chocolate mocha milk chocolate chip cookies
Needing chocolate and coffee and more chocolate? Here ya go! These also get better the next day. I make the dough, bake a few and freeze the remaining dough to pop out and bake when I "need" them. I tweaked the recipe off of the nestle website, reducing sugar, changing up butter content. They are great!
2 cups unbleached all purpose flour
3/4 cup good quality cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
1/2 cup unsalted organic butter, room temp
1/2 cup non-hydrogenated shortening, Spectrum brand is great. The crisco stuff.... baaaaaad stuff!
1/2 cup organic pure cane sugar
1/2 cup organic dark brown sugar
1 tbl cooled, coffee
splash of pure vanilla extract
2 large organic fresh eggs
1 package milk chocolate chips (trader joes chips! yum!)
Preheat oven to 350F.
Combine flour thru salt.
Beat sugar and butter and shortening until light and fluffy. Add in coffee and vanilla. Beat in eggs one and a time. Gradually beat in flour. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop onto parchment lined sheet.
Bake 10 min. Remove and cool. Eat!
