Chocolate and coffee have always been a match made in heaven for me. Putting these flavours into a cookie to make Coffee Chocolate Chip Cookies are a perfect treat! Soft-centred, gooey chocolate chips with a good kick of coffee. What more could you want in a cookie?
I prefer my cookies quite soft and almost gooey in the middle, so these don’t take very long to cook at all. If you prefer a more firm cookie, you can always leave them in the oven for 5 more minutes.
These Coffee Chocolate Chip Cookies are perfect for afternoon tea, a sweet snack served with a cup of coffee or served warm with some ice cream for a special dessert.
1 hour 15 minutes

  • 1 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cups dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup caster sugar
  • One egg
  • One egg yolk
  • 3 tsp ground coffee
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 4 tsp strong brewed instant coffee
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups dark chocolate chips


  1. Beat together the softened butter and the sugars with a handheld electric mixer or by hand until smooth and slightly lighter in colour.
  2. Add in the egg and egg yolk and mix until well combined.
  3. Then mix in the ground coffee, vanilla and brewed coffee.
  4. Mix the flour, baking powder, soda, and salt. When it’s almost come together, add the chocolate chips and mix until all combined. We don’t want to over-mix!
  5. Scoop into balls; I used a generous soup spoon scoop (I prefer to make them taller than wider to get a chunkier cookie). Then place them on a baking tray lined with baking paper. (They can be placed relatively close together to chill)
  6. Chill in the fridge for an hour minimum or freezer for 20-30 minutes.
  7. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees about halfway through chilling time.
  8. Once the oven has preheated, bake 6-8 cookies at a time; depending on your tray size, you want them to have space to spread for 10-12 minutes.
