Triple Chocolate Cookies

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.

Adapted from here.

Ingredients:

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!

  9. You need to stop posting all of these amazing recipes all the time because now my list keeps growing of things to try from your blog!! Luckily I already have most all of these ingredients on hand so I might just have to give this a whirl this weekend. Hope you have an amazing time on your trip, can’t wait to hear about it and see pics!

    • It’s funny that you say that about having all the ingredients on hand, because that’s how these happened. I was bored. So I baked. Then I ate myself sick on them. Then I tried to give the rest away to 2 different homeless people. Both said no. So I threw them away. I do NOT need them on my hips in Hawaii! But they’re sooo good! I might make them for Christmas with red & green M&Ms instead of the candy bar…

      • I’m pretty sure if I make them I’ll eat myself sick on them too. And what the heck, who says no to cookies? Next time you have leftovers, send em my way!! Of course my hips definitely don’t need them either. Making them with m&ms is an awesome idea! On a side note, maybe I’ll try that this weekend. I’m sure they have Halloween edition m&ms right?

      • OMG use Reeces Pieces! It would be sooo good! I actually smeared peanut butter on these and it was AMAZING… so I’m 100% sure that would be yummy.

      • AHHH!! That is the best idea ever. OK- done. I am going to the store after work to pick up the extra ingredients I need!

    oooh! that looks delicious!!

  12. So, I’m making these for the 2nd time since I had enough leftover ingredients. SO addicting!!

    Stephanie

    • I’m glad you liked them! I was actually a little worried since you didn’t say how they came out. But, come on, how could you not be hooked?

      • AH! I am the worst for forgetting to follow up. They were gone in like 2 days the first time I made them hahah. John and I LOVED them!! I’m definitely hooked now, and it’s dangerous. (as I reach into my desk drawer and pull out the bag of cookies I brought with me…)
