Chocolate Icebox Cookies

Chocolate icebox cookies are enhanced with optional espresso powder and chopped pecans or walnuts.

Icebox cookies are such a convenience. Just shape the logs and refrigerate or freeze them until you're ready to bake. Slice and bake as many as you want -- wrap the log and place it back in the refrigerator or freezer for another day. This is a great reason to double the recipe!
