When I saw this recipe on My Tasty Treasures, I knew I would make them immediately. My husband, daughter and son all LOVE chocolate desserts – the richer the better. My son and I had a great time making these cookies while my daughter was at school. The cookies turned out rich and delicious – the pecans gave them a nice crunch. They were a huge hit with my family and disappeared quickly. Thanks for the great recipe Donna.Chocolate Pixies: Recipe and photos by For the Love of Cooking.net Original recipe by My Tasty Treasures and Kitchens Are Monkey Business
