Reviews for Mocha 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!"
"These are yummy. All my relatives liked them and wanted the recipe!"
