Why haven't I heard of anyone making spicy chocolate chip cookies before? We have Mexican candy that's both sweet and spicy. Their hot chocolate is the same.
Travis helped me figure out what to add. He's quite a bit Mexican, so I trust his judgement. I didn't want to make them too spicy.
I added a little cayenne pepper, cloves, cinnamon, changed the crushed walnuts to Brazil nuts, and changed the semi sweet chocolates to dark chocolate chips.
Travis, Isaak, and I all love them. Mica said, "Do you have to keep putting cayenne pepper in everything?" I have to admit I've been putting it in a lot of dishes to help clear up my sinuses.
I made the Mexican Chocolate Chip Cookies for reals! To me they are amazing. What if say someone at worked picked one up to eat, not knowing they were spicy?
I'll be making a second batch very soon, to send off to the places where we work. They LOVE my cookies! Some may or may not like the Mexican Chocolate Chip Cookies.
This is when I want to say, "Man up, and eat the flipping cookie! Go outside your box you smuck!" In all reality I know not everyone likes spicy things.
If you like spicy things, or just want to play a trick on someone here's the recipe to Mexican Chocolate Chips:
8 ounces of butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all purpose flour
2 1/2 cups dry quick oats
12 ounces dark chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups Brazil nuts
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1. Cream the sugars with the butter and eggs.
2. Combine the rest of the ingredients one at a time.
3. Crush the nuts before adding them.
4. Spray a few cookie sheets.
5. Use a scoop to put them on the pans. They will spread out, so leave room in between them.
