Chocolate Espresso Crinkle Cookies

These chewy chocolate espresso crinkle cookies are perfect for the holiday season! The delicious coffee flavor comes from a freshly brewed espresso. Two different kinds of sugar improve the taste and enhance the visual crinkle texture. Raw Criollo cocoa powder gives the slightly tart, chocolaty aftertaste!
