About Chilli Chocolate Cookies

I first came across this amazing recipe for chilli chocolate cookies back when I was in high school. It very quickly became a favourite of my friend group to the point that we would have them every Friday in History class.

When I went to university I was able to use this recipe to punish my flatmate who kept stealing my food but couldn't cope with spicy food at all. I whipped up a batch and left it sitting temptingly on the kitchen table, one sorry stolen cookie later and he never stole food from me again!

This recipe is a must if you're looking for something a bit different and creative, and the spice level can be customised to your taste! Scroll down for the ingredients and instructions. If you try this recipe please comment below on how it went, enjoy!

Then have each of your friends take a cookie to see who gets the super spicy cookie! This is a great game for sleepovers, office parties or to play during a group live stream!
