Chocolate Pixies

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.

    Hi Pam – made these over the weekend and they were really good. I usually like my cookies to be ultra sweet, but I found that I liked these a lot. The powered sugar is probably what did it. And they look so cool. Big hit with the kids, of course.
