These Mexican Hot Chocolate cookies are soft, chewy, chocolatey and a little bit spicy! A delicious addition to your holiday cookie plate!
This week is all about Christmas cookies here on A Pretty Life! I figure it’s not too early to get started, because for me, Christmas is all about the season. I actually love the time leading up to Christmas almost more than the big day itself! So Christmas baking should be enjoyed all throughout this holiday! Yesterday I baked up some Mint Chocolate Chip Blizzard Cookies, and today it’s time for some Mexican Hot Chocolate Cookies!
Sweet and a little Spicy!
I love these. They have the perfect balance of sweetness and spiciness! A really yummy combination! Can’t you just picture yourself cozied up in the middle of winter eating these?! They’re the perfect cookie to nibble on with coffee or your favourite hot drink! And Baileys. Perfect with Baileys.
Chewy and Soft!
Look how pretty they are even before they are cooked! 😉 Oh and I should tell you, if you like your cookies chewy and soft, just cook them slightly less than the time indicated in the recipe below. I bake mine for about 8 minutes (the tops should still appear cracked), and they’re perfect. I don’t love crunchy cookies so I always bake mine a little less…are you on the crunchy or chewy team?! Anyway, I hope you try these! I don’t think you’ll be sorry!
- The chili powder adds a really nice subtle flavour and kick to these cookies. At ½ tsp you get a tiny bit of flavour and spice, but if you really want to kick it up a notch, use 1 tsp!
- You can freeze these cookies too, which is great for the holiday season!
They’re fun and a little different! And great for gift giving too…just wrap them up in some pretty paper!
Have a delicious day!
