I’m talking about these cookies people. Chocolat first introduced me to spiced hot chocolate, with cayenne pepper and cinnamon. And in hot chocolate, the combination is tasty. In a cookie, the combination is just pure delicious.
Amateur Gourmet, a blog a regularly follow, featured these cookies back in January, when the weather was cooler and hot chocolate more likely on the brain. I have to say, they worked out well in March and are a great way to get the sensation of a cocoa-rich treat as the weather warms up.
Find the base recipe here, at Amateur Gourmet. I used ground hazelnuts, rather than almonds, because I had it on hand. Overall, it lent a mild Nutella note to the cookies. What could be better?
