      Just the right amount of spice to make the cookies tasty, interesting, and different, without overwhelming the sweetness of the chocolate. I'll be making this one again!

      These were a huge hit! First of all, they're fun to make, grinding pepper right on top of cookies! The flavor is also unexpected and leaves a lot of people wondering what's in them. It's fun to tell people that the cookies have black pepper & cayenne in them. I really loved these and will make them again! I used Ghiradelli bittersweet chocolate and ancho chile powder.

      This is a quick and easy recipe for someone who wants a unique flavored cookie. I've made them a couple of times and switched up the spice amounts to change the taste each time just to be a little different. The only advice I have is to make sure you take them out of the oven after 8 or 9 minutes even if they don't seem done because they will get way too crispy otherwise. Thanks for the recipe!
