Chocolate Coca-Cola Cookies

After being inspired by making cherry vanilla coca-cola cupcakes a few weeks ago, I decided to try another soda flavored dessert. To be honest, I tried a few types of desserts, including Coca-Cola brownies that wont seem to turn out the way I want no matter how hard I try! Maybe someday I will figure those out. In the meantime, I decided to try my hand at some chocolate Coca-Cola cookies. And these turned out absolutely perfectly.

As I’ve mentioned before, Coca-Cola is my favorite type of soda. And that is why I keep making fun desserts with it. This time I’m using the classic flavor of Coke, so I thought I should use the classic flavor of chocolate to go with it.

These cookies have a crispy outside, are chewy and fudgy inside, and are a very rich chocolate flavor. And that makes these some of the best cookies I’ve ever made. I’ve tried these cookies without the cola and they taste ok, but the Coca-Cola makes them truly outstanding!

How to make Chocolate Coca-Cola Cookies

For these Chocolate Coca-Cola recipe the Coca-Cola is boiled down to a thicker syrup that makes the cola flavor a lot stronger. The Coca-Cola syrup adds a depth of flavor in these cookies that doesn’t exist without it. They don’t end up being too sweet though, which is important.

Besides being really delicious, they are also incredibly pretty. I loved taking photos of them, especially with the bright red Coca-Cola can next to them. I may have overdone it with the photos, but its still true that they are very pretty. If you give these out to other people they are sure to be impressed by both their flavor and their appearance.

  1. I tried this recipe for my christmas cookie list and wanted something new and unique! I saw the reviews and got alittle worried, but what the heck! Lets try it anyway! They are okay! ONLY because if i told you there was coca cola in these you would have never believed me. If your just making chocolate cookies there good! I chilled it for 30 minutes in the fridge cause I felt it was alittle too wet. I think longer would have made it better! This was my first time so who knows! just wanted to let others see so there not discouraged to make these with those other reviews!
