Most tempting cookies to stay away from are these outrageously Intense Dark Chocolate Mocha Latte Cookies! Definitely for the serious chocolate and coffee lovers out there looking for a boost of yumminess!
I was in total paradise a few days ago. These thick, soft-batch dark chocolate cookies took me there and all I had to do was bake them and devour them and within minutes I was there...*Pure Mocha Latte Nirvana* from Dove!
Have you tried the Dove Mocha Latte & Dark Chocolate Swirl Chocolates? It's the ideal chocolate & coffee candy and they are smack dab in the dough of these cookies! They have a balance of woodsy-roasted coffee, rich chocolate and creamy latte flavors and as an added decor, you have those smooth and sleek swirls! Love!
I saw these when I perusing down the candy aisle, like I do every time I go to the store. It's a ritual. *I peruse.* Then 'THEY' caught my eye and then my heart. Just like that! Ugh...I didn't even fight it.
If there's one thing you have to know about me; I'm not a fighter. I just walked away...with the bag OF Dove Mocha Latte & Dark Chocolate Swirl Chocolates. *muhahaha*
A tablespoon or two of strong coffee or espresso powder for a little extra flava kicks it up a notch and WOW!
These are some damn serious, yummy cookies!
Great for Christmas gifts placed in a christmas tins along with some Dove chocolates, perfect for a cookie exchange, holiday parties, book club and mid-night cravings and of course with a Mocha Latte!
Pure Dark Chocolate & Coffee Nirvana! Make these and get rave reviews! 🙂
