  • 1 1/3 cups flour 185g
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 115 g butter softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 block 100g Whittaker's Kaitaia Fire Chili Pepper Spice Chocolate, roughly chopped


  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Line a baking tray with baking paper and set aside.
  • In a medium sized bowl combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, cinnamon, chili powder and salt.
  • Using a stand mixer or hand mixer beat butter and sugars together until fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and combine.
  • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and combine using the lowest speed. Stir in chili chocolate chunks.
  • Using a cookie scoop or spoon place rounded scoops on the prepared baking tray about 5cm apart.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes until set, checking after 8 minutes. You don't want to overbake the cookies. Let the cookies sit on the baking tray for 5-10 minutes before moving to a cooling rack.
  • Store in an airtight container for 1 week.
