Mudslide Cookies


Get your milk ready! A dash of coffee intensifies the luscious flavor of cocoa powder and three types of chocolate. Crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside, and rich and delicious all the way around is how readers rate these brownie-like cookies. Need we say more? Makes 30 cookies.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon instant coffee granules
  • 1 tablespoon hot water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (about 6 3/4 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup egg substitute
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate minichips

Preparation

  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Place butter, bittersweet chocolate, and unsweetened chocolate into a microwave-safe bowl; microwave at HIGH 1 minute or until chocolate is almost melted. Stir until smooth. Combine coffee granules and 1 tablespoon hot water, stirring until granules dissolve. Stir coffee and vanilla into chocolate mixture.
  • Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt, stirring well with a whisk. Combine sugar, egg substitute, and eggs in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at high speed 6 minutes or until thick and pale. Gently stir 1/4 of egg mixture into chocolate mixture; stir chocolate mixture into remaining egg mixture. Stir in flour mixture, nuts, and chocolate chips.
  • Cover baking sheets with parchment paper. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets; with moist hands, gently press dough into 1/4-inch-thick rounds. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes or until set. Cool 1 minute. Remove from pans; cool completely on wire racks.

Note: When the cookies are done, they’ll be cracked on top and still moist in the center
