Coffee Chocolate Chip Cookies aka Mocha Cookies - coffee and chocolate combo in a cookie form! Super easy and so delicious!
I am here today with a super easy cookie recipe, just in time for the afternoon baking! Let's bake some cookies!
In my recent reader survey, I asked what types of recipes you would like to see more of on Crunchy Creamy Sweet. Cookies were the majority of the answers and I am happy to oblige!
Enter Coffee Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Do you remember these Funfetti Birthday Cake sugar cookies? They are a family favorite and my no-fail cookie dough recipe that I use all the time. I love it! It always comes out just perfect! I used it in my White Chocolate Coconut cookies, my Funfetti Cheesecake Sugar Cookie Bars, and these Sugar Cookie Dough Ice Cream! Clearly, it's a winner recipe!
This time I added instant coffee granules and dark chocolate. By the way, if you haven't yet, try using chocolate disks instead of chocolate. They make for bigger melty chocolate pieces in your cookies - always a good thing!
The coffee and chocolate flavors in these cookies bind together perfectly. None of them are overwhelming. Actually, next time I make them - I will add more coffee.
It is recommended to chill the dough (best for 24 hours) but even if you can't wait and will bake a few with the freshly made dough - you will still achieve delicious cookies. The chilling process, makes for thicker cookies and let's the coffee flavor strengthen.
