Crunchy Chocolate Choco Chips Cookies

Taken from Kitchen Snippets, I modified a little since the kids don't fancy nuts
What attracted me was because these cookies included coffee as one of the ingredients
No regret! The cookies are crunchy and a little chewy at the centre, very chocolaty too - yum!

I did little pressed balls (left), a little bigger pressed balls (right) and drop cookies at the centre
I prefer drop cookies, the kids loves the little balls :)















What you need:

21/2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp instant coffee
3 tbsp cocoa powder
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 2/3 cups (16 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips

In a large bowl, mix flour, cocoa powder, salt, and baking soda and set aside
Beat the butter and sugars until smooth and creamy. Scrape down bowl and add eggs, one at a time, beating until incorporated. The mixture will look light and fluffy
Add vanilla, instant coffee and beat for 5 seconds
Add half of the flour mixture and mix for 15 seconds
Add the remaining flour mixture and beat until just incorporated. Fold in chocolate chips
Cover the bowl and let the dough rest in the fridge for an hour
Preheat oven to 190 degC. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Use your hands to shape the dough into one inch sized balls, or you can choose to do drop cookies too with a spoon
Place on prepared baking sheet, 1-inch apart. Bake for around 15minutes
Remove baking sheet from the oven and cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes
Transfer the individual cookies to the wire rack to cool completely

Note: for more crunchy texture, you may shape to a flat round shape
