Swiss Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies



It was 7:00PM and I had a sweet tooth!! Raided the cupboard, perused Just A Pinch for some ideas and came up with this recipe. The best of two worlds collided - two flavors of Chocolate and Pecans. So-o-o-o moist and rich....and was super easy. Hubby and in-laws love them and I hope you do too!

Just a note: These freeze really well.
