Cherry & Chili Chocolate Cookies

My mom always gets me chocolate for Christmas and this year, stuffed in my stocking, was a new chocolate by Lindt Creations: Cherry and Chili. Immediately I was intrigued...chocolate, cherry and chili!? After one bite, immediately I was sold. The unexpected kick at the end makes for an exciting bite every time. So, when I realized I had some extra Cherry Jam in the fridge, and some of that special chocolate tucked away in the pantry I knew I had a cookie creation on the way.
