I love coffee! I love dark chocolate! This recipe brings those two things together to make this really addicting cookie. If you like coffee and dark chocolate then I should warn you that these are very difficult to stop eating.
- 2-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup butter (2 sticks), room temperature
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1-1/2 tablespoons hot water
- 4 tablespoons of instant coffee
- 2 cups dark chocolate chips, divided
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. In a small cup, dissolve coffee into hot water. Stir coffee mixture into the sugar mixture until well incorporated. Add flour mixture stirring until incorporated. Stir in 1-1/2 cups of the chocolate chips.
Shape into 1 inch balls or use a small cookie scoop and bake on parchment lined baking sheet for 12 - 14 minutes.
Allow to cool on a wire rack. When cookies have cooled completely, melt the remaining chocolate chips in microwave safe container on 50% power in 30 second intervals until melted. Using a fork, drizzle chocolate over cooled cookies.
