Chocolate Pixie Cookie Recipe

Updated on January 6, 2013
Source

Fancy a pixie?

Chocolate pixies are similar to a warm, gooey brownie, but shaped and textured like a cookie. Pairing perfectly with a glass of milk or a cup of coffee, Chocolate Pixies are not a traditional choice for holiday baking, as there are buckeyes, peppermint twists, chocolate chip cookies for Santa, and pies, but once tried, may just become a chocolate favorite!

Ingredients

Serving Size: 4 dozen (or so)

Here are the basics for making Chocolate Pixies:

  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar (white, granulated)
  • 2 cups flour (all-purpose)
  • A dash of salt (less than 1/2 teaspoon; optional)
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 4 oz./squares (or more) unsweetened (baking) chocolate
  • 1+ cup confectioners sugar (however much is needed/desired!)

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees
  • Melt the unsweetened chocolate bars with butter (on the stove), using low to medium heat.
  • Once melted, mix in a bowl with the (granulated) sugar and and eggs, stirring well when adding each ingredient.
  • Sift the salt, flour, and baking soda together, and then add to the bowl with the other ingredients
  • Refrigerate the mixture for 1-2 hours, or more, if needed
  • Once the mixture is hardened, roll individual dough balls (balls should be about the size of a teaspoon)
  • Roll the dough balls through a small bowl of confectioners sugar
  • Place dough balls on to a lightly greased/oiled baking sheet/pan
  • For added texture/look once fully-cooked, press a fork lightly into each of the dough balls
  • Bake 10-12 minutes at 300 degrees
  • Let cool once done

*Make sure not to overcook, as Chocolate Pixies are supposed to be a bit soft (fudgy) in the center!

Ready to be enjoyed!

Why I Love Chocolate Pixies

Every holiday season, my mother and I bake cookies and desserts together. Not only for ourselves to enjoy, but to give. My parents always give a plate of cookies to the security guards at our local Air Force Base, on Christmas. Desserts are also given to friends, family, and neighbors.

Chocolate Pixies entered the traditional bake-a-thon about three or four years ago, along with chocolate covered pretzels. Easy to make, fun to watch bake (as the chocolate cracks and the confectioners sugar separates, without somehow penetrating the cracks), and yummy to eat. Not only is it a comforting, now nostalgic recipe to make, but is great to give as a gift, or to uplift someone's spirits, regardless of the time of year.

      We always fill holiday cookie tins with a variety of treats for our neighbors and relatives and I think chocolate pixies would be a good addition (if we don't eat them all before we pack them). Thanks for the recipe.
