Secret Recipe Club is back in business after taking a month off! This time around, I was assigned Deeba’s blog, Passionate About Baking. Deeba has some great recipes, most of which are very sinful desserts…right up my alley!
I actually opted for one of the easier ones, and made them this past weekend for my cousin’s Super Bowl party…a HUGE deal in my family since we’re big Giants fans. Needless to say, we’re VERY happy today with our champions!
These cookies were not only delicious, but really easy to make. They’re cute little things! I appropriately decorated them with blue, white and red sprinkles…you can use whatever you like.
Mocha Chocolate Morsel Cookies

1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 cups AP flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon instant espresso grinds
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
pinch of salt
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
sprinkles or other toppings
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and sugar together in a mixing bowl. Meanwhile, combine flour, baking soda, coffee, cocoa and salt in a bowl.
Add egg to butter mixture and mix, then add vanilla and mix. Slowly add flour mixture in and mix until combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Roll dough into 1 inch balls and place on sheets. Press down gently with a fork, then add sprinkles. Bake for approximately 16-18 minutes. Cool on racks.
