Make it Monday!

I Love Cookies...
I Love Chocolate....
I Love Coffee....

But I LOVE Chocolate Chip Coffee Cookies!

These cookies are amazing I found a recipe for these type of cookies before but they were too dry and not exactly my cup of tea... or coffee if you will. So I kinda tweaked them and changed them and made my own...

1/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup of margarine (softened)
1 egg
1 tbsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tbsp instant coffee granules 
1 tsp baking powder
2 cups chocolate chips or chocolate chunks 
(I like to cut up baking chocolate squares into small chunks)

Cream your butter and sugars then add the egg and vanilla, mix in your flour, baking powder and coffee granules. Mix in your Chocolate until evenly distributed. Scoop on to a lined baking sheet and bake for 8-9 mins at 350. These are a very chewy cookie, you can bake a bit more if you like but try not to let them go much longer or the bottoms will start to burn. 

mmmmm.... right out of the oven!

Once you have them all baked and have let them cool add this glaze to make them extra decedent and over the top!

Coffee cookie glaze!
1/2 tsp instant coffee granules
1 tbsp of HOT water
1/2 cup icing sugar
Dissolve the coffee in the hot water and add it to the icing sugar mixing until the icing sugar dissolves completely, and drizzle over the cooled cookies! (this is also great on regular chocolate chip muffins or on oatmeal muffins too)

 Perfect for a Nap Time snack.... 

Bake them up and give them a taste! I swear you will be hooked too!
