I love spicy food. My kids joke that I put hot sauce on everything, and it’s kind of true. I found Tabasco potato chips the other day at the store and was in heaven. I’ve been working on adapting cookie recipes to make the ultimate spicy chocolate cookie and I’m at version three right now. They’re not quite there yet, but they kind of kick ass. Bonus: your kids won’t eat them.
WICKED STEPMOTHER COOKIES
- Buy a bag of Nestle Tollhouse chocolate chips and follow the recipe up to the addition of chocolate chips.
- Use only 1 cup chocolate chips & add the following:
- 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa (you may want to reduce the flour a little if you like thinner or crispier cookies)
- 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 1/2 tsp ancho chili powder
- 1 tsp cayenne pepper
Bake according to package directions while snacking on remaining chocolate chips.
