    I love coffee and chocolate, so this was a winner. You can use a 12-oz bag or semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of the chocolate bars, and it works wonderfully!  -  27 Oct 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I read the reviews and used 1/4 cup coffee granules in with the flour as suggested, instead of the grounds on top. I also reduced the sugar to 3/4 cup. And oh my, these are to die for! I won't be making them too often as my husband and I would be in danger of getting enormously fat!  -  05 Sep 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Wow! I changed a few things: 3/4 cup butter, 2 tsps vanilla and 1/4 cup strong espresso to the cookie mix, no coffee grounds on top! We ate them hot out of the oven and they were delicious!  -  10 Feb 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
