Thick, soft, chewy and crammed with chocolate chunks; these triple chocolate cookies just melt in the mouth.
Ever since tasting the huge chocolate cookies from Sainsbury’s I have been on a quest to make my own just like them. There is a part of me which wishes I didn’t know the exact ingredients required to make these delicious cookies! Nevermind, we all require a special treat from time to time.
My photos don’t do these triple chocolate cookies justice. They are, quite simply, the best cookies I’ve ever tasted. Chewy yet soft, fudgy, densely chocolatey, and oh-so-indulgent. I actually make noises of appreciation every time I eat one!!
The recipes either makes 12 large or 24 small cookies. Normally I would always go for a larger cookie but these are so rich that a smaller one is just right (you can always go back for seconds…).
TRIPLE CHOCOLATE COOKIES
- 250g dark chocolate
- 150g unsalted butter
- 100g light brown soft sugar
- 75g golden caster sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 medium egg
- 175g plain flour
- 15g cocoa powder
- 1 tsp baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 100g milk chocolate
- 100g white chocolate
1. Preheat the oven to 160°C fan/180°C. Grease and line 2 baking trays.
2. Melt 150g of the dark chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of barely simmering water. Allow to cool slightly.
3. Cream together the butter and sugars. Add the vanilla extract and the egg and beat again (adding a spoonful of the flour at this stage will stop the mixture from curdling).
4. Mix the melted chocolate into the mixture.
5. Sieve the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Fold into the cookie mixture.
6. Chop the remaining dark, milk and white chocolate into chunks (you can use chocolate chips if you prefer – I like the randomness of chopped chocolate). Stir into the cookie dough.
7. Divide into 12 large or 24 small balls. Place on the prepared baking trays, well spaced apart. Flatten slightly and bake for 12 minutes (large) or 8 minutes (small). Do not overcook, these cookies should be soft in the middle, and will firm up as they cool.
8. Leave to cool for a few minutes on the tray before removing to a wire rack with a palette knife.
