Cinco de Mayo just got sweeter with Mexican chocolate cookies

Philly food blogger Aly M. Cleary shares a recipe for the sweet and spicy treat

There’s no sweeter way to start the Cinco de Mayo celebrations this weekend than by baking a batch of warm, fresh-out-of-the-oven Mexican chocolate cookies. 

Philly food blogger Aly M. Cleary of Cooking in Stilettos concocted this sweet and subtly spicy dessert to add a finishing touch to a plate of tacos.


The recipe - here - combines espresso, Mexican vanilla, chocolate, sugar, black pepper and some other interesting flavors.

"[They're] rich, chocolatey and with a kick from the cayenne and black pepper – well, let’s just say that I was asked to make a second batch because these cookies go quick," Cleary wrote.
