The Partiologist: Mocha Cookie Recipes!

Mocha Cookie Recipes!

With today being National Coffee Day, I thought I should share the two mocha cookie recipes I used in the Starbucks giveaway.  Even if you didn't win...today you're a winner, so grab a cup of coffee, a mixing bowl and start baking!

Chocolate Mocha Cookie Crisps

Mocha Chocolate Chip Cookies

Both of the recipes call for espresso powder, so this is what I did...bought a bag of Starbucks Espresso coffee beans and had them ground it into powder.  Worked like a charm!
