My husband turned 33 last week and I promised the man cookies. He requested white chocolate and coffee to put together a white chocolate mocha cookie, so I whipped these little guys up to share with all his friends at his birthday party at a very cool little bar in Kansas City called the 403 Club. I have to say, these are pretty high up on my list of the best cookies I’ve done so far. I’d like to tweak them a touch more in the future to get even more of a coffee taste to come through because it seems to mellow out on the second day. Either way, these are really excellent cookies. Hope you enjoy them as much as we did! For the coffee and grounds I just used my husband’s leftovers from this morning’s pot of coffee. Too easy! Feel free to scale up or down on the white chocolate chips to however much you like. A regular 10-ounce bag tasted perfecto to me.
