I was itching to use my fancy cappuccino chips I bought in Vermont when I went to visit my sister last year. I recently made some classic chocolate chip cookies so I decided to go the chocolate route this time.
I am pretty obsessed with coffee desserts and coffee in general lately. I have a tag of desserts devoted to coffee and I’ve been having fun making my own lattes at home with the aid of home made coffee syrup and an aero latte moo frother that cost me $20. One day I will have one of these pretty coffee machines! So shiny!
2 14/ cups flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup butter (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
1 tbs vanilla
1 tbs coffee flavoring (I have a Kona coffee flavoring from LorAnn Oils)
1 1/2 cups cappuccino chips
- Preheat oven to 350 F/180C. Line 2 baking trays with parchment paper. In a large bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
- 2. In a large bowl cream the butter with an electric mixer for three minutes. With the mixer on low slowly add the sugar and then the brown sugar, beating until light and creamy.
- In a small bowl lightly beat together the eggs, vanilla and coffee flavor. Add the egg mixture in two parts to the butter mixture and beat until combined.
- 4. Gradually add the flour mixture and beat until streaky. Scrape from the bowl onto a lightly floured surface and knead until just blended (don't over do it).
- Stir in the cappuccino chips with a wooden spoon.
- Use a cookie scoop to place rounds of dough two inches apart on the baking tray. Lightly flatten with the palm of your hand.
- Bake for about 15 minutes.
