I made these cookies for a holiday party last year and they were a big hit! They are not "spicy hot", but rather have a hint of heat in the finish. They taste best right out of the oven when cool enough to eat and chocolate still molten; a real treat for the baker!

These are really good but they are a little tricky to make and, if you use the Vosges Red Fire bar, very expensive (I think you could use more cayenne and good-quality bittersweet chocolate chips instead and save a little money). The chocolate/chile/cinnamon combo is classic Central American and always reminds me of the hot chocolate Juliette Binoche's character made the in the movie Chocolat. Why do I say they're tricky? First, the recipe will not make anywhere near 3 dozen if you use 1/4 cup of dough for each. I use an ice cream scoop and it still makes only about 2 dozen. The dough quickly becomes very firm at room temperature. If you can, I suggest you scoop all of it out at the same time, even if you have to do it on parchment paper that is then transferred to baking sheets. Finally, the amounts given for the "dust" on the top make way too much unless you absolutely blanket the cookies with the "dust", which I don't recommend---I cut it in half and still end up throwing some out. In spite of the above, these are very much worth making. The kids probably won't like them, but for the more sophisticated palates at your holiday party, they're winners!
