Chocolate Mocha Cookies
Chocolate Mocha Cookies are the perfect treat for the coffee addict in all of us!
cookies, white chocolate, chocolate chips, recipe, espresso
pure vanilla extract
instant espresso powder
(add more if the flavor is not strong enough)
fine sea salt
semisweet chocolate chips
white chocolate melting wafers
(I used Ghirardelli)
jimmies sprinkles or decorative sugars
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone liner.
In a large mixing bowl, beat together the butter and sugar. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until light and fluffy, occasionally scraping down the sides.
Add the espresso powder, flour, cocoa powder, salt, and baking soda. Mix until thoroughly combined.
Stir in the chocolate chips.
Using a small scoop (about 1 Tablespoon size) form into small balls. Place on an baking sheet about 1 1/2 inches apart.
Bake for 10 – 12 minutes. The tops should still be soft and look slightly under cooked.
Remove from oven and let sit on baking sheet for 6 or 7 minutes to set. Remove to a cooling rack and allow to cool completely.
To Decorate with White Chocolate
Melt white chocolate according to package directions. Stir until smooth.
Dip each cookie halfway and place on a silicone line or parchment paper. Sprinkle with jimmies or decorative sugars.
Allow chocolate to harden before moving.
Drizzle the melted chocolate over the cooled cookies on parchment or silicone liner.
Sprinkle with chocolate jimmies or decorative sugar.
For cookies rolled in white jimmies
Roll each cookie ball in a small bowl of white jimmies.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from oven and let sit on baking sheet for 6 or 7 minutes to set. Remove to a cooling rack and allow to cool completely before serving.
Nutritional values will vary depending on how the cookies are decorated and how much white chocolate is used.
Store in an airtight container, or freeze for several weeks.
