Spangled Tigers by Akai-Ink Spangled Tigers by Akai-Ink
Spangled Tigers - A rich, superbly dark chocolate cookie, crisp and toothsome on the outside, but chewy and dense on the inside. Tossed in a bowl of powdered sugar, then baked until they crack.

Speaking of crack, apparently they've nearly as addictive. A good thing, since they're a vicious pain to make! The dough is so sticky, I have yet to make a batch without copious cursing.
Named for a ridiculously handsome fellow at the studio where I take dance lessons.

My business partner might kill me if I give away the recipe, since we run a bakery together. But I'd be happy to help you dress some up!

Betty Crocker has a great recipe:
[link]

I use dutch process & dark cocoas instead of regular, and fold ganache into the dough, too. The dough gets super sticky because of the ganache, though.

I started with this recipe as my inspiration: [link] and made some adjustments to suit my tastes. The most important change is that I use dark or Dutch process cocoa instead of standard cocoa. :heart: Post pictures if you do make them!

Thank you for the comment, but I'm so sad that you get migraines from chocolate. How terrible! :hug:

Yes, I think it is a curse since I love chocolate, I have a bottle of Excedrin Migraine on me at all times. The darker the chocolate the worse the migraine.

Wow, that's an awful allergy, especially because I *love* dark chocolate. At least the Excedrin helps!
