These Coffee Chocolate Chip Cookies are an improvement on the original recipe when you add a little coffee and some dark chocolate, perfect for anyone needing a caffeine fix.
I’m a night owl, which is, by my calculations, the exact opposite of a morning person.
I’m the kind of person who’d rather burn the midnight oil than wake up with the chickens. I can sometimes be hard on myself though, and do both.
And boy, do I pay for it! And so does everyone around me. Let’s just say it’s unpleasant!
To survive, I rely on coffee.
(I know, we covered this the other day, but I just really like coffee. Is that a crime?)
In the event that you need a little crunch with your caffeine, try these Coffee Chocolate Chip Cookies.
They’ve quickly become one of my favorite cookies. All you fellow night owls can thank me later.
Coffee Chocolate Chip Cookies
These chocolate chip cookies are an improvement on the original recipe when you add a little coffee and some dark chocolate, perfect for anyone needing a caffeine fix.
- 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons instant espresso (or coffee) powder
- 12 ounces dark chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup cacao nibs
- Preheat oven to 375°F degrees.
- Combine flour, baking soda and salt in medium bowl.
- With a mixer, beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla until creamy.
- Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually add in flour mixture.
- Using a spatula, gently swirl in the in coffee powder, (it's OK if it's uneven) then stir in the chocolate chips and cacao nibs.
- Drop rounded tablespoons of dough about 2 inches apart onto parchment-lined baking sheets.
- Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes, then transfer to wire rack until completely cooled.
Feel free to substitute milk chocolate chips for a lighter cookie, or up the ante on the instant espresso powder for a little more punch. (A couple tablespoons more should do it!)
