Chocolate Pixies

1/4 cup margarine, or butter
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 eggs

In a large saucepan over low heat, melt margarine and chocolate, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat; cool slightly. Lightly spoon flour into a measuring cup; level off. Stir in flour, sugar, walnuts, baking powder, salt, and eggs; blend in well. Cover; refrigerate at least 1 hour for easier handling. Heat oven to 300 degrees. Shape mixture into 1 inch balls; roll in powdered sugar (coat heavily). Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 300 degrees for 15 - 18 minutes or until edges are set. Remove from the cookie sheets immediately. Makes 4 dozen cookies
