Chili-Chocolate Chip Cookies: are quite easy to make n sinfully yum. Perfect for that Valentines Sweet-Spicy surprise.
Infact I have been making chocolate cookies for ages now using oil however it always missed that smooth buttery texture & crunch which a butter cookie has.
But I was not ready to make cookies using butter as we all would agree that cookies are something we don’t even count when eating.
I had also heard that chili goes really well with chocolate and had been wanting to try experimenting with it.
So today, I’ve mixed the oil recipe with some butter & also added some chili powder to the same and trust me, it’s given these cookies a great crispness (due to butter & oil) and a kick because of chili.
You should definitely give it a try as they just melt in your mouth.
