Overall these turned out great.  I like my cookies a bit thicker and chewier, but considering how thin these cookies turned out, I was surprised how soft they stayed.  I’m sure the brown sugar helped.

I used a combination of bittersweet chocolate chips and chunks of hazelnut milk chocolate.  I also used the full amount of chocolate and instant coffee.  In retrospect, I should have cut my chocolate chunks a little smaller.  They really melted down.

I did use the suggested parchment paper and am glad I did.  They came off the pan pretty easily, but I could see a gooey, chocolate mess if I did not use parchment.

Everyone who tried these cookies loved them, so they could make it into my rotation again.  Or, I may just add instant coffee or espresso to one of my other favorite cookie recipes: Hazelnut Chocolate Chunk Cookies with Hazelnuts.  A very similar recipe, but a tad bit more flour, and a bit less chocolate.

To get the recipe check out the book Baking with Julia, by Dorie Greenspan.

Hazelnut Chocolate Chunk Cookies with Hazelnuts

The classic cookie with a nutty twist — hazelnut chocolate chunk cookies with hazelnuts.  The hazelnuts get a bit soft when cooked, so the crunch is subtle, but the hazelnut flavor is outstanding.  Equal Exchange is the only brand of chocolate bar I’ve found with ground hazelnuts, most others are chunks of hazelnut, which is okay too.  The bittersweet chocolate chips combined with the sweet hazelnut milk chocolate help balance the sweetness for a divine cookie.  Be sure to have plenty of milk around when you make these cookies.

The classic cookie with a twist — bacon chocolate chip cookies.  The bacon and chocolate chips create that excellent sweet salty combination.  Mincing the bacon allows for a subtle savory, bacon flavor in the cookie without it being too overwhelming.  As weird as this combination may sound, try this tasty cookie.  After all, many people like eating their bacon with maple syrup and waffles.
