Ingredients
  

Chocolate Cake Cookies

  • 1/2 cup butter cold and cubed
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp cold coffee
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Chocolate Fudge Buttercream Frosting

  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips melted

Instructions
 

Chocolate Cake Cookies

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Use parchment paper or a silpat mat to line a baking sheet. 
  • Cream the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar in a stand mixer until light and fluffy (about 2-3 minutes). Scrape the sides of the bowl to make sure all ingredients are blended.
  • Add in eggs, vanilla and cold coffee and beat until combined.
  • Add in flour, cocoa, and baking soda. Mix until all combined.
  • Stir in semi-sweet chocolate chips.
  • Scoop out dough and roll into balls. Depending on the size of cookies you want, scoop out 1/4 cup dough for BIG cookies or 2 TBSP dough for smaller cookies. Place dough balls on prepared pan (6 cookies to a pan) and flatten with your hand to about 1/2 inch thick.
  • Bake for 9-10 minutes. Cool cookies cookie sheet for 10 minutes before removing to cooling rack.
  • While cookies are cooling, make the frosting.

Chocolate Fudge Frosting

  • In stand mixer, cream butter, powdered sugar, vanilla extract and cocoa for about 2-3 minutes until smooth.
  • Add in melted chocolate and mix for an additional 2-3 minutes until the frosting is light and fluffy. NOTE: The color of the frosting will get lighter the longer you mix. That's okay.
  • Put the frosting in a piping bag with a star tip OR you can put the frosting in a gallon size Ziploc bag and cut off one corner of the bag. Use the frosting bag to pipe frosting in a spiral on top of the cooled cookies.
