Mexican Chipotle Chocolate Bites

Written on February 1, 2013 at 10:25 am , by

Who wouldn’t want two cookies with a good smashing of chocolate frosting in the middle, right? These Mexican Chipotle Chocolate Bites is a meet-up of two classics: chocolate chip cookies and ganache, but with one small component that turns this classic on its side.  The game changer: chipotle chili powder.

I know smoky and heat in a cookie? With chocolate? Yes, and yes. Think of it as a cup of Mexican Hot Cocoa but in a cookie form. Of course the chocolate is the anchor in this recipe, but around that you’ll find a faint smoky taste. If you haven’t had this combination, you are in for a good surprise. It draws you in and then quickly establishes itself as a flavor enhancer to the cinnamon and nutmeg in the cookie dough recipe, and mostly importantly, the slight heat from the chipotle chili flavoring gives the chocolate a boost in flavor by providing a strong contrast for the chocolate to rest upon.

Let me be the one to warn you these little bites are addicting. Go ahead make this and see if you can have just one.
