Leave it to an 8-year-old to choose Triple Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies as the variety of dark chocolate cookie he wanted me to make “just for him.” His love for chocolate is all the proof I would ever need that he is, for sure, my child. His love of dark chocolate is crazy to me though. As a child I preferred milk chocolate candy, and as an adult, I still do. But, he’s loved dark chocolate since the first time he tried it, and he’s been slowly converting me lately because all these dark chocolate recipes I’ve been making are SO good!
This Triple Dark Chocolate Chip cookie is one of 3 variations of dark chocolate cookies I made in one weekend. I also made Dark Chocolate Walnut Cookies and Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel Cookies. This one is Jaxon’s favorite. He kept stealing all the different chocolate chips (milk, dark, and white chocolate!) as I was making them. He was supposed to be helping! After I cut off his chocolate chip supply, he went to watch TV…until it was taste testing time! Of course, he had to try a few, just to be sure they were really as good he thought!
These chocolate cookies should come out thin with a chewy center and crispy edges. You can mix all the chocolate chips into the batter before baking, but I’d also press a few extras into the top of the raw dough before baking as well, if you want to be able to see some of the chips in all that dark chocolate goodness! This is one rich cookie, so make sure you’ve got your milk ready!
I will STRONGLY encourage you to wait until the cookies are completely cool before removing them from the baking sheet. In my impatience I broke a few, but when I slowed down and let them cool, they came off without a problem. I don’t know if it’s just my kid, but he refuses to eat broken cookies. He actually chose to eat my boyfriend’s gluten free version of these cookies instead of the broken ones! When he decides he’s not going to do something, he goes all the way with it, that’s for sure!
I’ll be playing around with the recipe a little more to try to create a fatter, chewy cookie and maybe a crispy version too. Everyone likes their cookies a certain way. I prefer chewy, thin or fat is good with me! How do you like yours? Do you eat the broken cookies? Haha!
If you like this recipe you may also like my:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cream the butter and sugar together in a mixer on medium speed. Add the eggs one at a time, then the vanilla.
In a separate medium sized bowl, mix together the flour, dark cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Gradually add the mixture to the wet ingredients in the mixer until well combined.
You can either mix in the chocolate chips now, then roll the dough into 1 inch balls, or roll the dough into one inch balls and press some chips into the top (like I did for the cookies in the photo. Place dough balls 2 inches apart, as cookies will spread while baking.
Bake for 8-10 minutes. LET COOL before removing from the baking sheet.
