Choffee Cookies

It is like your (OK some of you) favorite 2 addictions in one.  Coffee and Chocolate!  If I threw in liquor and nicotine just imagine the people I could reel in!  HA!

I have this weird relationship with chocolate and coffee.  I love to eat these flavors but I do not care to drink them.  Is that odd?  I don't want chocolate coffee, but give me coffee and chocolate on a fork and I am all in.  I actually only made this realization while on the phone with my mom telling her about these cookies.  OK, end of the story.

Really though I do love the flavors in desserts and realized I had not ever made anything for you all with coffee and chocolate.  I LOVED the chocolate cookie recipe I used in my S'Mores Sandwich Cookies.  I mean they were so soft and chewy and that is how I like my cookies.  Not hard and crusty, ugh.  So I played with that recipe and made these.  I love them.  I love them so much I asked my husband to hide them.  Nothing good was going to come of those babies sitting in plain sight while my husband was at work.  Just the facts, just the facts.   I hope you enjoy how easy these are to make.  I think you will find they become a little addictive!

1 devil's food cake mix
2 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2-3 tsp instant coffee granules

Preheat your oven to 350.  Line your cookie sheet with a silpat or parchment.  There is a method to the mixing here, simply to dissolve the coffee and have it distribute evenly.  Whisk your eggs and add veg oil.  THEN add coffee and whisk until they are dissolved.  Add in cake mix and combine completely.  I used a 1.5 inch scoop.  This should yield about 36-40 cookies.  Bake for 8-9 minutes.  Let cool 5 minutes on the cookie sheet and then transfer to a cooling rack.  Let all cookies cool. 

1/2 cup chocolate chips or chocolate melts
1/2-1 tsp vegetable oil
1 tsp instant coffee granules

Heat chocolate chips in the microwave, 30 seconds at a time.  When they are melted, add in veg oil, according to how thin you want it to drizzle.  Add in coffee granules as well.  Drizzle cookies and let sit 30 minutes.

  1. Yes, Yes, and yes especially since August is National Coffee Month! (although I never need an excuse for coffee and chocolate:)
