Mexican Hot Chocolate Cinnamon Chip Cookies

Mexican Hot Chocolate Cinnamon Chip Cookies

Fall is on its way, and fall always makes me think of cinnamon.  So, I thought I would share my Mexican Hot Chocolate Cinnamon Chip Cookies with you.  Cinnamon chips are not available all year where I live, but they should be showing up again soon.  Last year, I bought several bags to last me throughout the year.

This may sound odd to say about a cookie, but these cookies have a really complex flavor.  To get the best taste, eat them slowly and see how the cocoa, cinnamon, brown sugar, and cayenne come together.
