Mocha Chocolate Chunk Cookies

First things first- sorry for that unintentional hiatus I took there! I try to post at least once or twice a week, but sometimes life and school happen and I have to take a break. But, I’m back and bringing you cookies!

The other day I was in Walmart and found coffee extract hidden in the baking supplies. Naturally, I had to buy it because I have no self restraint when it comes to things like that.  I grabbed a bag of chocolate chunks and decided to make cookies! I took my standby chocolate cookie recipe and simply swapped the vanilla extract for coffee extract.

This is the brand I used. I also saw McCormick’s brand, but I don’t know if the taste will be any different using a different brand.

I also changed up the sugar ratio. Normally I use 3/4 cup of brown sugar, and 1/4 cup of granulated sugar. However, on this day, I was running low on brow sugar and had just bought a new bag of granulated sugar, so I simply switched up the measurements.

Now, I have to say, the coffee flavor is not very strong in this. My roommate and I didn’t taste it at all, and friends I asked to taste-test said they could barely taste the coffee. Only one person I know said she could taste the coffee, and at this point they were over a week old.  You can definitely smell the coffee though- and it is absolutely wonderful.
