With Cinco de Mayo fast approaching you will see a lot of recipes for guacamole or margaritas.  I wanted to share a recipe inspired by one of my favorite south of the border flavors – Mexican Hot Chocolate!  Highlighted by that intriguing flavor combination of rich chocolate and spicy cinnamon.

These Mexican Hot Chocolate Snickerdoodles have become one of my new favorite cookies!  They also freeze perfectly, so feel free to make a big batch and save some for later.   Although, mine never seem to last that long!

This recipe has a few secret ingredients – the first is 1/2 cup of ground Cocoa Pebbles cereal!

The second secret ingredient is a subtle hint of heat in the cookie dough – 1/4 teaspoon of chili powder!

The Mexican Hot Chocolate inspired cookie dough is chilled, then formed into balls and rolled in a cinnamon-sugar-Cocoa Pebbles mixture.   Just like a snickerdoodle, but with a twist!
