Devil’s Delight Cookies, featuring "Some Like it *REALLY* Hot" Legos

Devil Cookies with "Some Like it Hot" Legos

Lynn was up visiting a few weeks ago, so we had to bake. In addition to the Secretly-Not-Vegan Blueberry Banana Muffins that I made, we made Devil’s Delight Cookies together. The recipe calls for Vosges Red Fire bars (in fact, my copy is written on a Vosges Red Fire wrapper)  but we didn’t have any.
What we did have were a set of “too spicy for human consumption” Lego seconds from Chocolates By Ariel. This seemed a reasonable compromise, and they turned out delicious! They are probably too spicy for kids, so more for me!

 Devil’s Delight Cookies

  • 10 oz bittersweet chocolate
  • 1/2c + 1 Tbsp flour
  • 3 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1C + Tbsp sugar 3 eggs 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 “Red Fire” bar or 4-5 “Some Like it Hot” legos (approximately 94g), broken into ~ dime sized chunks 1/2C cinnamon chips

For dusting:

  • 4 tsp sugar
  •  4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

Preheat oven to 350F and line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. Mix dusting ingredients and set aside. Melt bittersweet chocolate. In a medium bowl, whisk flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and cayenne pepper. In a large bowl (i.e. the mixer bowl) beat butter and sugar until creamy. Add eggs and beat until the mixture is pale, light and creamy, 5-10 minutes. Mix the melted chocolate and vanilla into the egg mixture, then add flour mixture, SLiH bar pieces and cinnamon chips. Beat until just combined and drop the result onto the cookie sheets in small lumps. Sprinkle the dusting mixture over the lumps and bake for 12 minutes or until the cookies are evenly cracked but not firm to the touch. Enjoy!

 

Update

These were awesome the first and second day, but got crumbly and not as good after that. So if you make them, eat them fast!
