Spiced Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’ve made a new friend and become addicted to Chai Hot Chocolate.
At my new part-time job I have become pretty good friends with my cubicle mate, Ms. T. It is a handy thing since we sit right next to one another two and a half days a week. She is a creative person who is always looking for ways to liven up the work day. One of the nifty things Ms. T has taught me is how to use the office coffee machine to make some fun drinks. Basically you use the latte setting but rather than use coffee and foam you use tea and either coffee, foam, or hot chocolate. I decided to combine the Chai tea pack with hot chocolate. It was AWESOME! It was so good I started to obsess a little about spice and chocolate on the days I was not in the office, and then I started to crave cookies. I think you see where this is going.
The spice mix in these cookies is not true Chai since it is missing the pepper. I just wanted the essence of Chai, so I borrowed some of the aromatic spices for these cookies. These are perfect for cooler weather, with a cup of steaming hot coffee or even hot chocolate, but I can see eating these any time of the year. I added a little chopped pecan to these to compliment the spices. If you wanted you could increase the nuts to a full cup, or use chopped walnuts, or just add more chocolate. That is a decision I can ALWAYS get behind. These keep very well at room temperature in an air tight container for three days, or freeze them for up to three months.
