Mocha Truffle Cookies

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 tablespoon instant espresso
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups flour, all-purpose
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chips

Melt butter and 1/2 cup chocolate chips. Add instant coffee and blend well. Allow to cool for 5 minutes. Add sugars, eggs, and vanilla to coffee mixture. Add dry ingredients. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop by tablespoon on greased cookie sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for exactly 10 minutes. Do not overbake.

Yield: 3 dozen

Sweetnicks Notes: An excellent, devoured, tried-and-true for us. Make sure to not go past the 10 minute baking time - very important. Tastes great warm from the oven.
