Mexican Chocolate cookies

Jump to recipe

If you’ve never had Mexican Chocolate before let me tell you, you’re missing out. It’s rich, spicy, sweet, the layers of flavors are incredible. My grandmother used to make a huge pot of hot Chocolate (we don’t call it Mexican chocolate, for obvious reasons) to go with her homemade buñuelos every New Years day. It was a party! It’s the memories of the smell, the flavor and of course, my dear Abuelita in the middle of all that I cherish the most. 

I knew exactly what spices would give me the flavor I was looking for but I didn’t want a complicated cookie with a lot of ingredients and a handful of dirty bowls. So, I went with these gluten-free cookies. They are so easy, with very few ingredients and don’t even require a stand mixer. 


Just dump all the ingredients in s bowl and mix with a spatula. If the dough feel dry, its ok. Just use your hands to mix it together. Clean hands are a cooks best tool. 

Use a small ice cream scoop and scoop the dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. You’ll get about 12-14 cookies. Flat them down with your fingers. 

Bake the cookies at 350 Degrees for 10 minutes. That’s it! Super easy and delicious. 

This is a small delicate cookie,  but it packs a ton of flavor. It is rich and sweet but also has a little kick from the cayenne pepper. I’ve made two batches in the lest three days, even my little girl loves them! Can’t get enough.

Hello, my name is Marisol Chancellor. I was born and raised in Monterrey Mexico. I’ve been living in Texas for 12 years and even when I love barbeque, fruit cobblers and sweet tea, there’s something that has the power of transporting me right back to my mom’s kitchen and gives me a little piece of home, cooking. I grew up in the kitchen and for me, memories are always linked to food, and behind the food, well, there’s always a story that comes along. So, please let me share with you my love for cooking and while we are at it, let’s share some memories, because let’s be honest, we are also hungry for nostalgia.
