1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl combine butter and shortening. Beat with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add brown sugar, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Beat until combined, scraping side of bowl occasionally. Beat in eggs, melted chocolate, and vanilla until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Using a wooden spoon, stir in any remaining flour, the chopped bittersweet and/or semisweet chocolate, and pecans.
