Mmmmm..... Chocolate Pixes. If a brownie were a cookie, this is what it would look like. Amazingly delicious. My mom used to fill the cookie jar with these. I revamped the recipe with cocoa powder, which is always available in my kitchen.

This recipe was perfect! My family LOVED these! Just as good, if not better than my Grandma's recipe. I was a little skeptical about using the cocoa powder and oil instead of the usual bakers chocolate but they were a huge hit! They were gone the next day!

My family loved these cookies! My youngest is a chocoholic and they were a big hit with him! Am keeping this recipe in my cookbook and will be making them again. Too good to wait until Christmas to make!
