Mexican Chocolate Crinkle Cookies are a sweet take on the traditional chocolate crinkle cookie. They are different in that they have a bit of spice in them.
This post is from a recipe card that was included in the Taste of Home subscription box. I was provided with a subscription box for review. All opinions are my own.
When I received the latest subscription box from Taste of Home Special Delivery it go me thinking that I’ve been reading Taste of Home magazine for more than 20 years. It was the 25th anniversary cookbook, included in the box, that gave me the realization.
Actually, it’s really probably been more than 20 years because I’ve been married 25 years. My Mom was the one who introduced me to Taste of Home and I’ve been a fan ever since. Their recipes from home cooks and their test kitchen are tried and true. Ones you can trust to work every time with something for everyone.
There are just so many recipes to try in the 25th Anniversary cookbook that I couldn’t decide what to make for this post. So I went with these Mexican chocolate crinkle cookies that were on one of the recipe cards. I picked them for two reasons, one I needed cookies for a meeting at a school and, two, I wanted to try the cinnamon spice blend and this recipe uses it.
If you’ve never made a crinkle cookie, you must! Get kids in on the fun and have them roll the dough in the sugar mixture. If you want extra flavor add the Gustus Vitae to the confectioners’ sugar. I used a cookie scoop to form the dough into nice even, round balls. Doing so yielded 3 dozen cookies that were all the same size and baked evenly. Don’t skip chilling the dough because I think it’s the reason the cookies are all so uniform.
