METHOD

Heat oven to 375°. Mix both sugars, butter, vanilla & egg in large bowl. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt (dough will be stiff). Stir in nuts and chocolate chips.

Drop dough by rounded Tablespoons about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light brown (centers will be soft). Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet. Cool on wire rack.

Melt milk chocolate using microwave method: Place the chocolate chips into a wide, shallow microwave-safe bowl. Microwave the chocolate on medium power for 1 minute, then stir. Continue heating the chocolate at 10 to 15-second intervals, stirring between each one, until it is almost melted.

Remove from microwave and stir until no chunks remain. To decorate: Dip cookies into melted chocolate and then into chopped walnuts; cool on platter.
