Yeah, everyone loves those and I think you will love this twist on the classic snickerdoodle too. I mean, come on, Chocolate and Snickerdoodles…YES!
So what is a chocolate snickerdoodle?
Basically, a regular snickerdoodle cookie with the addition of cocoa powder.
The cookies are still super soft and chewy, a must for snickerdoodles.
They also have cream of tartar, like traditional snickerdoodles. The acid in cream of tartar gives snickerdoodles a slight tangy flavor and makes the cookies chewy because the cream of tartar prevents the sugar from crystalizing and making the cookies crunchy.
The cookies have cinnamon in the dough and they get rolled in a cinnamon sugar mixture before baking. If you are worried chocolate and cinnamon don’t go together, don’t worry. The hint of cinnamon is SO nice with the chocolate.
The cookies are easy to mix up with every day ingredients. Make sure you don’t over bake the snickerdoodles. You want them to stay soft and chewy!
When you bite into your first cookie you will be expecting a normal chocolate cookie, but the chocolate isn’t overpowering. You will taste the chocolate, but then you will be hit with the hint of cinnamon and the familiar taste of a snickerdoodle. You might ponder the cookie for a minute and wonder if a chocolate snickerdoodle is a real thing. You might even eat three cookies to determine if you like chocolate snickerdoodles. And on your fourth cookie, you will be SOLD! The combination is real and it is SO good! Chocolate lovers will especially love this snickerdoodle recipe.
Go wild and bake up a batch of Chocolate Snickerdoodles. They will surprise you!
