Mocha Nut Balls
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 15 min./batch
We make these every Christmas. I eat most of the batch myself every Christmas. They are so delicious. They're a tad bitter, or unsweet, due to the coffee...but the powdered sugar on the outside balances it so perfectly that you have to keep eating them. Please save me.
my husband loved thesedid not make 4 1/2 dozen
What a fun cookie - Great flavor - Easy to make - A real crowd pleaser! I did follow others' suggestions of making sure the nuts were roasted so they have enhanced flavor and to dissolve the instant coffee in a little water before adding it to the butter mixture.

Can't wait to make these this Christmas! They are a chocolate/coffee version of the traditional Mexican Wedding Cookies.They are dry, but that's how these kind of cookies are supposed to be.
Really good, not too sweet. I don't think kids would like them, more of an adult taste.
To dry for me.
Crispy, dry cookie. YUMMY!
I was afraid these were going to be dry - and I really don't like mexican wedding cookies so I made these at the request of a friend with a heavy heart.Oh boy did I get a shock! To be honest, I didn't even want to try one to taste, I only did because she said I HAD to - and the look of bliss on her face made me steel myself and take one.. they are delicious. Not dry at all but the densest richest flavour and totally addictive.If you also don't like mexican wedding cookies and aren't the worlds biggest chocolate fan.. oh boy are you in for a shock! I can't wait to make them again. They are absolutely on my christmas gift list.
I have made these before and I think they are very good. Yes- sort of like a mexican wedding cookie for sure except I like better.
