Vegan Aztec Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Taking inspiration from the fiery & bitter drink of Aztec society, this vegan cookie is infused with Mexican spices like cloves, cinnamon, allspice, cayenne, and a sea of chocolate chunks.

Coming from a Mexican-American household, our family gatherings are not complete without a little spice and this New Year's Eve is no exception! 

Since we'll be staying in, our fireworks experience is in this cookie. hehe! Gooey BURSTS of chocolate chunks, BLAZING heat of cayenne, and ending it all with a FIZZLE of Mexican warm spices.

With the bustle of the holidays, you don't need to plan or take too much time with these beauties because they come together super fast thanks to my Chocolypse All-in-One Cookie Mixes!  

Happy Baking!


Servings: 10-12 Choco-licious Cookies


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350° F. Take out the two pouches from the Chocolypse! cookie mix packaging (save the Sea Salt "Sprinkles" for another delicious use) and find the one labeled #1 (Almond butter mix). If contents feel hard, run under hot water for about a minute or until contents feel smooth.
  2. Empty this pouch into a mixing bowl. You will need to get as much as possible out, so a flexible spatula will work well here. Don't worry, the extra work will be worth it in the end!
  3. Add 3 tablespoons of hot water, and whisk until slightly thickened. About 30 seconds.
  4. Stir in all ground spices & Pouch #2 (flour mix) with a flexible spatula or mixing spoon until there are no white flour streaks visible. I know it's fun, but try not to over mix! :)
  5. Roll dough into 10-12 balls and place on greased baking sheet 1 inch apart. Flatten slightly and place on the oven's center rack. 
  6. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until edges have slightly hardened, but center is soft. For crispier cookies bake for 14-15 minutes.
  7. While cookies are cooling, sprinkle with ground cayenne pepper. Enjoy!

*Cookies will store nicely in a sealed container for the next 3-4 days. (If they last that long!)
