Mocha Fudge Cookies

This came from my Taste of Home Cookies and Bars cookbook....and is an amazing recipe. We had them at Corban's birthday party and then at our small group the next day....and everyone absolutely loved them. The coffee flavor is very subtle, which is nice because I'm not a coffee drinker. It really just enhances the chocolate. They're great with or without nuts. Try'll like them.


1 cup butter
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips, divided
1-1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup baking cocoa
1-1/2 t. instant coffee granules
1-1/2 cups packed brown sugar
4 eggs, beaten
1-1/2 T. vanilla extract
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
3/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

In a large bowl, melt butter and 1 cup chocolate chips in the microwave (or use your stovetop if desired). Stir until smooth. Combine the sugar, cocoa, and coffee; add butter mixture and stir. Stir in brown sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt; gradually add to chocolate mixture. Stir in the walnuts and remaining chocolate chips.

Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 in. apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until edges are set. Remove to wire racks to cool.
