Chocolate Mocha Cookies

11 July 2014

I used to make these quite a lot growing up - they are quick and simple (I only do quick and simple nowadays!) plus they taste just lovely.  Be careful not to overcook them otherwise they become quite hard and crunchy but nothing a dip in your cup of tea or a zap in the microwave can't solve.

I love the combination of the subtle coffee flavour with the dark chocolate - I just love dark chocolate - if I am ever having a day where I am totally zonked out, a couple of pieces of dark chocolate always do the trick and give me an energy boost to get me through the afternoon!

Chocolate Mocha Cookies
Makes 12 large or approx 20 small cookies

175g self-raising flour
175g caster sugar
75g butter
2 teaspoons coffee powder
1 tablespoon hot water
1 egg
Slab of dark chocolate

Heat your oven to 180 degrees, grease and line a baking tray.
Cream the butter and the sugar and then add the egg until combined.
Mix in the flour and dissolve the coffee in the hot water and add to the mixture.
Mix until a sticky dough forms, flour your hands and roll into small balls on a baking sheet making sure they are about 5cm apart.
Flatten with a fork and place a small piece of dark chocolate in the middle and press slighty.
Bake for 10-15 minutes.

These are divine straight out the oven.
And as always go just splendidly with a cup of tea.

Happy Friday ♥
