Jazzed up with chocolate, these holiday gingerbread cookies are sweet, spicy and FLAMIN' HOT®!



In a food processor, pulse CHEETOS® Crunchy FLAMIN’ HOT® Cheese Flavored Snacks to make fine crumbs (you should have about 1/3 cup/75 mL crumbs); set aside.

In a bowl, sift together CHEETOS crumbs, flour, cocoa powder, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, baking soda, baking powder, and salt; set aside.

Using an electric mixer, beat butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Beat in egg until combined. Beat in molasses and vanilla. Stir in flour mixture; beat just until blended. Fold in chocolate chunks. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 375°F(180°C). Evenly roll dough into 11/2-inch (4 cm) balls; place on parchment paper–lined baking sheets, about 2inches (5 cm) apart. Flatten tops slightly; sprinkle evenly with turbinado sugar.

Bake in batches for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden and crisp around the edges and the tops are just set. Let cool completely on racks.

Stir-Ins (optional)
