    If you love rich chocolate, coffee, and a nice soft texture, this is a great cookie recipe! I have made it at least 10 times for my family and friends, and they always turn out tasting good. I always use the "microwave and glass bowl technique" to melt the chocolate chips and baking chocolate. The only problem I have had when baking these cookies is that sometimes they flatten out too much if the batter gets too close to room temperature. They seem to do much better when the batter is put in the refrigerator for 15 minutes before baking. Watch these closely--as soon as they begin cracking, take them out--they will look gooey, but after they cool, they will be rich and delicious! Thanks for this recipe--one of my favorites!  -  10 Sep 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    when i first finished mixing the batch, i placed the cookies on the sheet and they just melted right on there, so i thought it was a disaster. if you leave the batch around exposed for a while, it hardens, and the melting won't happen. i wouldn't make these cookies for guests to eat right out of the oven, but the day after, they're just absolutely to die for! love this recipe!! but not to be made the day-of for dinner guests, for instance  -  07 Feb 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Chocolate Espresso Cookies are awesome! I made a big batch to share with my coworkers, and everyone _loved_ them! They are perfect, and the espresso flavor is not at all overpowering. Some folks who tried them suggested putting in whole espresso beans -- only for true caffeine nuts!  -  05 Jun 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
