I've made these cookies a few times and my co-workers love them! In fact, I've been getting requests for them!

I've never really thought too much about snickerdoodles, but throw in some chocolate and I'm there! These were really quick, easy, and yummy.

These have a great chocolate flavor that compliment the cinnamon very nicely. I got about 50 cookies out of one batch. This is a keeper for sure!
