Recipe: Mexican Hot Chocolate Snickerdoodles

Do you like regular snickerdoodles? We do, we are regular cookie-baking connoisseurs around here. My hubby had cookies similar to these at a recent potluck at church and raved about them. So I looked up a recipe and found it on Pinterest here. I baked them last week and they were a big hit! They have a bit of a zip- zing to them in the back of your throat after several seconds. I brought them to a VBS leadership meeting and they were quite well-received there too!

Mexican Hot Chocolate Snickerdoodles

Yield: 2 Dozen Cookies
1/2 Cup Canola Oil
1 Cup Sugar
1/4 Cup Pure Maple Syrup (I used agave nectar and they were good)
3 Tablespoons Almond Milk (or Soy Milk, if use regular milk, will not be vegan)
2 Teaspoon Vanilla
1 2/3 Cups Flour
1/2 Cup Unsweetened Dutch ProcessCocoa Powder
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon cinnamon
1/4- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne (I did put this in...)
Cinnamon Sugar for Rolling Cookies:
1/3 Cup Sugar
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Prepare you baking sheets.
  2. Mix the topping ingredients together in a bowl, then pour on a flat plate. Set aside.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, use a fork to vigorously mix together oil, sugar, syrup, and milk. Mix in vanilla.
  4. Sift in remaining ingredients, stirring as you add them. Once all ingredients are added mix until you’ve got a pliable dough.
  5. Roll dough into tablespoon sized balls. Roll dough balls in the sugar topping.  Place on baking sheet and flatten with the bottom on a cup til they are 1 1/2-2 inch discs, they will spread. 
  6. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, they should be a bit spread and crackly on top. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  7. Enjoy!!

Let me know if you try them, I'd love to hear your review!

Song of Songs 4:10
How delightful is your love, my sister, my bride! How much more pleasing is your love than wine, and the fragrance of your perfume more than any spice!

Ezekiel 27:22
“‘The merchants of Sheba and Raamah traded with you; for your merchandise they exchanged the finest of all kinds of spices and precious stones, and gold.

John 19:40
Taking Jesus’ body, the two of them wrapped it, with the spices, in strips of linen. This was in accordance with Jewish burial customs.
