Cafe Mocha Cookies

These cookies came over very well.  I didn't have bold coffee so I just used regular strength.  The caramel wasn't overly prominent, you could add more if you want more of a caramel flavor.  Kids and adults really enjoyed these.


  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons hot caramel ice cream topping
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons dark roast instant coffee granules
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups (9 ounces) dark chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, cream butter, shortening and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, ice cream topping and vanilla. In another bowl, whisk flour, coffee granules, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into creamed mixture. Fold in chocolate chips.
  2. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes or until set. Cool on pans 2 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool.Yield: about 3 dozen.
