…in an email from my MIL.

Melt slowly in a double boiler:
1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 c. butter softened
1 T. instant coffee
1/2 t. vanilla
Set aside to cool while mixing the rest.
In a large bowl:
1 egg, whisked
Add chocolate mixture slowly to egg.

Add to chocolate/egg mixture:

1/2 c. sugar
1/4 c. dark brown sugar
1/2 c. flour (White or Whole Wheat)
1/8 t. baking soda
1/8 t. salt
1 c. chocolate chips

The batter will be more wet than normal cookie batter. According to my MIL, you can add dried fruits, nuts, wheat germ, ground flax seed, or a favorite liqueur. Or not!

Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes or until crisp on the outside and gooey on the inside 🙂
