Introduction: Spicy Mexican Hot Chocolate Cookies

These cookies are delicious but spicy. Here's a tip: If you don't like a lot of spice (or any at all!) don't use as much cayenne pepper. Or, you don't even have to use any at all!
Thanks for reading!

Step 1: Get Your Ingredients

You will need:
Butter

Step 2: Cream Together 2 and 1/2 Sticks of Butter and 2 Cups of Sugar With a Hand Mixer or Whisk

Beat until smooth and creamy.

Add 3/4 of a cup of cocoa powder, 2 cups of flour, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, 1/2 a teaspoon of salt, and 1/2 a teaspoon of cayenne pepper to the small bowl.

Step 5: Gradually Add Dry Ingredients to Wet Ingredients.

Add about a 1/2 of the dry ingredients at a time.
