Print Recipe


  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
  • 2 teaspoons instant espresso powder
  • 1 cup brickle chips
  • 1 cup almonds sliced
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons half and half or milk


  • Preheat the oven to 375°. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl combine the flour, baking soda and salt, whisk together and set aside.
  • Place the chocolate in a small microwaveable bowl and microwave in 10-20 second increments, stirring after each until chocolate is melted. Add the espresso powder and stir to combine. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl combine the butter, sugar and brown sugar and mix with an electric mixer until creamy, 1-2 minutes. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until well combined. Add the chocolate mixture and beat until thoroughly combined, about 1 minute.
  • Stir in the brickle chips.
  • Scoop dough into rounded teaspoons and drop about 2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes until done. Remove from oven and cool on cookie sheet for 3-5 minutes, then transfer cookies to a cooling rack to cool completely. Continue with the rest of the cookie dough.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine the powdered sugar and half and half, stirring until smooth.
  • When the cookies have cooled to room temperature, drizzle the glaze over them and let stand until glaze hardens.
  • Store in an airtight container.
