I have shared with you my recipe for the Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie. It always gets rave reviews, and many of you have tried it and loved it too! I took that recipe and gave it a little tweak. I added coffee. Oh my word.


These are awesome!!

Mocha Chip Cookies - Thick, Soft, and perfectly Chewy!  #cookies #coffee #chocolate

I have developed a habit of drinking a cup or two of coffee when my little ones go down for a nap each day.¬† It’s nice to have a few minutes of down time – well semi down time. My 3 month old is not on a regular nap schedule yet. But that’s fine with me. I am perfectly happy to have that one on one time with him, and if he falls asleep on my chest? Well that’s just frosting :)

Anyway, you know what goes great with coffee? Chocolate. And cookies. Why not add the coffee directly into the cookie dough, I thought?

Mmmmmm. It’s a good idea, trust me. The coffee flavor isn’t overpowering, but it really enhances the chocolate in these cookies and adds a little something special! Give them a try! They might just become your new favorite ccc!

    You and I are on the same page because I’ve been experimenting with adding a mocha flavor to my latest chocolate chip cookies. I love your version. Can’t wait to try it!

  11. Coffee always seems to make chocolate a bit more *chocolatey* if that makes sense. I remember the Barefoot Contessa saying that on a show ages ago and it resonated. These cookies would be perfect with coffee!
