Well today was supposed to be a Daring Bakers Challenge post, but that's not happening.
Instead I'm going to share the recipe for those rich looking cookies from Robert's birthday party, my favourite Triple Chocolate Cookie recipe.
It's based on an old Family Circle recipe with a little tweaking. Make sure you use Large eggs, not Extra Large as it will make a difference.
Try to use nice quality chocolate and cocoa I used a good Belgium brand, but whatever you like eating will probably work.
Sometimes I replace some of the dark choc chips with Macadamia nuts and they become oh so yummy triple chocolate macadamia cookies.
However you make them I hope you enjoy them they have been a favourite of mine for years.
Triple Chocolate Cookies - makes about 25 large cookies
1 1/2 cups plain (all purpose) flour
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups soft brown sugar
180g (6 and 3/8 ounce) unsalted butter
150g (5 1/4 ounce) dark chocolate, chopped
3 large eggs lightly beaten
3/4 cup dark choc chips
3/4 cup white choc chips
Preheat oven to 180 C (375 F), line a couple of trays with baking paper.
Sift flour, cocoa and brown sugar into a mixing bowl.
Combine butter and chocolate in a bowl and melt in microwave on short bursts at med/low mixing well between each session.
Add butter mixture and eggs to dry ingredients and mix until combined, do not overbeat.
Stir in choc bits.
Drop about 2 tablespoon for each cookie onto tray, flatten slightly and bake for 12 mins.
Cool for 5 mins before transferring to a wire rack to cool.
