I love cookies. I really do. Over the years I think I’ve started to perfect a never-fail recipe – I like my cookies crisp on the outside, soft and gooey in the middle and with plenty of chocolate – because I am a fully fledged chocoholic (and shopaholic, but that’s for another post). Yesterday I made some pretty tasty triple chocolate cookies and they were so delicious, I wanted to share the recipe. This is the perfect activity for a rainy Sunday afternoon like today.
- 125g plain chocolate chips
- 100g white chocolate
- 100g milk chocolate
- 150g plain flour
- 30g cocoa powder
- 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 125g soft butter
- 75g light brown sugar
- 50g white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 170c/ 325f/ gas mark 3
- Melt the plain chocolate chips in a bowl and set aside. NB: only melt the plain choc!
- Combine the flour, cocoa powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt in a bowl and set aside.
- Cream the butter and sugars together until smooth, then add the melted chocolate.
- Beat in an egg, add the vanilla extract.
- Add in your dry ingredients from step 2 and mix, mix, mix.
- Cut your white and milk chocolate into chunks (quartering each square works best for me) and distribute evenly into the mixture.
- Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper and add your cookie dough! I find that thick hockey-puck shapes work best – they flatten in the oven. Ensure you have ample room between each cookie or they’ll merge into one!
- Cook for 17-18 minutes in the oven and leave to cool on the baking tray for 5 minutes. At first they’ll seem under cooked, but don’t worry, they harden as they cool. Transfer to a cooling rack and enjoy!
This recipe bakes about 18 cookies (6 per tray).
