Reviews for Mocha Cookies
"These are very good and fudgy. I doubled the amount of instant coffee (used instant espresso) and omitted the melted milk chocolate. I doubled the recipe (used 2 T instant espresso total) and used 1/4 cup unsalted butter and 1/4 cup light butter. I got about 38 cookies total."
"Amazing! I have to make two batches. One is not enough. I recommend using 1 packet of Starbucks Via Christmas Blend."
"Very good! Made for a party and everybody loved them, even got asked for the recipe!"
"The best chocolate cookie ever! I didn't put icing on them to allow the bold flavors to burst through. If you are a fan of frosted brownies, then go for the icing. Have a tall glass of ice cold milk or a hot cup of coffee ready. Thanks for this outstanding recipe!"
"These cookies are great. I used an expresso coffee powder and doubled it. I didn't have any milk chocolate for the topping so I melted chocolate chips and spread that on top. These were a lunch time hit at work. I'll be baking these again soon."
"Great cookie for the adults after dinner. Love the coffee and chocolate together. Definately will make this recipe again."
"These are yummy. All my relatives liked them and wanted the recipe!"
"What a disappointment. They cookies did not spread they were just lumps. I am a coffee fan, but these were just about uneatable."
"Very good and they stay soft in the middle like it mentioned. I also used a peppermint frosting for a twist on some."
"My coworkers call this "Death by Chocolate Cookies" Need to use 2-3 teaspoons of the coffee granules to get the mocha taste. 1-1/2 teaspoons wasn't enough to give it a mocha flavor"
