Triple Chocolate Cookies
You guys, chocolate is amazing. There’s a reason why people used to consider it the food of the gods. If you’re not convinced yet, these triple chocolate cookies should do the job! There’s cocoa, melted chocolate, and chocolate chips. It might seem extravagant, but I love biting into these and feeling that hit of deep, rich chocolate flavor.
Note: I made these triple chocolate cookies chewy and moist because I don’t want to have to work for my cookie. However, if you like crispy cookies, omit the second egg and leave them in the oven for a minute or two long. You also technically don’t have to let the dough rest, but the flavor just becomes that much more complex. Trust me: if you have the time, it’s worth it.
- 1 2/3 cups dark chocolate chips
- 1 cup flour
- 1/4 cup cocoa
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 cup room temperature butter
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
First, sift the flour, cocoa, salt, and baking soda into a medium bowl. Beat butter, brown sugar, and white sugar in a large bowl until fluffy. Set aside.
Next, melt 2/3 cup chocolate chips in the microwave for 15-second intervals until melted, stirring between each interval. Add the melted chocolate to the butter and sugar mixture. Add the vanilla and the eggs. Finally, mix in the flour, stirring until just combined. Add remaining chocolate chips. Cover the bowl and let it rest in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
After the dough has rested, scoop onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 325 F for 14 to 16 minutes, until tops are cracked. Cool on a wire rack. Enjoy with a whopping glass of milk!
