Step 1

Stir the sea salt into the dulce de leche to combine.

Step 2

Place teaspoon-sized dollops of the dulce de leche onto a baking sheet or plate and place in the freezer for 30 minutes. The dulce de leche will not harden but will be easier to handle.

Step 3

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, cinnamon, chipotle powder, baking soda and salt.

Step 4

In a liquid measuring cup, whisk together corn syrup, egg white and vanilla.

Step 5

In a large bowl, beat together butter and sugars on medium speed, until thoroughly combined and mixture looks fluffy, about 2 minutes.

Step 6

On low speed, add in corn syrup mixture and mix to combine.

Step 7

Stir in flour mixture and chopped chocolate until combined.

Step 8

Place the batter in the fridge to chill for at least 30 minutes or up to 24 hours.

Step 9

Preheat your oven to 375 F/190 C. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

Step 10

After the batter has chilled, form balls with 2 tablespoons of batter at a time. You should have 16-18 balls total.

Step 11

Working with one ball at a time, form the ball into a bowl-like shape. Place one of the dulce de leche dollops in the centre and form the ball of dough back around the dulce de leche, making sure to seal it up completely in the middle of the ball. Place on one of your baking sheets while you prepare the rest of the filled dough balls.

Step 12

Combine 1/3 cup sugar with 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon and 1/4 tsp chipotle powder in a small bowl. Roll the dough balls in the sugar to thoroughly coat the outside then place them back on your cookie sheets.

Step 13

Bake for 10-11 minutes until the tops looked dried out, rotating the trays halfway through baking, The middles will be quite soft still, do not over bake!

Step 14

Let the cookies cool on the pans for 5 minutes then move to a rack to cool completely.
