Salted Caramel Mocha Cookies are what cookie dreams are made of.
Sweet caramel. Roasty espresso. Hint of salt.
These might be my favorite in this series.
And because of the salt sprinkled lightly on top of each of these Salted Caramel Mocha cookies.
Espresso morsels are essential here. They are what make it resemble the drink!
Without the espresso flavor, they are just boring cookies okay?
So snag a few bags of these morsels when you see them in the store and get to baking up goodness!
