Chocolate Chai Snickerdoodles Recipe

I used to think snickerdoodles could never be improved -- that is until I added some chocolate. While they're baking, the aromas of chocolate mixed with warming spices reminds me of a cup of hot chai tea. —Katie Wollgast, Florissant, Missouri

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 8, 2014

"delicious! Everyone at my work loved these! I changed the recipe a little. I just couldn't pay the $12 for cardamom so I cut open a K-cup of chai latte and added some of that instead."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 16, 2013

"These are fabulous! The dough was really sticky so I added 1/4 cup extra flour and refrigerated the dough for an hour or so. I also discovered I was out of ground ginger so I substituted 2 1/2 t. pumpkin pie spice for the cinnamon, ginger and allspice and they are delicious!!"

MY REVIEW

"This is an excellent cookie. I followed the recipe almost exactly but substituted half cinnamon and half nutmeg for the cardamom. Absolutely delicious and will make again."
