After having a weird craving for a savory chocolate cracker, I found this recipe. I finally made them. I'm not sure if how thin they are determines how cracker-like they will be, but mine ended up being more like graham cracker consistency which doesn't pair with cheese all that well. I used cocoa powder and I would definitely sift all the dry ingredients before adding next time. I'll make sure to use the right kind of paprika also or a different savory spice. I might also adjust the temp, time, and thickness of the dough to achieve a more crispy cracker.

What does "Cocoa" mean? Cocoa powder for baking (I assume)? Or something else?
