Mocha Toffee Chocolate Cookies

December 23, 2014

If you’re a coffee lover, you’ll love these Mocha Toffee Chocolate Cookies! Soft, chewy, chocolatey cookies sprinkled with mini chocolate chips and toffee bits and a taste of espresso. The espresso is really strong initially and gets more subdued the older the cookie. I loved the contrast between the chewy cookie and the crunchy toffee bits.

Mocha Toffee Chocolate Cookies

So, how’s it taste?

The texture of this cookie is perfection. I’m a big, big fan of chewy cookies and thanks to a cake mix, this one stays chewy and delicious for several days.  You could sub instant coffee granules for the espresso if you don’t want it as strong, but you probably wouldn’t be able to detect the coffee flavor after a few days. You could also leave it out altogether for a great chocolate toffee cookie, too. The batter for this one is extremely sticky, so I highly recommend using a cookie scoop that has the mechanism to push out the dough onto your cookie sheet or be prepared to get really messy! But that’s part of the cookie-making fun, right? 😉

    I really like using cake mix to make cookies. It’s fast, easy, and versatile. Since I’m starting to like coffee/mocha more, I’m pretty sure I’d love these cookies. OOh, I have some cappuccino chips from KAF that would go perfect in these.
