A classic recipe with a coffee twist
We like roasting coffee. We like brewing coffee. And we like baking with coffee too. All of this combines in our Coffee Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe.
This recipe uses the shavings from a specialty chocolate bar infused with our own specialty coffee. If you're looking to really up your game with this noble cookie, this is the recipe for you.
We originally partnered with St. Louis's own Honeymoon Chocolates for a few drinks and bites in early 2021. Afterwards, we wanted to do more than simply sell their coffee-infused chocolate bars and make some incredible new drinks. It ultimately dawned on us that we could infuse their work into these Coffee Chocolate Chip Cookies for a nice, subtle coffee twist on a classic recipe.
What is Specialty Chocolate?
If you haven't had the flavor experience of specialty chocolate before, you are in for a treat (a treat on top of a treat, in fact). Specialty chocolate has all the same "wow-factor" in flavor experience as going from supermarket coffee to specialty coffee. It's very flavorful, rich, and oftentimes decadent.
Infused with coffee, the chocolate in this Coffee Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe delivers a subtle-yet-present coffee taste while maintaining all the richness brought by the chocolate. We've seen other recipes that use instant coffee to deliver the coffee taste, but we wanted to put our own specialty take on this recipe via their bars.
Don't have time to grab a bar from Honeymoon Chocolates?
In the recipe below, we list out some other options to give your Coffee Chocolate Chip Cookies some coffee flavor below. You can also up the chocolate flavor bu incorporating regular chocolate chips. But if you want the best of both worlds, give one of their bars a try!
We hope you enjoy these Coffee Chocolate Chip Cookies!

This Coffee Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe is extra decadent when using a broken up bar of Coffee + Chocolate from Honeymoon Chocolates. The terroir of the coffee and chocolate are very apparent as you bite into the cookie, and the taste of the cookies will slightly change when using bars from different origins. If you can't get a bar from them, we have other options in the notes below.

- This recipe makes about 15 large cookies, or two dozen smaller cookies.
- Dough can be portioned out and frozen for up to a month
- The dough is very dense, so it gets a little tough to stir. We recommend using a wooden spoon to stir in chocolate chips
- If you use cold brew concentrate, make it as strong as possible (while extracting evenly!)
- If you have an espresso machine or Nespresso machine, put 1 shot of espresso in the dough mixture (this will also help moisten up the dough a little)
