This cookie has become a much anticipated addition to my Christmas cookie platter. I follow the recipe exactly but I make them bite size and just bake them for 15 minutes. Delicious~!

These were pretty good. I was concerned with the little amount of sugar at first, but when measuring I didn't completely level it, so it added a little extra to my recipe. I thought they were going to be more like a chocolate pecan sandie cookie. But, they tasted just like a "chocolate version of a snowball cookie." I used a 1 Tblsp. cookie scoop and put the cookies on parchment instead of a sprayed pan. I got 32 baked cookies from the recipe. When cool I did coat them with the powdered sugar, but it took about twice as much as instructed. Thanks again, MARBALET for another simple to follow and good recipe. As they remind me of snowballs, I may make these as a Christmas cookie this year.

I made these today and they turned out great! This is a keeper, I followed the recipe as written. I thought the dough was a bit loose so I chilled for an hour before forming my balls.

I followed this recipe to the letter. These were good, but almost too crumbly. They fall apart as soon as they're bitten, but at least they taste good as they crumble.

Excellent little cookie, I love how the cocoa taste comes through! I added sliced almonds instead of pecans cause that's what I had on hand, they came out very tasty! Also I have made these twice and did not bother with the powdered sugar, they still were great tasting without being overly sweet!

This is a great recipe! I used peanuts instead of pecans because that's what I had and it turned out wonderful. Thank you Holly!

These were a nice change. This was one of 9 recipes that we baked this holiday. They held up well.
