Mexican Chocolate Crackled Cookies

I’ve come to look forward to the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap 2013at this time every year. I get to decide on a great cookie recipe (this year, I went with Mexican Chocolate Crackled Cookies!), make a huge batch of them, and mail them around the country to three other food bloggers (usually people I haven’t met yet). My kids look forward to the swap, because we also receive three boxes of cookies at our house. Festive times. 🙂

The Mexican Chocolate Crackled Cookies have a bit of a kick to them — they’re not spicy per se, but they’ve got a little heat from ancho chile powder. I tore the recipe out of a McCormick ad in a magazine. Mexican hot chocolate meets brownie bites is the best way to describe these cookies — I love them!

Read on for the recipe and to see the terrific cookies we “swapped” for!

Here’s how mine looked when I packaged them up to mail them (I’ve got them wrapped in press and seal inside the tissue paper – a care package freshness tip from my mom!).

Italian Orange Cookies from Racquel at The Primitive Platter.

Almond, Cherry and White Chocolate Cookies from Ashley at Girly Obsessions.
