Mexican Hot Chocolate Cookies

Yield: about 30 cookies
Time: 1 hour


1 cup all-purpose flour
¾ cup cocoa powder
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
Pinch of Spicewalla Cayenne Chilli Powder

  1.  In a small mixing bowl combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cayenne, cinnamon, and ancho chili powder, whisk together.
  2.  Add the butter and brown sugar into the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, a hand mixer will also work. Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes, scraping down the bowl as needed.

  4. Add the dry ingredients to the bowl and mix on low speed until just combined, be careful not to overmix!

  6. Scoop the cookies into 1 inch balls and place on prepared baking sheets. Chill for 20 minutes.
  7. Preheat oven to 350*F.
  8. Bake for about 10 minutes, making sure the edges are baked but the center is still soft.
  9. Cool at room temperature.
  10. Slice a few marshmallows into fourths, place one of the marshmallow slices on top of each cookie and use a kitchen torch to toast it, or put under the broiler for 1 minute. Serve immediately and enjoy!
