|1 cup||Butter or margarine; softened|
|1 cup||Firmly packed brown sugar|
|2¼ cup||All-purpose flour|
|1 teaspoon||Baking soda|
|2 teaspoons||Vanilla extract|

Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy; gradually add sugars, beating well. Add eggs, beating well.
Stir together flour, cocoa, and soda; add to butter mixture, mixing well.
Stir in vanilla and ½ cup pecans. Cover and chill 1 hour.
Combine remaining ½ cup pecans and 1 tablespoon sugar; set aside. Gently press 1 tablespoon cookie dough around each candy, forming a ball. Dip 1 side of cookie in pecan mixture. Place, pecan side up, 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.
