Mexican Hot Chocolate Cookies

24 Dec

I came up with this recipe based off of one from my brother’s girlfriend. She’s a vegan and a wonderful baker, but I wanted dairy in mine 😉

Time: 15 min prep, 12 min cook        Serves: 24


  • Cookie Dough

  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 1/3 cup flour (I used 1 unbleached white and 1/3 whole wheat)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • Topping

  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Cream butter, sugar, eggs, milk and vanilla until fluffy. In a separate bowl combine dry ingredients, mix well, and then slowly add into the butter mixture. Mix well. Fold in chocolate chips.
  • Roll dough into walnut sized balls and pat into topping. Press until they are 2 inch discs, then place on baking sheets. Bake for 12 minutes, switching sheets from upper to lower shelf halfway through. Remove and transfer to cooling rack.
