These chewy, mildly spiced cookies are covered in a pretty crunchy coating. They may appear soft when they come out of the oven, but they will firm up as they cool.

In large bowl, beat together butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time; beat in chocolate and vanilla. In separate bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, cinnamon, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cloves and nutmeg; stir into butter mixture just until combined. Stir in chocolate chips. (Make-ahead: Shape into disc and wrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate for up to 2 days. Alternately, freeze in resealable freezer bag for up to 1 month; let stand at room temperature for 20 minutes before continuing with recipe.)

Roll by rounded 1 tbsp into balls; toss in sugar to coat. Arrange, 3 inches (8 cm) apart, on parchment paper–lined rimless baking sheets. Bake, 1 sheet at a time, in 350°F (180°C) oven until tops are no longer shiny, about 11 minutes. Let cool on pans for 2 minutes; transfer directly to racks to cool completely. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container for up to 3 days.)

Tip from The Test Kitchen: Be sure to coat these cookies with decorating sugar, which can withstand the heat during baking. Granulated sugar will melt in the oven.

Makes 60 cookies.
