And Peg of Tilling suggests these

Which sound kind of killer.
Official recipe here.

Coal Cookies

1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 1/3 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp espresso powder (?? I'm assuming good quality instant coffee…)
1 tbsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt

Cream together.

2 large eggs

Mix until smooth.
Stir in

2/3 cup (2 ounces) Dutch-process cocoa


1 1/2 cup flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
2 cups (12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips.

Dough will be stiff.

The recipe says you can exchange these for a mixture of raisin, chips, and nuts.
My lips are sealed as to the blasphemous nature of adding raisins to chocolate.
Sure they are.


Don't do it!

If you want trail mix, make trail mix, but don't go putting RAISINS in chocolate.
Sorry.. couldn't help that.
I'm better now.

Preheat oven to 350.

Form balls a little more than an inch each – a tablespoon, or about 1 1/8 ounces).
Drop onto greased cookie sheet (or use parchment paper).
Bake 12 minutes – they will look not-quite done in the gooey, rich, melty, chocolate center……
Let them cool for about 10 minutes, to prevent injury.
Then, as you take cookies off sheet, shape them back into little rough balls.

Hey, a recipe that WANTS me to mash the cookie into a shapeless mass of stuff!!

  1. Hmmm, breakfast cookies or cookies that will keep you up all night. LOL


  2. Espresso Powder is espresso grinds thatr have been dried out and finely ground, but the 1 tablespoon of vanillia looks a lot


  3. You're right, that sounds like a lot.But I double-checked, and that's what they want for it.Maybe it's so the vanilla can hold its on with the coffee and cocoa?Never heard of espresso powder – interesting.


  4. Raisins are tasty.


  5. these sound awesome
    and I'm with you on the raisins…
    nasty little shrivelled up grape turds is what they are…


  6. I'm willing to try for an agnostic position on raisins.Unless they try hiding in my chocolate.If they try to infiltrate my chocolate, then all bets are off.


  7. Fully and emphatically agreed on the separation of Church and State, and by this I mean Chocolate and Raisins. Let never the twain again meet.


  8. I forgot to suggest these before–it's a simple recipe, a bar cookie, but right tasty:


  9. *hides her Cadbury's Fruit and Nut raisin-filled bar**whistles innocently*


  10. Why hide it? It's not like I'm gonna steal it.


  11. Yeah, but Cadbury bars have a sad tendency to grow legs and walk off.Is true!


  12. I can't tell if this phenomenon supports evolutionary theory or creationism. Hmm.


  13. Cadbury bars are clearly highly evolved.
