Chewy chocolate cookies spiced with cinnamon and chili sandwiched together with marshmallow filling
Mexican Hot Cocoa Sandwich Cookies and birthdays. Two things that you don’t often see in the same sentence, but I did it anyway. Happy birthday, #SundaySupper! I probably should’ve made a cake for this occasion, but doubling the cookies and slapping them together with sweet marshmallow filling makes up for it, no? It’s amazing how much you can grow in a year. I already discussed my personal journey in 2012, but at the same time Chocolate Moosey was growing, so was #SundaySupper.
To celebrate, we were to pick any recipe that was made for past #SundaySuppers and make it. Problem is there are so many wonderful recipes, where do you even begin? With dessert, of course. When Jen posted Mexican Hot Cocoa Cookies for our cookie exchange, I immediately wanted them. Then I envisioned them as sandwich cookies. Of course she broke my heart by using cake mix, but I forgive her because she sent me cherry cookies.
I don’t like monotony, and since I did sandwich cookies not too long ago, I didn’t want to make sandwich cookies so soon. However, I could not stop picturing these slathered together with marshmallow filling. After all, they can’t be called Hot Cocoa Cookies without marshmallows.
They are chewy chocolate cookies spiced with cinnamon and chili powder then binded together with a creamy and not-so-sticky marshmallow filling. Mexicans like spicing everything up, including their hot chocolate. I was going to do the glaze too, but I tend to bake at night, so I went to bed as they cooled. Instead of following Jen’s directions with cake mix, I converted it all to scratch. You’re welcome, baking snobs :D
