Mocha Choc Chip Cookies

Choc Chip Cookies are always a good option.  This is more of an adult version, the mocha biscuit base balances out the sweetness of the choc chips.

I mostly use dark choc chips, however, these are a mixture of milk, dark and white  choc chips. Use up whatever you have in the pantry.

Add some chopped  walnuts for even more deliciousness. These are my favourite but as I am the only one who likes nuts I make half the batch plainchoc chip and then add in the walnuts.

Mocha Choc Chip Cookies

125 g butter (soft)
1 cup caster sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon instant coffee

2 cups SR flour
2 tablespoons Dutch cocoa
2/3 cup choc chips/bits
1/2cup walnuts, coarsely chopped (optional)

Dissolve instant coffee in one tablespoon boiling water, cool.

Cream (beat) butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  This can be done in a food processor.

Beat in egg and cold coffee.

Stir in flour and mix until well combined.  If using the food processor use the pulse action.

Add choc chips and walnut pieces and mix thoroughly

Roll mixture into small balls. Place onto lightly greased trays approx 4cm apart. Flatten lightly with your fingers.

Bake at 170 deg C until light golden brown. Approximately 15 minutes.
