Makes: 15 servings

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?

Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt butter and chocolate; stir until smooth. Stir in coffee granules until dissolved; cool for 5 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl. Add the sugars, egg and vanilla.
  2. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; add to chocolate mixture and mix well. Stir in toffee bits. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto a baking sheet lightly coated with cooking spray.
  3. Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes or until set. Cool for 1 minute before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Drizzle with melted milk chocolate. Yield: 15 cookies.

Very disappointing. Cookies didn't spread at all, even when pressed down before baking. Taste was okay, not great, definitely not worth trying this recipe again. Also I used a TBSP scoop and it made 2 dozen cookies, not 15, FYI.

Pretty good! They taste better the next day though. Rich & chewy.

Delicious - I made about 30 bite sized cookies. They are very fudgy and rich - will definitely make again!

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.
