mocha chocolate chip cookies

I don’t think Rick Katz’s Mocha Chocolate Chip Cookies are meant to be a before bed treat.  These are zippy!  Two to three tablespoons of instant coffee and a pound of chocolate may just keep you wired.  Too be honest, you could back off a bit on either of those and you’d still have a delicious chocolate chip cookie.

My dough looks dark compared to some others I saw online.  Maybe it’s because I used instant espresso instead of coffee, or because I used Billington’s molasses sugar (which is a bit stronger than regular dark brown sugar).  Anyway, I liked these a lot.  Pre-scooping the dough and then baking them straight from the fridge or freezer helps keep the cookies from spreading too much.  While I left out the suggested apricots, I used a mix of dark, milk and white chocolates because I’m crazy like that.  Also, ice cream–well, you can see what I did there.

For the recipe, see Baking with Julia by Dorie Greenspan or read Peggy’s Galettista Don’t forget to check out the rest of the TWD Blogroll!

  1. Wow. This looks mouthwatering! I hope I can find the book or a copy of the recipe ahaha! 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  2. That’s awesome! You made a simple cookie delicious and fancy 🙂

  3. A yummy “whoopie pie mocha chocolate chips” dessert… fantastic pic!
    I loved these Mocha chocolate chips…I’ve doubled the ingredients (with some changes), split the dough into 4 portions and added different ingredients (such as orange, pecan+walnuts, dried cherries, almonds): a winner in our house

  4. Mine are dark too. You had the best idea using ice cream! They were such a hit at my house, I might have to make another batch soon. Then I will make ice cream sandwich cookies for sure!

  5. Oooh, ice cream sandwiches were an excellent idea! I’d fill mine with coffee ice cream 🙂

  6. yum! they remind me of whoopie pies.

  7. oooh… a cookie sandwich. Delicious!

  8. Sound perfect! Chocolate and coffee is one of the best combos!

  9. i wondered about adding the apricots so i only used half the amount. they received rave reviews, but for me, a warm from the oven toll house cookie is still all i need-at least until i saw what you did. must buy ice cream…

  10. Love that you made little ice cream sandwiches. Those sound so good right about now! 🙂

  11. Eeeee….ice cream!!! That’s is divine looking! I too used three chocolates and I loved it. Your cookies look so nice and dark.

  12. Genius to make ice cream sandwiches with these fantastic cookies! And on swapping the apricots for three kinds of chocolate. I totally approve!

  13. Brilliant idea, I bet these cookies are perfect to ice cream sandwiches! I left out the apricots too. We loved them!

  14. Like the ice cream sandwich! mine also turned out very dark, but I really liked the mocha taste. Mine turned out very differently, but tasted delicious anyway.

  15. Adding ice cream makes this one very dangerous! Your cookies and blog are both beautiful

  16. Love your cookie sandwich! So smart.

  17. That cookie sandwich looks fabulous!!

  18. These are adorable! 🙂 I just stumbled upon your blog, hoping we can follow each other! (: x http://andgeesaid.blogspot.com.au/

  19. Those look absolutely wonderful!

  20. I like the color of the dough. The dark color makes it look more delicious.
