Chocolate Diablo Cookies

A brownie-like chocolate chunk cookie with bite. The use of oil in this cookie instead of butter gives it a fudgy, brownie texture and the cinnamon is reminiscent of Mexican hot chocolate. These flavors just set the groundwork for the real major players in this cookie. Freshly grated ginger hits you first and fights with the chocolate for your attention. This allows the cayenne pepper to sneak up and finish the job, leaving you with a pleasant heat and spicy aftertaste that just begs you to eat another one.
