Cappucino Choc-Chip Bars

These are supergood! Chewy and chocolatey and coffee-y all at once. These are truly some of the best cookies I've had/made in a long time. And so quick and easy to make too. Make some right now!

Cappucino Choc-Chip Bars
Adapted from Dana Treat

Makes 60 square bars

1 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
150ml strong brewed black coffee
1 cup chocolate chips
2 1/4 cup cake flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

1. Cream butter & sugar together in a large mixing bowl.
2. Add vanilla essence, coffee and chocolate chips, stirring to combine.
3. Add flour, baking powder and salt and mix well. Transfer to a greased rectangular oventray (36 x 22 cm;14.5 x 8.5 inches), pressing down to spread the batter evenly over the surface.
4. Bake 15 - 20 minutes at 180C. The dough will still be a little soft on top, but will firm up when it cools down. Leave to cool down slightly, then cut into squares and transfer to a wire rack to cool down further. Store in an airtight container.

These look quite delicious! I love anything that is cappuccino flavored. What size pan did you use?

Marisa on October 25, 2009 3:41 pm said...

Joanne, the pan was 14.5 x 8.5 inches. I should probably add that to my post! :-) Thanks for the reminder.

Wowee! Like crunchies, kind of, but... evil! With that combo of flavours, whocan refuse? Bookmarked!

You're right, they do remind me of crunchies too! Just... dare I say... better? But maybe that's just the chocoholic in me speaking.

I agree with Jeanne, I also thought it was crunchies, but these are just way better with the coffee flavor!!!

Coffee is clearly popular in blog land! I myself is not such a big fan, but TheHusband is practically an addict. (I've got my bases covered with the choc-chips though)
