Chocolate Pecan Kisses
A good friend gave me this recipe and I, in turn, have shared it with many others. It's a very easy recipe to make up makes a lot of cookies. They are sometimes called "forgotten" cookies, because you can make them at night and not take them out of the oven until the next morning.
