Who doesn't love a snickerdoodle? Well, here is a chocolate version - for all my card carrying chocoholic friends out there!! Prep time is not exact, and cook time is per cookie sheet.

Excellent cookie! I took Sjay93's advice to sub out 1/2 cup of white sugar for brown sugar to make a chewier cookie. All I had was *dark* chocolate cocoa, so used that hoping it would work out. It sure did! These are totally addicting and make up so fast that I had them mixed, baked and kitchen cleaned up in an hour. 30 perfect cookies. Thanks Skinny!
