Frosted Chocolate Mocha Cookies

1 pouch sugar cookie mix
1/3 c. cocoa
3 T. instant coffee (I use decaf)
1/2 c. butter, softened
1 egg
3 T. water
1 c. chopped pecans
1 c. mini chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, stir together cookie mix, cocoa and instant coffee. Add butter, 3 tablespoons water and the egg; stir until soft dough forms. Stir in the nuts and the chocolate chips.

On ungreased cookie sheets, drop dough with rounded 1 1/2 tablespoon-size cookie scoop or by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart. Press each mound to flatten slightly.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until set. Cool 3 minutes; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.

Add frosting after cookies are completely cooled.


  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  1. Place confectioners' sugar in a medium bowl. Whisk in butter and cocoa powder. Add milk and vanilla, and whisk until well combined.
