The boys are a bit confused right now.  I have been working on Christmas content for Nestle this past week and we are up to our eyeballs in Christmas candy right now.  We’ve been making Christmas crafts and recipes left and right and here we are a couple days away from Halloween!

They keep asking when Christmas is and I’m trying to explain that we’re still a couple months away while I’ve got the fake trees out, lights, jingle bells, and all this other stuff just for props.  My job is confusing :)

The crazy thing is we leave for a Disney cruise in 10 days and it’s going to be all decked out for Christmas so there will be no denying Christmas any longer once we get back.  I might as well just accept it now and start decorating the house.

I guess that’s why I decided to make up these amazing Spiced Chocolate Crackle Cookies.  Cinnamon doesn’t seem too far fetched here at home right now, not even in October.

I love what the cinnamon does to the classic crackle cookie.  It adds such warmth and depth of flavor and it really makes you pause for a second and enjoy that subtle heat.

These cookies are best enjoyed with a glass of ice cold milk and don’t try to eat just one – they’re way too good for that!

  1. Life of a blogger, always a month or so ahead (or we can dream if we plan properly) and yes very confusing. I just got done with a bunch of mint recipes that wont go live for another 5-6 weeks for a vendor. So weird! :)

    These look incredible. Pinned! And have fun on your cruise!

  2. I love how your boys are so excited and keep asking when the big day is coming… too cute! Have so much fun on your cruise! These cookies are looking quite delectable! (=

  6. I love cinnamon and chocolate together! These cookies look delish. :) I give out cookies to my friends and family for the holidays so I’ve been in cookie recipe mode too. It’s hard to believe it’s already that time of year.

    Just an FYI—A 12 oz. bag of chocolate chips is two cups so 8 oz. is one cup and 4 oz. is half a cup. Easier than ounces!

  9. G’day! One word? YUM!
    Cheers! Joanne

  10. My cinnamon crackle cookies turned out flat and didn’t crackle. Why? Help? Also, do you think we could add powdered sugar to make the dough less sticky?
