How to Make It

Step 1

Combine flour and next 3 ingredients in a bowl.

Step 2

Beat butter and next 3 ingredients at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until blended after each addition. Gradually add flour mixture, beating at low speed until blended. Stir in chocolate chunks.

Step 3

Drop dough by heaping tablespoonfuls onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets.

Step 4

Bake at 350° for 10 to 12 minutes or until puffy. Cool on baking sheets 2 minutes; remove to wire racks, and let cool 30 minutes or until completely cool. Spread cookies with Mocha Frosting. Dust evenly with powdered sugar, if desired.

Step 5

Note: Dough may be frozen up to 1 month or refrigerated up to 2 days. Let stand at room temperature before baking as directed.

I was in the mood for a taste of extra chocolate cookies. Followed the recipe almost exactly and they were great. I've made them twice in 1 month and I noticed if the dough is chilled for a long period of time (I left it in the fridge for 24hrs) the cookies are softer and chewier plus I used half semi sweet and half milk chocolate chips. I made them about 1.5 tablespoons big and they were still soft in the zip lock bag I put them in on day 4. The frosting in my opinion isn't needed. It's tasty enough!

Hint: The Mocha Frosting recipe is highlighted in red under the ingredients listing. Just click on it and the frosting recipe will open. A chocolate coffee bean placed in the middle of the cookie might be a nice decorative touch.

Been looking for this recipe for years, finally found it! I used to make these as a teenager and they were a hit then, and now my grown kids love them, too :) The cookie is cake like (which normally isn't my style), very rich dark chocolate and the icing is a perfect compliment to them. Yummy!

I substituted white chocolate almond bark and Andes mints chopped for chocolate chunks with 2 tablespoons of instant peppermint mocha coffee added to the cookie batter. SOOOOO good!!! Great cookie recipe, everyone will enjoy! No icing needed :)

These cookies are SO GOOD! Very rich and chocolaty, but the mocha frosting really makes the cookie. I just googled a mocha frosting recipe and it was very good. Easy to prepare and a hit with everyone who tried them.

WHERE is the Mocha Frosting recipe?! The cookies alone aren't worth the bother without the frosting!

This cookie recipe is THE BOMB! Easy to prepare. They are good without the frosting but the frosting makes them chocolate heaven.

Great recipe for a very tasty cookie. I skipped the frosting, but still added mocha flavor by adding 2 tablespoons of instant coffee granules to the cookie batter. All they needed was a light sprinkle of powdered sugar after they cooled.
