Triple Chocolate Cookies

Hello Everyone!

As it is nearing the middle of Winter here in New Zealand, there is nothing better than cosying up in front of the fire with a good book and a warm cookie straight from the oven. My number one favourite cookie will always be chocolate chip (you can find the recipe here), but over the weekend I was really in the mood for something a bit more chocolate-y. After checking Pinterest for a few ideas, I settled on triple chocolate cookies (because who doesn’t want 3 times the amount of chocolate?!). For these cookies I decided to use a recipe for plain chocolate cookies which I’ve had since my year 7 cooking class, and add in a few handfuls of chocolate chips, so I am not entirely sure where this recipe is orginally from. You all know I like to credit the authors of the recipes that I share with you on this blog so if you know where the orginal recipe is from, please let me know 🙂

Let’s get started!

Note: This recipe makes about 18 biscuits depending on the size that you decide to make them.

You Will Need:

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cornflour
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup milk chocolate chips

What To Do:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celcius and line 2-3 baking trays with greaseproof paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add in the egg and vanilla essence and beat well until combined.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt and cornflour. Gradually add to the wet ingredients, mixing well after each addition.
  5. Carefully stir in the chocolate chips.
  6. Roll the mixture into balls and place evenly on the baking trays (make sure to leave enough room around each ball for them to spread).
  7. Place in the oven and bake for 11 minutes. They should look slightly doughy when taken out of the oven so be sure not to over cook them.
  8. Allow to cool for 10 minutes on the baking tray before moving them onto a wire rack to cool completely.

    These have quickly become one of my favourite cookies so I will definitely be making them again. I would love to know what you think of them 🙂
