Classic soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies with a touch of coffee and cream – instant coffee powder, semisweet chocolate chip and white chocolate chips will make these cookies your favorite coffee treat!
Throughout the years I had a love-hate relationship with coffee. I started drinking coffee in my last year in high school as the final exam was finally approaching. Shortly after that I took a break and we found each other in college while trying to keep up with classes, part-time job and me time. Once college was over we had an ongoing relationship for few more years, nothing serious but broke up few years ago when I got pregnant. At that time I told myself I’ll never drink coffee again.
No exams, no job.All I had to do is take care of my family.
I’m a stay-at-home mom!
I can survive without coffee!
How naive was I!
Fast forward 2 years, a stay at home mom, an energetic toddler who doesn’t go to preschool or day care, a house to clean, a family to feed and a blog. Coffee is now my BFF! Some days I’m so crazy busy I don’t even have time to sit down and enjoy it. It’s a sip here, a sip there.
But my love for coffee doesn’t stop at just drinking it. I love to eat it as well.
When we decided to have coffee as this month’s secret ingredient to our chocolate party I had no idea what I was going to make. Coffee and chocolate go together so well and after running some ideas in my mind I finally decided upon chocolate chip cookies with a touch of coffee and cream.
These chocolate chip cookies are the classic cookies but I added heavy cream and instant coffee to the cookie dough. To make them even more irresistible and do a double coffee and cream effect I used semisweet chocolate chips (to represent the coffee) and white chocolate chips (to represent the cream).
Chocolate party is a monthly virtual party where everyone is bringing a dessert featuring chocolate and one secret ingredient.
Our recipes will be shared on the first Monday of each month and you can submit your own recipes by the end of the month. You can submit up to 3 recipes each month.
To make sure everyone is having fun, there are a few rules you’ll have to follow.
1.) Blog about your chocolate treat. Your recipe must include the two ingredients we choose. It can be a simple no bake treat or a sophisticated layer cake, the complexity level of the recipe is totally up to you.
2.) Include a link back to this post, a monthly round-up or the Chocolate party page. Optionally, add the Chocolate Party logo in your blog post or on your sidebar.
3.) Your recipe must be published during the current month. Please do not link old recipes, they will be deleted.
I hope you’ll join our party and bake along with us. Also, if you’d like to know what are we up to and what ingredients we pick for the next parties, join our Facebook group.
All submitted posts will be pinned to the Chocolate party Pinterest board and will be promoted on other social media platforms using the #chocolateparty hashtag.
