It’s here! Christmas Cookies Week 2018 begins today and runs all week long. We have a giveaway with exciting prizes and fantastic sponsors, and we have dozens upon dozens of Christmas Cookies recipes to fill every cookie jar. 

Today I’ve made these Dark Chocolate Coffee Crinkle Cookies. Born of my love of coffee and dark chocolate, and of course, cookies. Why not combine them all together and create a cookie that encompasses everything?

That’s what I did with these.

These are perfect on any Christmas Cookie plate and tend to go fast! I was surprised when I brought 5 dozen to a recent Christmas program at school and they were gobbled up and quick. I left with nothing but crumbs. I was not surprised though.

These are great with a hot cup of coffee or steaming cup of tea or warm mug of hot chocolate.

In fact, they also go great with a tall cold refreshing glass of milk.

The deep rich dark chocolate chips and coffee flavor in every bite make for a unique cookie experience that you will adore.

The cookie is a little crisp on the outside but so soft and chewy and wonderful on the inside.

When they come out of the oven I can barely wait for them to cool enough for me to gobble up a few.

In fact, just for this post, I made them three times and most of them were gone by the time I went to take photos. My kids love these Dark Chocolate Coffee Crinkle Cookies and couldn’t stop eating them.

The third time I baked a batch while nobody was home and hid them to cool them so I could snap a few quick shots. Then I immediately consumed a few. They really are SO good!
