 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    3                    To 3 1/2 cups sifted flour
      1/4   c            Sugar
    1       t            Salt
    1       pk           Active dry yeast
    1       c            Water
    2       tb           Butter
    1                    Egg
      1/2   c            Semi-sweet chocolate chips
    2       tb           Butter
      1/2   c            Pecans, chopped
 
   In a large bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups flour, sugar, salt and yeast.  Heat
   water and 2 Tbsp. butter until hot (120-130 degrees).  Add water mixture
   and egg to flour mixture and blend at low speed just until mixed. Continue
   mixing at high speed for 3 minutes.  Stir in as much remaining flour as you
   can until dough pulls cleanly away from sides of bowl.
   
   On floured surface, knead about 2 minutes.  Roll dough into a 15x7
   rectangle.  Melt chocolate chips and 2 Tbsp. butter together; cool and
   spread over rectangle.  Sprinkle with pecans.  Starting with long side,
   roll dough up jelly-roll fashion.  Cut into 12 slices.
   
   Sprinkle a greased 13x9 pan with Topping ingredients (to follow). Place
   dough slices on top.  Cover loosely with plastic wrap or a towel. Let rise
   in warm place until nearly double (35 to 40 minutes).  Bake at 375 degrees
   for 25 to 30 minutes; turn out onto a serving platter.  If desired, drizzle
   Chocolate Glaze (to follow) over the top of rolls.
   
   TOPPING:
   
   1/2  cup brown sugar 1/4 cup pecans, chopped 1/2 cup butter, softened 2 Tb

   In a small bowl, combine all topping ingredients and mix well.
   
   CHOCOLATE GLAZE:
   
   1/3  cup semi-sweet chocolate chips 1 Tb butter

   platter.
