Chocolate Snickerdoodles

Snickerdoodles are a favorite of mine and I love to find new variations of this cinnamon coated cookie. I had never heard of a chocolate version until I saw this recipe from Baked Bree. Chad doesn’t like most chocolate, so I made these for a cookie drive. That way, I could try some cookies and give away the rest. These cookies are a great treat during the holidays for the chocolate lovers in your family.

Chocolate Snickerdoodles

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes

28-30 cookies

Chocolate Snickerdoodles


2 1/4 cups all purpose flour

1/2 cup cocoa powder

1 teaspoon cream of tartar

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened

1 1/2 cups sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


3 tablespoons sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly grease or line 2 baking sheets with parchment.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, followed by vanilla. Mix in dry ingredients until combined.

In a small bowl, combine the cinnamon and sugar for topping.

Roll dough into rounded tablespoon sized balls. Coat the balls in the cinnamon sugar. Place them on prepared baking sheets and press down the cookies with the bottom of a glass to slightly flatten.

Bake in preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, until puffy and lightly browned on bottom. Let cookies cool on wire rack.
