Music City Chocolate Mocha Cookies - Edible Nashville 

Like every other town in America, Nashville is experiencing an explosion in coffee houses. Bongo Java and its sister cafes serve coffee from the Bongo Java Roasting Company, which sources organic coffee from small-scale farmers. This coffee is the main ingredient in these chocolatey cookies, but you can use your favorite brand. Sorghum is popular in the south, but you can use maple syrup in its place.
