It seems like we were JUST starting Cookie Week and here we are, wrapping up the final day of what has been a week of cookie inspiration. This group of bloggers that I have been thrilled to share cookie recipes with are amazing and I really have to commend them for some seriously awesome cookie luv they have shown this week and the ideas that they brought to the table (or cookie jar) have been nothing short of awesome. I have so many ideas for the holidays thanks to them. And major major kudos to Kim and Susan for an amazing job that they did keeping us all on track.
OK – enough chatter from me, let’s get to the cookies I brought to the party – these Double Chocolate Espresso Cookies. Whenever I make chocolate treats, I always have a little jar of instant espresso nearby. There’s something about melding the flavors of coffee and chocolate that just makes the treats taste so rich and chocolatey. I can’t explain it but, in my opinion, it’s a must have ingredient. When I went to gather the ingredients, I realized that I was out of my favorite chocolate bars that I love to use in treats and would have to punt. I grabbed some bittersweet chocolate chips and decided to see what magic I could rustle up. I played with a recipe from Martha Stewart and this cookie is perfect for your next coffee break, a mid-day pick me up or on the go. Would I recommend having one late at night, ummmmm.. nope. I’m all about the espresso but I do think this made me a bit more “aware” and if I had these late night, I fear that insomnia would strike. Make these for the holidays and gift them to the chocolate and coffee lover in your life. But make a double batch and hide some away for yourself for those days you need a bit of a boost.
