White-chocolate pecan chocolate crinkles

I was searching for cookie recipes for 2 baskets I needed to make. One for my parent's neighbor who lost a father and one for new neighbors that moved in behind our house. So I came across for this recipe for Brown Sugar Chocolate Crackle Cookies. They were really flat, but really good!

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (I used milk chocolate as it's what I had)
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil (used 1/3c since that's what some comments had said)
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (I used pecans)and I also stirred in a cup of white chocolate chips
1/2 cup sifted confectioners' sugar

Melt the chocolate chips and combine with the brown sugar and vegetable oil. Add the eggs one at a time and beat well. Stir in the vanilla.
Combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Add flour mixture to the chocolate mixture. Stir in the chopped walnuts. Chill dough for a few hours.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease baking sheets.
Drop teaspoonfuls of dough in confectioners' sugar and roll to coat. Place cookies on the prepared baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 10 to 12 minutes. Let cookies cool on racks.
