OCG, my blog love deepens with every entry! This recipe sounds super yummy - a must try from start to finish. I LOVE your addition of the easy-click link to a site where I can buy some of the unique ingredients. A few clicks and I'll have everything in my kitchen to bake your delicious delights. If it was only that easy to find the time . . .

The cinnamon chips are really good. They're not spicy like Red-Hots or cinnamon hearts. Instead, they have a mellow taste, like the crumb topping on coffee cake. The cinnamon chips don't add a "big" foreground flavor, but they round out the background nicely. There's a lot of cinnamon in these cookies, but it's not an overpowering flavor because it's balanced out with the chocolate. The combination creates warmth, not in-your-face flavor. All the cinamon builds up to and supports the real heat of the cayenne. And if you're afraid of the cayenne, you could cut it back to a 1/4 teaspoon.


You know I avoid cooking like the plague; however, these cookies intrigue me and I could be tempted to try them.....but wait: That would involve a trip to the grocery store to buy all the ingredients, making a mess in my kitchen, and actually having to figure out how to use the new oven! I think I'll wait for you and Jon to come home to make them for me!! Sounds like a plan to me!

Is it any wonder that I didn't learn how to bake from my mother? She can make a mean American chop suey and a great baked mac 'n cheese, but cookies? Pu-lease. And she's 1/2 italian!


these are great chocolate cookies with a hot kick!
