Chewy Chocolate Espresso & Sea Salt Cookies Recipe

From our friends at Plenty of Sage

Chocolate and Coffee, I could probably finish this article right here. Seriously though, something magical happens when chocolate and coffee come together (queue angels singing and harps playing) and then add a hint of sea salt to balance everything out and, well, hmmm, Oh My, Ahhh, Mmmm pretty much some it up.
This recipe was created for my love of coffee, chocolate and cookies, especially soft chewy cookies. This recipe also was inspired by a recent “girl’s night in”, we were enjoying a glass of red wine some delicious appetizers (of which the recipes will be shared in a future post) and lots of interesting conversation (it was a girl’s night in after all) and each of us shared our favourite food pairing with wine, spirits and coffee and (insert light bulb moment) this recipe was created, why you ask? We all made reference of how red wine and chocolate are delicious, coffee and chocolate are delicious and I said to myself, self, “why not develop a recipe that would go well with wine or coffee”, so here it is…

This recipe is very versatile and I encourage you to not only try it but tweak it to your personal taste such as; if you really love coffee, add more espresso, if you really love chocolate, add more chocolate…I hope you try this recipe and it becomes one of your favourites.

Have a great day my fellow cookie lovers!
