I know what you’re thinking.

“Another mocha recipe so soon?”

Yep. I’m all about mocha right now, and not just in drink form. The flavour of chocolate and coffee is incredible in cookies, too!

These cookies are slightly adapted from my Chocolate Chip Coffee Cookies, my brother’s all-time favourite cookies. I’ve added cocoa powder, and a little extra cornflour for a thicker cookie. I LOVE cornflour in cookies. It makes them incredibly thick, soft, and chewy without being cakey. You may also know cornflour as cornstarch. 🙂

I chopped up chunks of dark chocolate for these cookies, but you can use chocolate chips!

So, if you love chocolate and coffee, you have got to try these cookies. My coffee-loving family definitely approved of them, and I have a feeling they’ll be requested just as much as these cookies are. 😉

Chocolate Chip Mocha Cookies

Deliciously soft, thick, and chewy chocolate cookies infused with coffee and studded with chocolate chunks. No chilling required!
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes


  • 1 and 3/4 cups plain/all-purpose flour 218g
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder 25g
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons cornflour/cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter 115g, melted
  • 1/2 cup caster/granulated sugar 100g
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar 50g
  • 1 large egg
  • 4 tablespoons instant coffee granules
  • 1 tablespoon hot water
  • 1 cup chocolate chips 175g, and some extra for topping, or chunks


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4, and line a baking tray with parchment paper, or a silicone mat. Set aside.
  2. Whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, cornflour, salt, and 2 tablespoons of instant coffee granules. Set aside.
  3. Whisk together the butter and sugars until combined. Add the egg, and mix until combined. Dissolve the remaining 2 tablespoons of instant coffee granules in 1 tablespoon of hot water, then add to the wet ingredients, and mix until combined. Add the dry ingredients, and mix until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  4. Roll the dough into 1.5oz balls, about 17 balls, place on the prepared baking tray, and press the extra chocolate chips on top. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes. Do not over-bake. Allow to cool on the baking tray for 5 - 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.


Cookies stay fresh covered at room temperature for up to 1 week. Cookie dough balls can be kept in the fridge for up to 5 days, or frozen for up to 3 months. Bake from frozen for an extra minute.

  1. You can never have too many mocha recipes. That combination of chocolate and coffee is so good! And I really like that you cut up dark chocolate for these. They sound wonderful!

  2. Hi Marsha! This is the first I’ve come across your lovely blog..and lookie are sharing a cookie recipe. I am a Cookie Monster for sure. I’m Marsha of The Better Baker blog..a play on my last name. Thanks for sharing this awesome cookie…I love coffee..and love it in my cookies. Stop by and visit me sometime… I definitely have a baking addiction also.

  3. Marsha, I am SO not thinking that!! All I’m thinking is: oh WOW!! These cookies are absolutely perfect, and it’s just a HUGE bonus that they’re mocha-flavored. I am never one to turn down a delightful mix of coffee and chocolate–especially if it’s a delicious creation by you. 🙂 Pinned, of course! Wishing you an awesome weekend, Marsha! xo

  4. Hi Marsha,
    Found your recipe on Pinterest. I didn’t have any cookie scoops so I found how to convert your scoop size to teaspoons. Decided to make 1 inch balls like I usually do. Good thing I test baked 6. They barely flattened out! The rest of the balls got flattened with the bottom of a glass and then extra chips. The taste was great! The perfect birthday treat for the male business owner across the street! Thank you for sharing!

  5. I just took your amazing cookies out of the oven & they are perfect! I am an old lady so I’m not posting a photo but they look just like yours. I found this just doing a random mocha search & hit the proverbial jackpot with these cookies. Incredibly easy to make & doesn’t require a pound of butter. When I was teaching, I used to drop a Hersheys Kiss into my coffee and got this same flavor. Thank you so much. My family will love these.
