Triple Chocolate Cookie recipe - my fav chocolate cookie eva

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.


  1. How's that for timing! I'm looking for a new choc chip cookie recipe and here's one! Thanks. :)

  2. Family Circle and the Women's Weekly are my favourite sources for excellent recipes like this. Have bookmarked this page to try them. Can't say no to a great chocolate cookie!

  3. Triple chocolate is probably triple good!

  4. Yummmy :) Very few things in life as good as some seriously good chokky bikkies, these look great.

  5. I am content with these rich and delicious triple chocolate cookies instead of doughnuts :-)

  6. They do look really good I have to say! :) I missed out on DB this month too. Too much going on *sigh*

  7. I know a lot of people (in my house) who would much prefer these cookies over a DB Donut! They are scrumptious, rich, chocolate-y great!

  8. Oh you were serious when you said triple ... cocoa, dark, more dark and white. My type of cookies :-)

  9. Yummy! Yummy! Yummy! For that triple chocolate fever! Wow! I should better try this one. Thanks a lot. My hubby will surely love this.

  10. Can I ask when you put the eggs in?
