I found this (coffee/chocolate/cookie) recipe in a new baking book that I got over Christmas. The combination of chocolate and coffee reminded me of my favourite drinks from Starbucks – White Chocolate Mocha. So I thought I’d give this recipe a try, and boy did this recipe taste amazing! I took some of them into the office and all 24 of them were gone by the end of the day. This recipe is a triple threat, combining Coffee, Chocolate, and Cookies all into one yummy product that wont disappoint!
2 Cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup dark cocoa
2 tablespoons instand espresso power
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, room temp
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla
1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
1 cup dark chocoatle chips
PREHEAT: oven to 350F
COMBINE: flour, cocoa, espresso power, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
CREAM: the butter and both sugars on medium to high speed until light and fluffy. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add the eggs one at a time and beat briefly after each addition. Add the vanilla and beat again to combine. Scrape down the sides of the bowl.
COMBINE: add the dry ingredients and mix until fully combined. Add the white and dark chocolate chips and mix again to fully distribute. Place batter into small mounds about 1 1/2 inches apart. Use the palm of your hand to press down lightly on the top of each to flatten slightly.
