In a small bowl, combine flour, cocoa, and baking soda; blend well. In a large bowl, beat 1 cup sugar, brown sugar, and margarine until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs; beat well. Add flour mixture; blend well. Stir in 1/2 cup of pecans (if desired). For each cookie, with floured hands, shape about 1 Tbs. of dough around caramel candy, covering completely.

In a small bowl, combine remaining 1/2 cup chopped pecans and 1 Tbs. sugar. Press 1 side of each ball into pecan mixture. Place, nut side up, 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 375 for 7-10 minutes or until set and slightly cracked. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheets. Cool completely on wire rack.

Place white chocolate in a Ziploc bag. Place in microwave in 30 second intervals until melted. Cut a tiny hole in the corner of the bag and drizzle chocolate onto cool cookies.
