Spiced Chocolate Butterscotch Cookies – These eggless spiced up cookies are wonderful for the holiday season and go wonderfully well with a glass of eggnog or hot apple cider.

Spiced Chocolate Butterscotch Cookies

For these cookies, I used a dark chocolate chili flavored bar. The quantity of flavored chocolates in the markets have been growing so much in recent years and many brands have chili flavored chocolate bars. If you cannot locate a chili flavored bar, just add 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper to the recipe below.

However, there are a lot of abuses in the chocolate industry – both environmental and labor abuses. There are many companies that use child labor and/or slave labor. Additionally, the palm oil harvest that is used in chocolate production is pushing the orangutan’s towards extinction in Southeast Asia. To purchase chocolate from ethical suppliers, you should always purchase fair trade chocolate brands.

As it’s holiday season, there is always the need to have sweet stuff around, when unexpected guests stop by. Here are some more cookies and holiday desserts you might like to try.
