Cooking with Kids: Chocolate Snickerdoodle Cookie Recipe


By on 11/29/2017 11:00:00 AM

We created this recipe on October 1, National homemade cookie day--in 2012!   What a great reason to make some cookies with the kids--not that we really needed an excuse!  We are updating this recipe this afternoon for a spot on our Holiday cookie recipe & craft idea calendar!  You will find our current ingredient recommendations (we may receive some compensation from links within our site--but, we only share the products we use and recommend!)  Check out this yummy chocolate snickerdoodle recipe for (my favorite) cookies that taste just like hot cocoa with cinnamon.


Ingredients for Chocolate Snickerdoodle (Hot Cocoa) Cookies that Taste Like Hot Chocolate
1/2 c. Butter  (I use Kerrygold or Land O Lakes)
1 1/2 c. Sugar
2 large  Eggs, slightly beaten
1 tsp. Watkin's Vanilla Extract
1 tsp. Cream of Tartar
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
2 1/4 c. Flour
1 /2 c. Unsweetened Cocoa ( I use Wild Chocolate Powder or Hershey's Cocoa)
2 Tbsp. Sugar
1 tsp. Cinnamon

Instructions for Chocolate Snickerdoodle Cookies that Taste like Hot Chocolate

Preheat oven to prepare baking sheets.
  Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.  Line cookie 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 over bake the cookies--the consistency will be a bit crunchy on the outside--but, chewy and cake-like on the inside.  Cool on a wire cookie cooling rack (I use this one from Wilton) and serve--or eat warm if you just cannot wait!

Enjoy!
