Instructions for Chocolate Snickerdoodle Cookies that Taste like Hot Chocolate
Preheat oven to prepare baking sheets. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
Blend moist ingredients. Cream butter and sugar together until well blended. Next add eggs and vanilla until completely incorporated.
Add dry ingredients. Beat in the cream of tartar, baking soda, salt, flour, and cocoa. Add a little extra flour if the dough is not stiff enough to roll into balls
Prepare cinnamon sugar mixture. Add cinnamon and sugar to a small bowl or plate and mix until fullly blended.
Roll cookies in cinnamon sugar and place on baking sheet. Shape the cookie dough into 1-inch balls. Roll each ball lightly in the cinnamon sugar mixture and place on parchment paper lined cookie sheets.
Bake the cookies. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until cookies are set well. Do not overbake--the consistency will be a bit crunchy on the outside--but, chewy and cake-like on the inside. Cool on a wire rack and serve--or eat warm if you just cannot wait!
