If they had chocolate in them this might be the one because it has chopped nuts in them and maybe that's where 'nuggets' comes in? You know, gold nuggets found in a pirates treasure chest? ;-)
Golden Chocolate Treasure Cookies
1 1/2 cup Flour
3/4 tsp. Baking soda
3/4 tsp. Salt
3/4 cup Brown sugar
3/4 cup Butter, softened
1/2 ts Vanilla
10 oz (1-1/2 c.) semi-sweet
Treasures baking pieces
1 c Chopped pecans or walnuts
Beat brown sugar and butter until creamy, 3 to 5 minutes. Add egg and vanilla. Gradually blend in dry ingredients. Stir in Treasures and nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 375 for 8 to 10 minutes. Let stand 2 minutes before removing from sheets. Makes about 18 cookies, 2-1/2 inches.

Apparently someone else on the internet was looking for the same recipe a few years ago as per this link but I checked the archives and I guess no one wrote in with the recipe unfortunately.
