 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      sticks        butter
      1/4  cup           sugar
      1/4  cup           packed light brown sugar
      1/2  teaspoon      vanilla
    2      cups          all purpose flour
      1/2  cup           pecans -- coarsely chopped
    1      12 oz pkg     chocolate chips
    1      or 2 tbsp     milk
 
 Cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy; blend in vanilla.  Add flour
 and mix only until blended; dough will be stiff.  Stir in pecans and 1 cup
 semi-sweet chocolate chip pieces.  Press dough into 13 x 9-inch pan. Sprinkle
 top with 1/3 cup baking bits; press lightly into dough. Bake 18 to 20 minutes
 or until light golden brown. Cool completely. 
 
 Drizzle with CHOCOLATE GLAZE. Cut into bars. Store in tightly covered
 container. 
 
 CHOCOLATE GLAZE:
 Place remaining semi-sweet chocolate chips in a microwave proof container; add
 1 tablespoon milk. Heat 30 seconds on HIGH; stir until chocolate is completely
 melted and mixture is smooth; blend in additional milk, 1 teaspoonful at a
 time, to reach desired consistency. Pour mixture into a zipper-type plastic
 sandwichbag;
 close bag tightly, removing all air. Snip a tiny piece off one corner of the
 bag (not more than 1/8 inch). Holding top of bag tightly, drizzle glaze in
 desired pattern.
