TWD Mocha Chocolate Chip Cookies
I can't even remember the last time I made simple drop cookies like these. I'm so glad I did. They were easy and delicious. With this much chocolate, what's not to like? I used a combination of white and dark chocolate and also added the apricots, but this recipe is entirely adaptable. I liked the apricots, but didn't think they were necessary. The cookies would have been delicious either way. These were excellent--very soft and gooey--when they came out of the oven, but I really liked them once they set up and cooled too. The one thing that surprised me was that I really couldn't taste the mocha flavor in the finished cookies, even though I added the full three tablespoons of instant coffee. It probably heightened the taste of the chocolate, but next time I might try adding even more coffee.
