I'm sorry, but these were not so hot. They tasted ok without sprinkles & icing, (A little like "Teddy Grahams") but once the icing was on, they were too hard to counteract the icing. Everyone thought these looked odd being chocolate too. :(

Pretty good flavor--not too chocolatey or cinnamony. However they were not chewy, but a nice crisp cookie to ice for Christmas or Valentine's Day. Don't put too close together on the cookie sheet though, because they do grow!!!

I think these cookies place a nice spin on chocolate sugar cookies. They're chewy and delicious. After recently coming across cinnamon M&M's, I decided to make these cookies with them. They're yummy. The cinnamon/chocolate flavor is subtle - and I would keep it that way. The only other thing I did differently was to replace the shortening with butter. When I did that, I chilled the cookie dough in the fridge for an hour before shaping and baking.
