Chocolate Cinnamon Chip Cookies for the Dark Side

I realize this is a terrible picture, but trust me....the cookies are definitely worthy of admission into the Dark Side.

The texture is almost brownie-like in quality, and the cinnamon chips add just a hint of spice to the chocolate. While the offspring and I are strict milk-and-cookie types, I think a cup of coffee would compliment these very nicely. Enjoy!

Chocolate Cinnamon Chip Cookies

2 c all-purpose flour
1/2 c unsweetened cocoa
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
8 oz unsalted butter (2 sticks), softened
1 c brown sugar, firmly packed
2/3 c granulated sugar
1/2 c coarsely chopped dark chocolate
2 large eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 c cinnamon chips

Preheat oven to 350F.

In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt; set aside.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and the sugars. Melt the chocolate either in a double boiler or in the microwave. Pour melted chocolate into the butter mixture and beat until combined. Wisk in eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour mixture about 1/3 at a time until well-incorporated. Fold in cinnamon chips.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoon onto a lightly greased cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart. Bake 12-15 minutes, or until edges appear dry. Cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to rack to cool completely. Makes 24-30 cookies.


  1. Mmm! What brand(s) make cinnamon chips? I can't recall seeing them.
