"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."

"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."

"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"
