Is there anything better than a warm gooey chocolate chip cookie straight from the oven?? Coffee lovers will go crazy over these mocha cinnamon chocolate chip cookies!
With just a bit of espresso powder that gives a depth of flavor and flaky sea salt for that slight salty bite. They could become your next favorite cookie. Make sure to use chopped chocolate instead of chips though for that ooey-gooey chocolate ribbon when you pull it apart...excuse me while I wipe the drool from my mouth.
