Dark Chocolate Espresso Cookies

I am so thrilled that my son came home from school to visit for the weekend. We spent the morning shopping in town and picking up items that he will need while up at school.  While he was upstairs studying, I thought I’d whip out a batch of cookies for him to take home with him tomorrow.  I was imagining of cookies flavored with dark chocolate, espresso, and a hint of spicy cinnamon.  I wanted to make cookies that tasted like Mexican Hot Chocolate…

I call these cookies Dark Chocolate Espresso Cookies.  They were fairly simple for I started with a basic chocolate chip cookie recipe and went on from there…  These cookies taste absolutely fantastic!  There is no doubt that I will be making these again.  Enjoy!  Tessa

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup brown sugar (lightly packed)
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 sticks or 1 cup  butter (softened)
  • 5 Tbls. cocoa powder
  • 2 Tbls. espresso powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract (use the real not imitation)
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 10 oz. dark chocolate chips

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.  Line a cookie sheet with a silicone liner.  In a large mixing bowl with a mixer, blend together all the ingredients except for the dark chocolate chips.  Mix well.  Fold in the dark chocolate chips.  Drop the dough using a teaspoon or a small cookie scoop onto the cookie sheets.  Bake for about 12 minutes.  Remove from oven and cool on wire racks.  Store in a tightly covered container.  Makes about 3 1/2 dozen cookies.

    Hi Tessa, these cookies sounded so good I decided to make a batch straight away, they are as I type this in the oven and smell fantastic. I am sure the boys will be impressed when they get home from school. Will have to come back and let you know what they thought of them.
