Choctoberfest

My recipe  of  the day is for chocolate snickerdoodles for Choctoberfest. This recipes utilizes product from both sponsors: Imperial Sugar and Divine Chocolate. They graciously sent me granulated sugar as well as baking cocoa for  use in recipe development.

Snickerdoodles are a classic cookie, but with chocolate added they take on a new dimension, especially with the added crunch of crushed cocoa nibs. The cocoa nibs are actually the crushed cacao beans themselves.

On their own they don’t quite have enough chocolate character for me. But when added to other recipes,  they give additional flavor and the bonus of a crispy crunch- sort of  like nuts but not quite. Actually more like the texture of chocolate covered roasted coffee beans if you have had those before. I like them.

Chocolate Snickerdoodles

These cookies are super easy to make, and everyone who tried these loved them. So if you like compliments, this is the cookie for you. People may not figure out what the crunch is right away–and I love that. It adds a point of conversation to the recipe, and I always love talking about cooking and food. Don’t you?
