Chocolate Chip Coffee Cookies

Chocolate Chip Coffee Cookies – Deliciously soft, thick and chewy coffee-infused cookies that are loaded with chocolate chips, and topped with a sweet coffee drizzle!

A scattered pile of Chocolate Chip Coffee Cookies.

The brilliant idea for these coffee cookies came from my brother, Murray. He loves his coffee and requested I make chocolate chip coffee cookies! So I figured out ways to incorporate instant coffee granules into a cookie recipe, and settled on a few ways. 

I incorporated 2 tablespoons of coffee granules into the dry ingredients, then added an extra 2 tablespoons of coffee granules into the wet ingredients to give these cookies an extra kick of flavour. I also topped them off with a gorgeous coffee drizzle.

Approved by my brother, and the rest of my coffee-loving family! ♥

Ingredients for Chocolate Chip Coffee Cookies:

  • Plain/all-purpose flour
  • Baking powder
  • Baking soda
  • Cornflour/cornstarch
  • Salt
  • Instant coffee granules: Use your favourite coffee that you absolutely love to drink!
  • Unsalted butter
  • Caster/granulated sugar
  • Brown sugar
  • Large egg
  • Chocolate chips: You can use milk, dark or semi-sweet.

For the coffee glaze, you’ll need:

  • Icing/powdered sugar
  • Instant coffee granules
  • Water

These cookies are deliciously soft and chewy, incredibly thick, and bursting with coffee flavour. The coffee drizzle takes these cookies to the next level.

Coffee and cookie lover? These chocolate chip coffee cookies are the ones to satisfy your coffee craving in cookie form. It doesn’t get any better than that!

This is a super quick and easy cookie recipe that requires no chilling time. You simply combine the dry ingredients, and the wet ingredients together, scoop the dough up onto a baking tray, and bake for 10 – 12 minutes.

These cookies are very soft once out of the oven, but they will continue to cook whilst left to cool on the baking tray, and firm up when cooled completely. Under-baking cookies is what makes them extra soft, and chewy!

These cookies received rave reviews from my coffee-loving family, and are my most requested cookie recipe to be made over and over again. I hope you and your family will love them just as much. 🙂

  4. Roll the dough into 1.5oz balls, and place onto the prepared baking tray. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes. Allow to cool on the baking tray for 5 - 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Notes

*Use a coffee you absolutely love to drink! The taste is everything in this recipe. If you'd like a weaker coffee taste, skip the 2 tablespoons of coffee in the dry ingredients.

Cookies stay fresh, kept in an airtight container, 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.

    Wow. Just wow. Love the name, love the pics. Since it’s Monday, I think I’m gonna need like one dozen of these chocolate chip coffee cookies, Marsha. 😉 It’s pretty cool that the idea for these came from your brother. 🙂 Family is good that way–requesting us bakers for custom goodies. Hehe. Have an awesome Monday & thanks for sharing such an amazing recipe. 🙂

    Hi Marsha! I don’t have corn flour, what can I use as a substitute? And will the cookies store well in room temperature?

      Hi Ana! Cookies stay fresh, kept in an airtight container, at room temperature for up to 1 week. Instead of cornflour, you may use arrowroot, or instant pudding mix.

        Just stopped by again to say I’ve made this a few days ago and it is the BEST cookie recipe I’ve ever done – and I’ve done a lot! I promise this won’t be the last time I’m making your cookies, Marsha. Thank you so much for sharing. <3 I've found my forever favorite!

    Hello, the brother here!
    As you’re too busy, and can’t always make these delicious cookies for me anymore, I decided to try and bake them myself… bear in mind that I have never baked anything before! So things could of gone horribly wrong.
    But after about 3 hours, my cookies was done! And they tasted gorgeous! I’ll definitely be baking more of these in the future. And probably some more things from your blog too.

    Keep up the good work sis!

    (The instructions was easy enough to follow, but as it was my first time baking, I may of made a few mistakes 😛 hence why it took me so long.)

    I came across this recipe of yours this morning and since I had all of the ingredients, I made them. Absolutely delicious and incredibly easy to make too. I loved that the butter was melted first and then no chilling was required either so that in less than an hour these cookies were finished! The finishing touch of the simple coffee glaze makes them look quite elegant too. I think they will be lovely included in cookie platters for Christmas. Thank you so much for posting this perfect recipe.
