We made these for Cinco de Mayo. They are chocolately with a nice kick to them. You could also make my Key Lime Pie Cupcakes for a nice dessert that would go well with a Mexican theme. (https://myegglessworld.wordpress.com/2013/07/21/key-lime-pie-cupcakes/)
Spicy Chocolate cookies
- 1/2 cup softened butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup Nutella (you can replace this with melted chocolate chips if you are nut allergic)
- 1/2 cup plain yogurt (equivalent to 2 eggs)
- 2 tsp vanilla
Mix well and then add sifted dry ingredients:
- 2 cups flour
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- pinch cayenne pepper
Once the dry ingredients are mixed in, add a generous cup of chocolate chips and mix again.
Spoon onto parchment lined baking sheets. Bake 350 degrees F for approximately 10 minutes.
