Mexican Hot Chocolate Cookies

Not all cookies are created equal, and this chocolatey show stopper is definitely a standout. With flavors of cinnamon, chocolate, and ancho chilli powder, these cookies are a nod to the delicious beverage that is Mexican hot chocolate, a rich and creamy decadence with a swift little kick of heat. The toasted marshmallow on top adds the perfect amount of sweetness to complement these rich and spicy treats!
