And yes, you can freeze these.
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 ½ 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.
Note: 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.
