Crisp on the outside, gooey on the inside, these mocha-flavored cookies from Pamela Jessen in Calgary, Alberta are the perfect treat for chasing away winter doldrums. Why not invite a friend over some snowy afternoon to share a plateful and a cup of coffee?

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 14, 2014

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!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 4, 2011

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.
