Teresa's notes for this recipe:
One of the things I love most in the colder months is a Mexican Hot Chocolate! Chocolate, cinnamon and a little kick from cayenne! These cookies were inspired by that flavor! YUM!!

The delightful *hint* of cayenne hits you a few moments after you take a bite... a fun, kicky surprise!

When I owned a coffee shop, I used to make a Mayan Hot Chocolate with a dark chocolate , cinnamon and cayenne. These really remind me of that! They are really good! I think you'll like them too Martha!
