chocolate snickerdoodle recipeSnickerdoodles are my favorite cookie. Will’s too. I was given a review copy of Piece of Cake (which is a great book by the way) and when I was flipping through, I discovered that there was a chocolate version of my favorite cookie! Happiness all around. These make my Snickerdoodle just a little more sophisticated than the vanilla version. The outside is crispy and the inside is tender and chewy. These will be making more appearances at my house for sure. Everyone loved them.

These cookies are easy to make, the hardest part is waiting for the butter to soften. These cookies would be great for a cookie swap or to give as a gift. They are fairly sturdy, so they would package and mail well. I like to send Christmas treats to friends and family, so I am always trying to think of things that will ship well.

As always, thank you Brenda for hosting our blog hop. Take a look around and see what they other bloggers have created. It is the highlight of my week.

    Thank you for your yearly 12 weeks of Christmas cookies. I always make at least one of your cookies each Christmas. I think I may have found it today! I told myself I wasn’t going to make more than one type of cookies this year since last year I ended up eating more than my share and many went uneaten. Don’t people eat Christmas cookies anymore? I am bookmarking this one for sure! Thanks again Bree!
