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!

    Oh my gosh, why have I never thought to put coffee in my cookies? This is just brilliant. I’ll take 7, please.

    Oh you have captured the best of chocolatey gooeyness in these pics! Adding the coffee flavor makes my heart flutter, yum!

    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!

    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!

    Oh man. I’d have such a hard time NOT eating every one of these. Coffee is my addiction and chocolate chip cookies are my absolute favorite!

    Your photos make these cookies a “must try”. Those coffee breaks in the middle of the afternoon are invaluable and your coffee and chocolate chip cookies would make the perfect companions.
    Thanks for the recipe.
