A few years back, I was a contributing writer on another site, and shared this recipe there. I’ve typically pointed folks back there to grab the recipe (and headed there to look for it myself!) however, it appears that the site is now defunct. As such, I have decided to repost it here!
Sometimes, we just need chocolate.
Occasionally, we need it in large quantities.
Allow me to introduce the Triple Chocolate Cookie.
We start out just like any good chocolate chip cookie, by creaming some butter and sugar.
Combine with that an egg and some vanilla. Then mix in your flour, salt, baking soda & powder, and cocoa powder. Finally, the all important baking chips.
Spoon out onto a foil or parchment lined baking sheet,
and bake at 350* for about 12 minutes.
If you make cookies in that miniscule, cute little size that means they are a “recommended serving”, you should get about 30. I think I got 22 in Real Women Cookies. (We started eating before I thought to count them. Sorry!)
½ cup unsalted butter, room temperature
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 ½ cups all purpose flour
¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
½ cup white baking chips
*(I’ve also done these with milk chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, candy-covered chocolates, etc. Mix it up! I’ve not tried them yet, but my son mentioned mint chips, which you could use as well!)
Preheat your oven to 350⁰ F.
Cream the butter and sugars in a large bowl using an electric mixer on high speed. Lower the speed to medium and add the egg and vanilla. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. With the mixer on low, incorporate the dry ingredients into the butter mixture. Fold in the chocolate/baking chips.
Form the dough into balls and place approximately 2 inches apart on a foil or parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake for about 12 minutes, or until centers are set. Let rest on cookie sheet for 5 minutes, then move to a wire cooling rack.
Be sure to have ample amounts of milk on hand for these chocolatey faves!
