2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 cup unsweetened baking cocoa

1 teaspoon baking soda

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 375°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine 1 tablespoon milk and 1 1/2 teaspoons espresso powder in small bowl; set aside.

  3. STEP 3

    Combine butter, sugar and brown sugar in bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Add dissolved espresso powder mixture and eggs; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour, cocoa and baking soda. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Stir in chopped pecans, if desired.

    With lightly floured hands, shape dough into 48 (1 1/4-inch) balls. Place balls into lightly greased mini muffin pan cups. Bake 6-8 minutes or until puffed and set. (Do not overbake.)
