BWJ - Mocha Chocolate Chip Cookies


It's time for Baking with Julia again, and this week's recipe is Rick Katz's Mocha Chocolate Chip Cookies, hosted by  Peggy of Galettista.

These cookies are, as their name suggests, coffee flavoured cookies jam packed with a whopping amount of chopped chocolate.  I only made half a batch, and I think that would be plenty to fill the average cookie jar (it made 23 cookies).   They taste pretty good, provided that you like coffee - and chocolate.

My photo is at a weird 90 degree angle because Blogger in its wisdom decided it looked better that way, and I do not have the time or the energy right now to fix it.

To see what the other Julia bakers thought, visit the LYL section of the website.

I do like coffee and chocolate, and I thought these were pretty tasty!

Sweet and That's it said...

Yeah, sometimes Blogger has a mind on its own (and it does annoy me!)...
But don't worry, your cookies still look yummy, doesn't matter how they are posted. ;-)

I loved these Mocha chocolate chips...I've doubled the ingredients (with some changes), split the dough into 4 portions and added different ingredients (such as orange, pecan+walnuts, dried cherries, almonds): A WINNER!

Blogger does some odd things sometimes, doesn't it? Fortunately these look good whichever way the photo is oriented :)

I enjoyed these, but you're right, the quantities do make a lot!

Liz Berg said...

Darn Blogger. Your cookies still look great!

I love your photo orientation and your explanation of why. There are somethings that are too small to worry about. Have a great day!

We liked these, too, but my kids were less enthusiastic.

Loved these - and even at a 90 degree angle, yours still look wonderful! ;)

Yes, the recipe does make a lot. I always freeze extra cookie dough, so I can pull out a few to bake off whenever we have a cookie urge. :)

Yes, blogger is a monster with a mind of its own...

I love coffee in baking although I don't drink it that much. I think I'd love these! :)

Mardi Michels said...

Yours look lovely like all the chocolate melted in the cookies - mmmm - chewy!

Kathy said...

Blogger lost my post last week…it definitely has a mind of it’s own!
Your cookies look and sound delicious!! I love coffee flavored things. Can’t wait to try them! I skipped this one, and posted my croissants finally!

Karen Kerr said...

Laughed out loud at your photo explanation. Sometimes things just aren't worth the fretting, and we are all friends here, right? I'll just tilt my head!

Elaine said...

It looks like your cookies are a nice size. I really liked the chocolate and coffee combo.

I am seriously behind in blog reading, Gaye, and will be back to catch up.

Kayte said...

LOL on your Blogger Inspired photo angle...they look great any way you look at this one. I better get these made next time Matt is home as I am certain he would love the idea of coffee and chocolate together in a cookie!
