Now that you have gathered all the ingredients and mixed them up into a jar, it’s time to bake those delicious coffee chocolate chip cookies! Here are some tips to ensure you get the best results possible.

1. Soften the Margarine/Butter:

When baking cookies, it is always better to use softened margarine or butter. Take them out of the fridge well in advance so that they come down to room temperature.

2. Use Freshly Brewed Coffee:

The secret ingredient that makes these cookies stand out is coffee! Make sure your instant coffee is fresh and mix it with hot water before adding it to the mixture. The fresher the coffee, the better the taste.

3. Chill The Dough:

Before baking, chill the dough for at least an hour. This helps the cookies to keep their shape when baking and prevents spreading too much.

4. Don’t Overmix:

Overmixing can result in tough and hard cookies instead of soft and chewy ones. Mix everything thoroughly without overmixing.

5. Measure Precisely:

Make sure you measure your ingredients carefully and accurately, especially your flour. Too much flour will result in dry, crumbly cookies.

6. Add More Chocolate Chips:

Add extra chocolate chips on top of each cookie dough ball before baking them in the oven! It gives more chocolate goodness and crunch.

7. Use a Cookie Scoop:

Using a cookie scoop guarantees evenly sized cookies that bake more consistently and look more professional-looking.

8. Keep an Eye on them – Do not Overbake!

Every oven varies slightly in temperature accuracy so be sure to keep an eye on your cookies while baking them. These coffee chocolate chip cookies should be golden brown on the edges but still slightly soft in the middle when they come out of the oven.

With these tips, your homemade coffee chocolate chip cookies are well on their way to becoming chewy, gooey delights that will tantalize anyone’s taste buds!
