Cocoa Kiss Cookies



I've been making these for years now, and they are always a hit with everyone (ESPECIALLY the chocoholics!)!

ALLERGY ALERT: Just in case of allergies, be sure to let everyone know that there ARE nuts in the dough (I always use ground pecans, so you really can't tell that they are in there).

* This picture is not mine (got from website recipe)! I lost all of my pictures, so I'll have to add one when I make these for this Christmas holiday.
