In my ongoing effort to bake more from recipes I have collected, rather than always seeking out new ones, I decided the time had finally come to make these cookies. I needed something sweet and chocolatey to take to a friend and these seemed like they would fit that bill. I got the recipe from Fresh Direct several years ago while shopping for groceries, and for some reason never got around to making them. That was a mistake. These are a great easy cookie to fill an intense chocolate craving. The cookies are a cookie’s answer to a dense, chewy brownie, with a noticeable mocha flavor that makes them just a bit more interesting than plain chocolate. Although I’m not sure you can call something with two kinds of nuts and two kinds of chocolate chips plain, even without the coffee.
