I’ve got another dangerous cookie recipe to share with you. These mocha chip cookies are moist, chewy and a delicious combination of chocolate with a hint of coffee. Not only are the cookies amazing but the cookie dough is to die for!
My little gal proved to be a great helper in the kitchen when making these. That is if you define helping as tasting various ingredients and attempting to stir with her hands.
Despite managing the eager toddler hands as I made these, they turned out great. The original recipe is actually a peppermint mocha cookie recipe but I’m not a huge fan of peppermint so I just excluded that ingredient and they turned out great.
Hope you get a chance to try these out! Check out other dessert ideas in our recipe index.
