Mocha Chocolate Chunk Cookies for #ChristmasCookies

Welcome to the final day of our very sweet #ChristmasCookies week where more than 25 bloggers are sharing cookie recipes perfect for your holiday celebrations. Hosted by Ellen from 
Family Around the Table, Christie from A Kitchen Hoor’s Adventures and Heather from Hezzi-D’s Books and Cooks, we invite you to not only check out the recipes but enter the amazing giveaway. Don’t miss one delicious cookie recipe! Follow along on Pinterest.

These cookies are SOOOO good - if you like the coffee / chocolate combination you will definitely have to give these a try! I really like the instant espresso from Café Bustelo - it works perfectly in baked goods like these! 

These cookies have a wonderful buttery flavor - lightly crisped edges, wonderful tender bites of chocolate, soft and chewy cookies. They are perfection - and they are the perfect treat to enjoy with some coffee at the end of the day. Santa would totally love a few of these with some coffee on Christmas Eve!

I was really pleased with the opportunity to work with Adams extracts throughout this event; I love their vanilla and almond extracts; they are high quality, pure and potent, and add wonderful flavor to your holiday baking! 

Make sure you enter the Rafflecopter at the bottom of this post - there are some amazing giveaways this year!

Mocha Chocolate Chunk Cookies

3/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
2 teaspoons Adams vanilla
1 3/4 cups flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon instant espresso powder or instant coffee
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chunks

  1. Cream the butter with the sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer until lightened and fluffy - for a couple minutes. Blend the egg in and then the Adams vanilla. Scrape down the sides as needed.
  2. Combine the dry ingredients in a medium bowl: flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt, and espresso. Whisk to combine.
  3. Add the dry ingredients into the wet and mix until dough comes together. Stir the chocolate chips in with a spatula.
  4. Refrigerate for 30 minutes (or more) before proceeding to allow dough to chill.
  5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line two baking sheets with silpats.
  6. Use a 1 1/2 TBS cookie scoop to arrange 12 dough balls per cookie sheet.
  7. Bake 8-10 minutes per tray, until edges are starting to brown and look set. Allow to cool on the baking sheet about 3-5 minutes, before moving from tray to cooling rack to complete cooling.
  8. Repeat with remaining dough, chilling extra dough in the refrigerator between batches.
