Mexican Hot Chocolate Chip Cookies

 

Winters are cold in New England! Hot chocolate is the best way to warm up. Mexican hot chocolate is my favorite. It is a little sweet and a little spicy.  Now I can eat it as a cookie. My recipe is adapted from the Wheat-free Chocolate Chip Cookies in Veganomicon.
