Emeril's Mocha Chocolate Chip Cookies

READY IN: 29mins
Recipe by HeatherFeather

These were really good! Got this recipe years ago from an old Emeril Live episode. The spices in this give it a nice zingy aftertaste that I love. Rich and hard to eat just one. I use 1 stick of butter to give it nice taste, and 1 stick of margarine to give the cookies a nice shape. I also use dark chocolate syrup and Ghirardelli chocolate chips (bittersweet).

These are wonderful! I didn't have any instant mocha or espresso powder, so I used my international house of coffee powder but doubled it to the water. I used 1/2 butter and 1/2 butter flavored crisco. I didn't add walnuts as my daughter doesn't like nuts. Thank you so much for sharing!! I will definitely be making these again. :)
