Chocolate Heath Bar Pecan Bombs
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F
2 1/4 cups flour
2/3 cup sweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) of butter, softened
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1/2 cup or more of health bar pieces (that's all I had of the Nestle ones you buy in the package but if I had more I'd add 1 whole cup)
1 cup chopped pecans
Sift together cocoa powder (I used Ghiradelli which is sweetened so if you only have unsweetened just increase the brown and white sugar like 2/3 cup brown and 1/2 cup white .), flour, baking soda and salt. Beat butter, brown and white sugars and vanilla extract in a large mixer bowl until creamy.
Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in the heath bits and pecans. Drop by well-rounded teaspoon onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake until centers are set. Mine took 15 minutes. Cool for 2 minutes then remove to wire rack and cool completely. Store in airtight container.
