Today has been a crazy day of baking! Tomorrow, or I should say later today, is the Teen Advisory Board’s bake sale. The teens are raising money to do a collaborative art piece to hang in the library. This bake sale I decided to make 2 kinds of cookies; the big favorite, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup cookies, Double Dark OREO Chocolate Cookies (I also made a variation with dark chili chocolate), and Chocolate Cupcakes with Oreo Buttercream Frosting. (All three of those recipes can be found on MuffinsandMeat).
As I was making these Double Dark OREO Chocolate Cookies, I had an idea to make the last 10 with dark chili chocolate and give the cookie a little kick. Now that I know that it tastes awesome, sometime in the near future I am going to experiment with the chili chocolate and create a spicy chili cookie.
I absolutely LOVE this recipe! It is a MUST try!
Keep a look out for a perfected spicy version 😉
