Whip It Up Wednesday: C3 Cookies

When I came home a few days ago from a shoot, look what I was surprised with! David went crazy in the kitchen and made the most amazing chocolate chocolate chip cookies in the world!  
Seriously, I don't think I have had a better cookie and I am not just saying that because he is my husband. If you like Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies with a little KICK, you will love these!  
C3 Cookies – Chocolate, Chocolate Chip, and Coffee* Cookies 
*secret ingredient 
4 cups (two 12-oz. pkgs.) semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided 
2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour 
1 teaspoon baking soda 
1 teaspoon salt 
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened 
1 cup packed brown sugar 
1/2 cup granulated sugar 
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
1 teaspoon instant coffee powder (*secret ingredient) If you want mocha cookies, add 1 Tablespoon of coffee powder. 
3 large eggs 
Preheat oven to 375° F. 
Melt 2 cups (one 12-oz. pkg) of chips in small, heavy-duty saucepan over low heat; stir until smooth. Remove from heat.  
COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt in medium bowl (sifting the flour makes for a fluffier cookie). Beat butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in melted chocolate chips and coffee powder. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in remaining 2 cups of chocolate chips. Drop by small ice cream scoop on to baking parchment (do not use wax paper) placed on top of a baking sheet. Use the bottom of the ice cream scoop to dimple the top of the batter for a nice even cookie. You can preload multiple sheets of parchment to have ready for baking. 
BAKE for approximately 12 minutes or until cookies are puffed. Slide parchment off cookie sheet and cool on suitable countertop or wire racks. Slide on new batch and repeat.
