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!!

Tina, Sorry you didn't like them. Spices can go flat with age. Just a suggestion but try fresh cayenne. I've made these multiple times and the kick is there.
Terrie, So glad you tried and liked them. Cake mix is a nice shortcut that I use as well. Happy holidays to you both!

I made a variation of these cookies using a chocolate cake mix, one egg and 1/3 cup of oil and I added 1/2 tsp. of cayenne pepper. I mixed it all up, rolled into balls and rolled the balls in sugar, pressed them down and baked them for 12-15 min. or until done. They were sooo good!! I used a devil's food chocolate cake mix.

I'm sorry - I made these and think they are awful. There is NO kick of cayenne, even tho I added more than the recipe called for and to boot, they are not even chocolaty. They are just ... bad. BOO !!!! Will not make these again. To each our own. Thanks for posting and allowing me try them !
