Espresso coffee cookies with a dark chocolate drizzle.
If you’re a fan of coffee flavoured treats, you’re going to love these coffee cookies! Filled with strong coffee flavour and a generous drizzle of chocolate, these espresso flavoured coffee cookies are a fun and delicious way to have your coffee and eat it too.
I made these cookies with instant espresso powder, however, any instant coffee powder would work well; the recipe calls for 3 tablespoons of instant coffee to ensure that they have a strong coffee taste but you can certainly reduce the amount if you want more of a background flavour. Not to mention, you can certainly add chocolate chips or chocolate chunks directly to the cookie dough instead of a chocolate drizzle on top, the combination of coffee and chocolate will make delicious cookies regardless of how you choose to create it.

- 3/4 cup unsalted butter, browned and cooled
- 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 egg + 1 egg yolk
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons instant espresso powder or instant coffee powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips, melted (optional)
- In a small saucepan over medium heat, add the butter, warm, and allow to melt, stirring frequently. To brown the butter, continue to cook the butter until it begins to foam and bubble, light browned specks begin to form at the bottom, and the butter has a nutty aroma. Once browned, remove immediately from the heat, transfer to a bowl and allow to cool completely.
- Once the butter has cooled, in a large bowl, combine the browned butter, brown sugar, and white sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Add egg, egg yolk, and vanilla extract and mix until well incorporated.
- In a medium bowl, add flour, instant espresso or coffee, baking soda, and salt, and stir to combine.
- Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredient and mix until combined, being careful to not over mix the dough. Once mixed, transfer the dough to the fridge for at least 30 minutes, or overnight.
- Once the dough has chilled and you are ready to bake the cookies, preheat the oven to 350°F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
- Use a 1-ounce cookie scoop, or 1 1/2 tablespoons of dough, portion the dough into balls, place them onto the baking sheet, leaving roughly 2 inches between them. You should be able to easily fit 6 cookies on the baking sheet at a time.
- Transfer the baking sheet to the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, until the edges are slightly golden and the centre still looks a little soft. Continue until all of the dough has been used; be sure to place the bowl of extra dough in the fridge while each batch of cookies bakes.
- Once baked, remove the cookies from the oven and allow to cool a few minutes on the baking sheet, then transfer them to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.
- Once the cookies have cooled, melt the chocolate. Either add chocolate to an ovenproof bowl and place it over a small saucepan with a couple of inches of water, and warm it until melted, or heat chocolate in a bowl in the microwave for 1 minute or until silky smooth. Once melted, drizzle each cookie with chocolate and then allow to cool rest until chocolate has solidified completely.
- Any leftover cookies can be stored in an aright container for 3-5 days or in the freezer for several months.
