Hot Chocolate Cookies | Christmas Cookies | Spicy Cookie

Today we are making Hot Chocolate Cookies for Christmas! These Spicy Cookies are the perfect Christmas Cookie because they help keep you warm! My parents have been making these cookies at Christmas time ever since I was a kid! You can leave out the spice, but then they really wouldn’t be Hot Chocolate Cookies would they!

1 3/4 Cup All Purpose Flour
2 Tbsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Salt
1 Cup Sugar
3/4 Cups Shortening
1 Egg
1/4 Cup Corn Syrup
2 oz Unsweetened Baking Chocolate
1 tsp – 1 Tbsp Cayenne Powder (depending on how hot you want them)

Preheat your oven to 350 Fahrenheit. In one bowl mix together all of your dry ingredients. In a second bowl, mix together all of your wet ingredients. Now slowly mix the dry into the wet. Once you have a nice dough, you want to roll the cookies into balls. You can see in the video the size they should be. Not too big, but also not to small. Roll the balls in sugar to coat them completely.
Place the cookie balls on your cookie sheet and make sure you leave space in between them for them to spread. Bake in your oven for 12 – 15 minutes. You want to watch for them to crack, and then let them stay in for a bit longer after that starts.
You want to keep an eye on the cookies, since they are dark, you are not judging how done they are based on their color. You also want to be careful not to shake them once they start cooking, or you will end up with flat cookies! If you do decide to rotate your pans in the middle of baking, just be very careful.
After your cookies are done baking, pull them out, but leave them on the tray for another 5 – 10 minutes, then transfer them to your cooling rack. Go ahead and taste them! Enjoy that heat! It will warm you right up on those cold winter days!

  2. You know, when I read Hot Chocolate, I thought you were gonna make cookies with molten chocolate which oozes out on breaking. I didn’t know you meant spicy until I read the description LOL

  3. I might just have a creative mind, but with those flattened cookies, if you take blue and green icing and put green on the higher parts and blue on the flatter, wouldn’t it look like little planets? I think that would be cute!

  4. LOL I made 10 cookies with 1 tablespoon of cayenne because I didn’t hear the last part. I was just listening to the cooking part and I didn’t hear how spicy/hot you should make it!It was SO hot we decided to not eat them

    (We gave them to our Chinese neighbours who could tolerate a lot of heat and spicyness )

  5. Im in the process of making these right now. I also may or may not have tried the chocolate… Im excited to try one once they are cooked. Just a note on your written recipee, i think it would be helpfull to list all the dry ingredients after you say mix the dry (same with the wet). Especially because sugar is normally considered a wet ingredient and isnt in this case. And maybe list sugar to roll in the ingredients list. Other then that good job on the recipee.
