Mexican Hot Chocolate Cookies
Last night while we were out and about, we heard Christmaas music playing lightly in the background. Geez people, can't you wait till after Thanksgiving?! Anyhow, it made us think of cookies. These Mexican Hot Chocolate Cookies with just a slight hint of chipotle for an extra kick will make a nice addition to your Holiday baking list.
