Let chocolate drizzle harden, and enjoy!

My favorite part about these cookies is that they aren’t overly sweet. Using mini chocolate chips puts the focus on the taste of coffee, but there’s enough there to still taste the chocolate.0505191507b6422034624614815030.jpg

But if you want more of a chocolate taste, you can make the drizzle as thick as you want–no rules here.
