Preheat Oven 

In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, flour, cold diced butter, chopped pecans, and chocolate chips. Mix with a fork or your fingers until crumbly. Set aside. 

Prepare Streusel Topping 

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together buttermilk, melted butter, eggs, and vanilla extract. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
