These cookies really are delicious! They stay soft and have a great balance of chocolate & coffee without being overpowering. I followed other reviewer's advice and increased the cocoa to 2T., but did not increase the vanilla. It seemed fine. One thing we are going to do is add mint extract instead-- I think these will taste like my hubby's favorite drink from 'Bucks during the holidays--a mint Mocha! I used a medium scoop from Pampered Chef & only got slightly more than 2 dozen, so I am going to double this next time. Thanks for the great recipe!
Great cookie. I did use 2 T. cocoa but only 4 T espresso coffee crystals, they turned out great and got 31 cookies. May try the mint next time.
Yummy! All my roommates love these cookies, even the one who doesn't drink coffee! I was unsure about the coffee-water mixture, but it was great. I used vanilla flavored coffee and it turned out awesome. I will make these again and again! Thanks!
This reminded me of my cousin's delicious signature holiday cookies. I thought they were just tasty chocolate cookies but after trying this, I think the key ingredient must have been the coffee. It's softness depends on the length of cooking time. When left to cool on the tray racks right away it was soft and chewy. As for the last few pieces I left in the oven after I switched it off, they came out crunchier. Nevertheless, they were still delicious and I'm glad that I know how to make this mocha chip cookies without asking her for the recipe. :) Thank you, Fluffster. This is totally WOW!
I've died and gone to heaven. These are excellent cookies !!!! My favorite combo chocolate and coffee. I followed Kittencal's suggestions and doubled the chocolate and vanilla and chilled them before baking. I also sifted the dry ingred. before adding to the batter. Thank you Fluffster
I love these cookies, I even increased the cocoa by a few teaspoons and also the vanilla to 2 teaspoons, I suggest to chill the batter a little before baking to prevent spreading, this is a wonderful recipe and I will make again soon, thanks for sharing Fluff!
