It’s Wednesday!

And I totally think we deserve a pick me up to get us through the rest of the week, don’t you?

I’ve had almost a week off for spring break so I’ve been mostly cooking, testing recipes, running errands, and reorganizing the house. Now that spring break is over, it is definitely a lot more difficult to get myself out of the house and off to work. I seriously need something amazing to get me through the rest of the week.

These mocha chocolate chip cookie bars will be perfect for that!

What I love most about these cookie bars is that they’re simple to make. I don’t have to worry about the cookies falling apart and becoming flat. I don’t have to worry that the cookies aren’t the right shape. All I have to do is make the cookie dough and spread them in a baking pan. Super easy.

Each cookie bar is chewy and soft with a hint of mocha. It’s the perfect dessert.

I think from now on when I have to make snacks or desserts for guests, I’m making cookie bars. <3

Bake in the oven for 23-25 minutes. Remove the baking pan from the oven. Insert a toothpick into the cookie. If the toothpick comes out clean, the cookie is done. Allow the mocha chocolate chip cookie to cool down for several minutes before cutting into it. If you cut into the cookie right out of the oven, the bars will crumble.

    I NEED to try these! But I don’t have a clue where to get espresso powder. I never drink espresso. I always drink regular coffee from my drip coffee maker. Any suggestions about where to buy the powder?

    I love anything mocha and I love that your put generous amount of espresso. 😀 Love your mixing bowls, too. I hope you have a fab time, Andrea.

    Anything mocha-based has to be good. Thanks for the likes on my site. I’ve missed your visits in a late 1700’s British elegialic, fatalistic, romantic, neo-classical revival, mystic literature sort of way.

    Peace be the Botendaddy

    I am mentally drooling over how delicious these look. I’d love to make these once I can find some espresso powder. This recipe combines two of my favorite things: coffee and chocolate chip cookies.
