Today my husband and I are celebrating our wedding anniversary and I wanted to bake something special. This cookies are not only easy to make, but they also pack two of my favorite flavors…chocolate and coffee.


Love the crunchy part too. I would try topping them with a coarse sugar instead the next time I bake them. I have a feeling that would make a difference.


This Mocha Crunch Cookies works wonders for an afternoon pick me up. Coffee and chocolate in one bite, that sounds like a great afternoon treat to me! Or a great way to celebrate an anniversary. Enjoy this cookies and share some too!
