Yes this is too a chili recipe.... sorta?

Real quick post today - especially for my friend Barry... ok, ok you too Brian :)

I made these for my work folk last week and they seem to go over well. At least I think they did. They kinda disappeared and I am not sure what happened...... one minute they were there and the next thing - only crumbs.... too bad new guy doesn't work Fridays. He would have liked them :)

Without any fanfare whatsoever because they really don't need them. Yes, they are THAT awesome!

Dark Chocolate Chili Cookies

What you should have

1 cup unsalted butter(2 sticks for the butterly challenged)and its very important its room temp! Hard butter makes crumbly cookies.
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup dark cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
bag of chocolate chips
1/3 tsp Chipotle powder- see why it fits on this blog?? Awesome cookie AND it has chili in it....I am in chili heaven now!

What you should do

Preheat oven to 350.

Mix all the dry in a bowl and set aside.

Beat together butter and sugar.. add eggs and vanilla then add in the dry in thirds.

If you add in the dry at once, you are totally responsible for cleaning flour off the ceiling... it happens... I won't say how I know ... I just know.

Mix in the chips by hand.

Drop by rounded tsp onto greased cookie sheet.

Cook for about 8-10 minutes until edges are a little bit crisp. And they really dont flatten and expand so keep an eye on them.

Makes 36-48 cookies depending on how big you make them.

Hide them from your friends and family and eat them when no one is looking

Howdyyyy RoooOOOOooo those are good cookies!!

(see what I did there... snuck in my howdy roo whoo hoo lol)

Coming soon- How I got the idea for my logo AND a new contest-promise!!!
