Midnight Mocha Cookies
By: Kathryn - Oxford, WI - Recipe Contest 2015
This recipe is a favorite for me. As a college student, sometimes I just need to have something that combines my favorites of chocolate and coffee. The girls in my dorm seem to agree. Whenever I make a batch of these, they are a huge favorite and disappear fast! I keep a tub of cookies on top of my dresser so that friends can come get a cookie from my stash whenever they need one.
