Chocolate and Pecan cookies

MMMmmmmm, nothing taste better than some corperate espionage.
For this recipe you will need:
1 rival blogger
200g chocolate , broken into squares
100g butter , chopped
50g light muscovado sugar
85g golden caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg , beaten
100g whole pecans
100g plain flour
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 very low moral compass (can't emphasise how much this is needed)

1. Hope a rival posts what they are going to do before they actually post the thing. Then take a picture and recipe of whatever they are making and post it before, e.g.,

2. Heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Melt 85g chocolate in the microwave on High for 1 min or over a pan of simmering water.

3. Beat in the butter, sugars, vanilla and egg until smooth, then stir in three-quarters of both the nuts and remaining chocolate, then the flour and bicarbonate of soda.

4. Heap 12 spoonfuls, spaced apart, on 2 baking sheets (don't spread the mixture), then poke in the reserved nuts and chocolate. Bake for 12 mins until firm, then leave to cool on the sheets. Can be stored in a tin for up to 3 days.

5. Sit back and take credit if they then post their blog claim they stole the idea from you.
