Coffee Chocolate Chunk Cookies — The Skinny Fork by Gordon Ramsay

Coffee Chocolate Chunk Cookies — The Skinny Fork



Do you like coffee? Do you like soft chocolate chip cookies? You’ll love these Coffee Chocolate Chunk Cookies! Lightened up with a few simple swaps to make them a bit more guilt-free. These cookies are infused with coffee in two ways and loaded up with chocolate chunks. Making them great for snacking, dessert, or even enjoying with your morning cup of joe.

These Coffee Chocolate Chunk Cookies are soft chocolate chip cookies. It’s a light and fluffy cookie that’s more cake-like. Not much crisp. Not very dense. One of my favorite parts though? It’s a great excuse to eat cookies in the morning.

3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies by Gordon Ramsay

Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies have been a recipe box favorite for generations!

3 ingredient peanut butter cookies on plateThis recipe is the quintessential peanut butter cookie. Using only three simple ingredients, mixed by hand, and baked in about ten minutes, they’re a cookie jar favorite. You can even substitute Splenda for sugar if you like and they turn out every bit as good. In fact, as soon as I’m done writing this post up I’m heading in the kitchen to whip up a batch for my peanut butter loving family.
They are chewy, delicious, quick, and easy. All great attributes to the perfect cookie!

Ingredients for 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

To make these, all you need is peanut butter, sugar, and an egg. The amount of each ingredient is simply one: 1 cup of peanut butter, 1 cup of sugar, 1 egg. Easy peasy.  If you want to take them over the top a bit, you can add in small peanut butter cups or chocolate kisses. 

Ingredients in a bowl

Place all ingredients in a medium mixing bowl.

Stir together until well blended and fully combined. I usually just do this by hand with a spoon or spatula but you can use a mixer if you prefer. 

dough on baking sheet

Make about 1 inch round balls and place on baking sheets. You don’t have to grease your sheets but sometimes I line mine with parchment when I’m feeling especially lazy and don’t want to have to wash them later. After you place dough balls on sheet, put a little sugar in a bowl and dip the tines of a fork in it, then gently press down on each cookie twice, in a criss cross fashion. Bake at 350 for about ten minutes, or until very lightly browned.

If you want to add peanut butter cups or chocolate kisses: Bake the cookies fully and as soon as they are done, remove them from the oven and gently press a chocolate in the center of each one. Then, leave them to cool completely. The chocolate will melt down in there a little bit and attach itself perfectly.

What is in No Bake Birds Nest Cookies?

Great news for you, all of the ingredients in this recipe are very common and ones you likely already have in pantry! (Although, if you are anything like me, you’ll have to go buy more chocolate eggs. Those never last long at my house!)

  • Granulated Sugar: For this recipe we will use regular, white granulated sugar. You’ll need a total of 2 cups for this recipe.
  • Unsweetened Cocoa Powder: You can use any brand you’d like, to be honest, I usually have the store name brand and it works perfectly! You can substitute dutch processed cocoa powder if that is what you have on hand or what you prefer. This will yield to a darker color and richer chocolate flavor.
  • Milk:  The fat percentage does not matter in this recipe. I have used skim milk as well as whole milk when I had it on hand. Both work perfectly well!
  • Butter: Definitely use butter and not margarine in this recipe. Margarine will sometimes make the cookies extremely soft and they won’t set up properly. We will need half of a stick or 1/4 cup of butter for this recipe.
  • Peanut Butter: You can use either creamy or crunchy here! I generally use creamy but if you like the little extra crunch, go for the crunchy!
  • Vanilla Extract: Pure or imitation will work well. We will use 1 tsp.
  • Oats: I have actually used both quick oats and rolled oats. Both work great in this recipe! Have 2-3 cups on hand when making these cookies.
  • Chocolate Eggs- Chocolate eggs. *heart eyes* I generally use Cadbury Eggs, but you are definitely not limited to that brand! We will talk a bit about other options below.

How to Make Bird’s Nest Cookies

Making the birds nest cookies is an extremely simple process that will only take about 10-15 minutes! This recipe will be made on the stovetop. In a medium sauce pan, sugar, butter, milk and cocoa powder are combined until it comes to a boil. It is important to allow the mixture to boil for 1 minute. If it doesn’t boil long enough, the cookies will not set up.

After removing the mixture from the heat, we will add in the peanut butter and vanilla. Stirring until smooth, the heat of the mixture will melt the peanut butter quickly and make this an easy process. Now, slowly add in those oats, stirring until well combined.

Use either a spoon or cookie scoop to portion out your cookies onto parchment paper. Immediately after dropping the cookies, place 2-3 chocolate eggs in the middle and allow the cookies to cool completely before moving or serving. This will take about 30 minutes.

Chocolate Easter Egg Options

Now there are a lot of options when it comes to colorful chocolate eggs! You can use the classic, Cadbury Eggs (they now come in dark chocolate variety) or you can find peanut butter M&M’s in the shape of an egg that I think would be absolutely delicious paired with this chocolate cookie. Robins’s eggs (like whoppers) would also be a great option!
