If you like chocolate chip cookies and coffee this is the treat for you. These delicious mocha chip cookie bars have chocolate chips, a kick of coffee and a creamy chocolate ganache glaze.
Let’s make some cookie bars. It is really just a basic chocolate chip cookie base with the addition of cornstarch to give it a cake like texture. Then a tablespoon of instant coffee is added for some more flavor. First I preheated my oven to 350 degrees. Then I whisked together flour, salt, cornstarch, and baking soda and set it aside.
I then creamed together my butter, sugar, and brown sugar together for about three minutes to get them light and fluffy. An egg is then added and mixed well along with the flavorings vanilla extract and instant coffee granules. You could also use espresso powder.
Once those are incorporated, I mixed in the flour just until combined. Then stirred in the chocolate chips. I then spread the cookie batter evenly into a 9″x 13″ baking dish and baked it for about 20 minutes.
After the pan of cookies cooled, I poured a 1:1 chocolate ganache glaze over them. Then chilled the bars until the chocolate was set about 30 minutes and sliced them up.
If you want to skip a few steps the cornstarch and coffee could be added to a chocolate cookie dough mix. Then baked and topped with the ganache.
These bars are absolutely a delicious with their cake like cookie base and creamy chocolate topping. You must mix up a batch of these today. Go on, get your mocha chip cookie bar on!
