5 stars from 1 rating of Mocha Chip Cookies

These delicious chocolate chip cookies taste like they've been dipped in a mocha latte! Do I really need to say more? They bake up soft with slightly crisp edges and tend to disappear within a few hours. The type of chocolate chips used add very different characters to these cookies so try several to find the ones you like best. My favorite are white chocolate, but dark chocolate are especially delicious as well.

  10. Cool on a wire rack and serve warm or cool.

      That sounds amazing Carly! I have to make them decaf at the moment... but as soon as I'm able to they are becoming caffeinated! The peppermint candies in them would be fantastic! Ahh... holiday baking ^_^ can't wait! Thank you so much for you wonderful comment, it's always a pleasure hearing from you!

      Oh wow, these look delicious. We bake holiday cookies every year, and this needs to go into our line up. Why? Because it has coffee in them. Who doesn't need that extra boost during the holidays. I think I will replace half the chocolate chips with smashed peppermint candy.

      Vespa, You have no idea how happy your comment makes me! Thank you! ^_^ Ooh... I bet your came out even better than mine since you used Starbuck's espresso powder, yum. I can't have caffeine at the moment so I used folger's decaf instant granules.

      Mama Kim, I tried these cookies this morning and they truly are fabulous! I was a little nervous at first, since I love traditional style chocolate chip cookies, but the cocoa powder and coffee powder really do add something special! I used Starbuck's espresso powder and they tasted like something they'd serve at a coffee house. Thanks so much for sharing your delicious recipe with me!

      I came over for an Asian recipe, but your mocha chip cookie recipe distracted me! What could be better than chocolate and coffee? I'll make this soon...we're about due for a cookie fix. : ) Thanks so much!

      Fullerman5000- Baking is a lot of fun! whether you bake them yourself or not these are yummy. I came up with the idea because like you I love dipping cookies in coffee.

      Combining my favorite cookie with a coffee flavor is a delicious idea. I always love dipping cookies in my coffee, but with this recipe no coffee needed. I am not the best baker, so I will have to convince someone to do this for me. But, I am also always looking to starting getting into the baking game, so once again I will give this a shot. Thanks for sharing.
