  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in egg, coffee, and melted chocolate. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt; mix into batter. Stir in the remaining chocolate chips and walnuts. Drop dough by heaping teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  3. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in preheated oven. Allow to stand 2 to 3 minutes on the cookie sheets before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

Great cookies. I added a little extra coffee and about 1/4 cup extra flour. The cookies were crispy on the edges and chewy in the middle. Perfect!!!!

I hate to disagree with the other reviews, but I didn't care much for these cookies. I generally love anything mocha flavor, but these had an odd, almost burned taste and they spread like pancakes even after refrigerating the dough for several hours. Not at all pretty to look at. I ended up spreading the remaining dough in a square pan and making bar cookies, which were more attractive.

These are really great. Better than regular chocolate chip cookies in my opinion. However, you can taste the coffee in the batter but hardly at all in the cookies. Next time I will add more coffee. Still awesome, though!

Well what was originally a mistake turned out to be very good! I added a bit too much melted chocolate and ended up with something more like cake batter. So I spread it in a greased, 8X8 pan and baked it about 35-40 min. Voila! Mocha chocolate chip brownies! Extra coffee really does boost the flavor, and my only suggestion would be less sugar. They're almost too sweet, but very yummy (especially topped with whipped cream!)

very good and chocolatey. i could taste the coffee in the batter cuz i added 3 instead of 2 tsp. but when they came out i couldnt taste over the chocolate flavor.

I make this recipe with white chocolate chips; the lightness of their flavor sets off the richness of the dark chocolate and coffee. I love that these cookies come out nice and chewy.

Chocolate lovers enjoy! Rich tasting cookies. The coffee flavour is very subtle.

These cookies are absolutely amazing. The photo someone submitted makes them seem lighter than they were for me. Mine were pretty dark due to the melted chocolate in the batter. HUGE hit with the people at work.
