Grandma's Recipes One By One!

Chocolate Pixies

on August 26, 2016


The recipe for today comes from one of Grandma’s sisters. I was not familiar with these cookies, but my son said, “aren’t those the ones that are minty?” Apparently he’s had these somewhere at Christmastime and they had a mint flavor. This particular recipe is not minty. I haven’t made these before and they were easy to do (even with several steps involved) though a bit soft when it came time to make the balls. Boy, these Chocolate Pixies are good!

These are absolutely delicious!

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Chocolate Pixies

Sift together:

2 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking soda

2 teaspoons salt

Melt together:

1/4 cup butter

4 squares unsweetened chocolate

Cool slightly.

Mix all together with:

2 cups sugar

4 eggs, one at a time

Beat for 1 minute.


1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

Mix well.

Chill 15 minutes.

Shape into balls using 1 teaspoon dough for each ball (this seemed so small to me -I used a tablespoon measure).

Roll in powdered sugar.

Put balls on greased baking sheets.

Bake at 300 degrees for 18-20 minutes (I added a couple of extra minutes since I made a bit of a bigger ball).


Even after chilling for 15 minutes, the dough was very soft, so I rolled them into balls with the powdered sugar on and then rolled them in it again for a final coating.


After they’re baked, they have a beautiful crackle look to them!


These cookies are so good, they could definitely be Christmas cookies – just add some peppermint extract (start with 1 teaspoon and see if that’s enough) to them.


Do you have any chocolate lovers in your life? Make them a batch of these chocolatey, fudgy, delicious cookies. They’re so worth it!
