 375 degrees for 7-10 minutes or until top is slightly cracked. Cool 3 minutes then remove to racks to cool completely.

Inside me lives a skinny woman crying to get out, but I can usually shut her up with cookies!
