  • Dark chocolate chips — Use high-quality dark chocolate chips for a rich and intense chocolate flavor.

Tips & Tricks

  • For a more pronounced cinnamon flavor, you can increase the amount of ground cinnamon to 1 teaspoon.
  • If you prefer softer cookies, slightly underbake them by reducing the baking time by 1-2 minutes.
  • Add a sprinkle of sea salt on top of each cookie before baking for a sweet and salty combination.
