Krystal: I love snickerdoodles, but this version didn't really work out for me. The cinnamon is lost in the chocolate, and the cookies never really flattened into the crisp but chewy goodness of a snickerdoodle.
Amanda K: The taste was reminiscent of Cocoa Pebbles cereal... Although I appreciated the crunchy sugar bits, my hubby and the guys at worked enjoyed these cookies more than I did.
Jameil: These cookies didn't appeal to me the first three tastes but by the 8th cookie I was down enough to eat more; but not enough to make them again. My husband's rousing endorsement: they taste like cocoa pebbles but they don't seem like a Christmas cookie.
Abby and David Malcolm: Snickerdoodles are already a perfect cookie. These were good, but we probably wouldn't make them again.
Jennifer Osborn: If you like the Chocolate Cinnamon Bread at Starbucks, you'll love Cocoa Snickerdoodles. Serve with a cup of dark roast coffee or a shot of bourbon.
Ginny Lee: Thin/chewy with crispy edges and no discernible cinnamon flavor (perhaps overpowered by cocoa?) Unmemorable, but tasty enough with a glass of cold milk.
Jo Maney: Two thumbs up from the kids, who did the rolling and sugar dusting. Bake at 375 for 10 minutes for perfectly crispy-chewy cookie.
Jerry: Snickerdoodles are a popular cookie in this house but one we usually only enjoy while visiting the US. This chocolaty version was amazing and reminded us of Mexican hot chocolate.
Brian: Nice texture- crisp on the outside and chewy inside. Looked chocolaty, but had only a slight chocolate flavor; however, one tester felt more chocolate would interfere with snickerdoodliness. Snickerdoodlage. Snickerdoodlocity?
Michael Meserve: Although not a typical fan of the Snickerdoodle, these were fantastic with a great chocolate flavor highlighted by the cinnamon. Sanding sugar is a must as it gives these moist cookies a fantastic crunchy crust.
Jan: Easy to make but a little too sweet for me with the cinnamon sugar on top. I think they would have been perfect without it, but then they wouldn't have been snickerdoodles.
Jennifer and Joan Ong: These taste like a cup of hot chocolate by the fireplace on a snowy night. Batter made more than the 18 cookies noted in the recipe but we didn't mind because it was impossible to keep our spoons out of all along the way.
Sharon P: Easy to make. A fun twist on the classic snickerdoodle with a chocolatey-cinnamon touch!
AngieP: Easy, quick and tasty. Could not find sanding sugar for coating so used regular sugar in first batch (which we preferred) and turbinado sugar in another batch (just ok).
LeslieM : These cookies are an absolute delight: an easy accessible recipe that provides a surprising twist on an old favorite. The Scandinavian in our household initially found the idea of a chocolate snickerdoodle hard to embrace, but the cinnamon sugar combined beautifully with the cocoa to provide a cookie that will grace our Christmas cookie array from now on.
Judy Sparkes: Maybe I'm a better baker than I give myself credit for but these took only half of the two hours suggested in the recipe. My partner would like me to make these again.
