    2 1/2  cups          flour
      3/4  cup           cocoa
    1      tsp           baking soda
    1      cup           sugar
    1      cup           brown sugar
    1      cup           butter  -- softened
    2      tsp           vanilla
    2                    eggs
    1      cup           pecans  -- finely chopped
   48                    Rolo candies
    1      Tb            sugar
 
 
 Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  In small bowl, combine flour, cocoa, and
 baking soda.  Mix well.  In large bowl, beat the sugars and butter until
 light and fluffy.  Add vanilla and eggs; beat well.  Add flour mixture;
 blend well.  Stir in 1/2 cup of pecans.
 For each cookkie, with floured hands, shape about 1 Tb of dough around a
 Rolo, covering completely.
 In small bowl, combine rest of pecans and 1 Tb sugar.  Press one side of
 each ball in pecan/sugar mixture.  Place nut side up on ungreased cookie
 sheet, 2 inches apart.  Bake 7 - 10 minutes or until set and slightly
 cracked.  Cool on cookie sheet 2 minutes, then remove and cool completely
 on wire racks.

 NOTES :  1 pkg of Rolo candies has 48 in it.  I buy 2 packages to allow for some
being eaten during the baking process and because I can get more than 4 dozen
cookies out of the dough.
