These dark chocolate chilli cookies are pretty rich, but they’re oh-so-delicious. I love the little kick of heat in them, it makes them feel a little grown up which is rare for a cookie! It’s safe to say no one complained when I showed up to the office with these on a Monday morning!

While they are definitely great for morning tea, they’re even better warmed and served with ice cream. Go on – treat yourself!
