Mocha Cornflakes Cookies are cookies made with chocolate – coffee flavor . The cookies are crunchy as they are coated with cornflakes .
When it comes to a mid morning snack cookies work very well , paired with a cup of coffee or tea they pep you up for a couple of hours till you have your lunch . To be frank I am no cookie lover and neither do I drink tea or coffee , but yes this is what most people prefer as their mid morning snack . I will not look far , my younger daughter is a great tea fan and loves it around eleven with a nice crunchy cookie . So here I am with a Mocha Cornflakes Cookie with some black tea for the theme Elevenses . This is my Day 3 post , the previous two days I posted Home made Namkeen and Nimbu Paani .
These cookies taste amazing and the flavour is awesome , they are bittersweet cookies where you enjoy both chocolate as well as coffee flavours . The cookie is coated with cornflakes which gives them a super crunch , besides that rustic look . I have made similar cookies with chocolate flavour , but Mocha is a flavour which is so lingering and you surely cannot stop at one !
