1

Beat butter, sugar, egg and vanilla in medium bowl until well blended. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; add to butter mixture, beating well. If necessary, refrigerate dough until firm enough to handle.

2

Remove wrappers from chocolate pieces. Heat oven to 350°F. Shape dough into 30 equal (about 1-inch) balls; roll in nuts. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.

TIP

Try rolling cookies in just one type nut or a combination of nuts.

3

Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until almost no imprint remains when touched lightly in center. Remove from oven; immediately press a chocolate piece into center of each cookie. Carefully remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. Chocolate should be set before storing.

Orange Variation: Add 3/4 teaspoon freshly grated orange peel to butter mixture.
