  1. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and cream cheese. Stir in the flour until well blended. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least one hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Melt chocolate and margarine together in the microwave, stirring frequently until smooth. Beat in the brown sugar, egg and vanilla until well blended. Stir in the pecans.
  3. Roll the chilled dough into 1 inch balls and press them into the bottom and up the sides of ungreased mini muffin tins. Spoon about 1 teaspoon of filling into each cup.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until edges are browned. Cool in pans on wire racks for 15 minutes before removing from muffin tins.

Thought they were pretty easy to make, although the crust could have used more oomph. My husband couldn't get enough. Made two batches over Thanksgiving weekend and we ended up having dessert one evening with slightly sweetened whipped cream. We just dipped them in and yum!

Wonderful, light, flakey crust. The chocolate flavor gives these cookies their special compliment to the cream cheese crust.

Tedious to make. Filling was like a dry, bland brownie. Bummer. Crust was ok & I might try it w/a different filling--lemon maybe.

These are DELICIOUS! I added extra cream cheese frosting (obviously w/ a little red, white, and blue food dye for the 4th of July), and, although it made them very rich, it was a fun treat and a surprising hit! Great recipe, ThreeDogKitchen.

I made them without the confectioners sugar and the inside turned out very bland. I just tasted the cocoa and crunch. The shell was also very dry.
