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.
