I tried using both regular chocolate cake mix and Devil's Food cake mix at different times. Personally, I prefer Devil's Food cake mix to the other one because of a more intense taste. My recommendation to you is to use whatever is handy or on sale.
In our circle of friends, there are a handful of people not be able to have caffeine. It could cause some physical problems to them, such as accelerated heartbeat and hand shaking. Therefore, be mindful when you serve this recipe for devils food. If possible, switch to decaf instant coffee mix in packets.
I love these chocolate mocha cookies loaded with icing. But I also understand that some people are conscious about the sugar intake. Feel free to cut the quantity of icing ingredients into halves. When you top it on the cookies, it will be a super thin layer of icing. Anybody enjoys these cookies will feel less guilty of the sugar consumption.
For Cookie Batter
1 Box Devil's Food Cake Mix
1/3 cup (2.6oz / 76g) Canola Oil
1/2 cup (4oz / 113g) Butter (softened at room temperature)
4 small packets of Expresso Coffee Mix (Unsweetened; cut the quantity into half will help to lessen the flavor and strength of the caffeine. But it is optional. In this recipe, 4 small packets of coffee mix is the maximum amount to add into the icing. Otherwise, the coffee flavor will be too overpowering.)
2 cups (16oz / 454g) Confectionery Powdered Sugar
2 tbsp Milk
Chocolate sprinkles (for garnish; optional)
