I love my espresso. There’s something about that petite little cup and rich aroma that makes me feel oh so fancy. I can imagine myself sitting in a Parisian cafe, wearing the latest fashion, and sipping on a freshly brewed espresso. And gosh, these easy espresso chocolate chip cookies are everything my espresso-loving heart desires.

How To Make Espresso Chocolate Chip Cookies
These cookies will whip up in a snap and with no chill time required, you can be eating your morning espresso before you are even drinking it. Can I get an “incroyable!” ? (That’s French for amazing.)
First, start by creaming the butter and sugars together in the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment on high until light and fluffy. This will take approximately 2 minutes. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix on high again for another 2 minutes.
A Word On Molasses
Next comes the dark molasses. I adore dark molasses. The rich nutty and slightly sweet flavor complements the robust espresso in these cookies beautifully. Molasses is also high in iron so you know…health. Third in line, add in all the dry ingredients except for the dark chocolate chips and mix on low until fully combined and a dough is formed.

Add in those glorious dark chocolate chips and this cookie dough is ready to bake. “Sensationnel!” (That’s French for wow.) Into a 350ºF oven for 9-10 minutes and ta-da: an ultra-easy but totally ultra-fancy espresso molasses cookie.
Now go grab a book, a hot cup of espresso, and a few cookies, and imagine yourself sitting in a quaint but chic Parisian cafe. Oh and don’t forget your beret. ? Santé
