One of the things I love most in the colder months is a Mexican Hot Chocolate! Chocolate, cinnamon, and a little kick from the cayenne. These cookies were inspired by that flavor. YUM!!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Snickerdoodles with their sweet, buttery flavor rolled in cinnamon sugar are divine. This recipe adds cocoa and a tiny bit of cayenne to make them reminiscent of Mexican hot chocolate. The delightful hint of cayenne hits you a few moments after you take a bite... a fun surprise. These snickerdoodles are unique, delicious, and richer than the traditional cookie. Amazing served with milk or hot cocoa. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
