Chocolate Espresso Crinkle Cookies

Hello fellow foodies! Are you ready for some chocolatey goodness? Today, I want to share my recipe for Chocolate Espresso Crinkle Cookies. They are wonderfully rich in chocolate flavor and have a soft center with crisp edges.

My husband said I should call them Reverse Snow Leopard Cookies (lol) but I had to go with their original name of crinkle cookies. I add espresso to my crinkle cookies to enhance the chocolate flavor and it makes a huge difference.

Don’t forget to chill the dough before baking because it makes all the difference. Also, if you don’t have a cookie scoop, no worries, just use a spoon and roll dough into a ball. Easy peasy!

These cookies have a lovely crackle effect on the outside when baked. They are perfect for a party, cookie exchange, or for gift giving.

Have a great weekend!
