  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened to room temperature
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • ¾ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • cups chocolate covered espresso beans


  • Preheat the oven to 375-degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Cream the softened butter, packed brown sugar, and granulated sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy (approximately 2 minutes). Use a spatula to scrape down the bowl.
  • Add the eggs and vanilla to the butter/sugar mixture and blend until thoroughly combined.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.
  • Blend the flour mixture (half at a time) into the butter and egg mixture until just blended (scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed), but be careful not to overmix the dough.
  • Add the chocolate chip and coffee beans to the batter and blend lightly to combine.
  • Use a medium-sized cookie scoop to evenly drop the batter onto parchment-lined baking sheets (12 cookies per sheet) and bake in a preheated oven for 9 - 11 minutes rotating the cookie sheets halfway through baking.
  • Cool the cookies completely on wire cooling racks before serving.


The dough may be frozen for up to 3 months prior to baking. Thaw in the refrigerator and bake as per the recipe instructions.
Baked cookies may be frozen for up to 3 months in an air-tight freezer container.
If desired split the cookie dough in half (before scooping and baking) and add the chocolate-covered espresso beans (decreased to 1 cup) to half of the dough only.
