Made for Aus/NZ Twelve Days of Christmas Recipe Swap. Another yummy cookie that I didn't make a gift, but as an addition to my dozens of Christmas cookies. Snickerdoodles are one of my favorite cookies and then the addition of chocolate makes them that much better. I was able to make these gluten free using my gluten free cookie flour mix (soon to be posted). Thanks for posting this recipe Mom2Rose.
