If you are not a choclaholic, then you might as well just keep on scrolling because there is nothing for you to see here.
Still with me? Today, we will be freebasing chocolate. Just kidding. But this might be the next best thing: triple chocolate cookies. They taste a lot like a rich chocolate brownie, but with that chewy gooey cookie texture. They’re decadent, they’re delicious, and I ate myself sick on them (what else is new?) You’ll want a tall, cold glass of milk (or nice bowl of vanilla ice cream) at the ready for these babies.
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder (I used Hersheys unsweetened)
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels
3.5 oz (1 bar) high-qulity chocolate (I used 72% dark) chopped
1 stick (8 tbsp) of butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
Start by combining the flour (1 cup), cocoa powder (1/2 cup), baking soda (1/2 tsp), and salt (1/2 tsp) in a medium bowl.
Then, in a separate large bowl, melt the chocolate chips (1/2 cup) and butter (1 stick). I did this by microwaving the mixture for 30 second intervals and stirring between each one. Careful not to microwave it longer than necessary.
Once the chocolate is melted and smooth, add the sugar (1 1/2 cup), eggs (2), and vanilla (1 tsp). Mix them until combined. Then gradually add the flour mixture. Last, mix in the chopped candy bar.
Stick the dough in the fridge for 20-30 minutes, or until the dough has stiffened a little. This will make it easier to work with and give you prettier cookies. Preheat your oven to 325°F and space cookies about 2″ apart on a cookie tray lined with parchment paper. My cookies were each the size of a generous tablespoon. Bake for 14 minutes and let cool before eating.
On that note, Jason and I are headed off to Maui this weekend for our first real vacation as a couple. As much as we travel, it’s always for work or to visit family. So this is an extra special trip for us. While I’m gone, I’ve got some amazing guest posts lined up and I’m sure you’ll be hearing from me a little, too.
Have a great weekend!
