Are you a coffee lover? I know I am and today I took my coffee love one step further by making some fabulous Chocolate Java Chip Cookies.
These cookies scream coffee! They are crispy, loaded with chocolate chunks and taste just like a cup of coffee. I just love them and they go great with your morning cup of coffee or as an afternoon pick-me up!
To give them the most delicious taste of coffee I used Kraft Gevalia® Coffee. The coffee is rich, smooth and bold. I have been using Gevalia® Coffee all summer long in my cold coffee drinks. I didn’t realize Kraft made Gevalia® Coffee. I was pleasantly surprised! I actually brewed a bold cup of coffee and poured them right into these cookies. There is no skimping on the flavor of coffee in the cookies.
The reason I made these cookies is that I wanted something different then my normal cookie. I have made a ton of cookies in the past but these ones are different. The only issue with them, is that I couldn’t stop eating them. They are so good and I love that I didn’t need to use shortening to make them crispy! Plus they are only 60 calories! Woohoo!
