Triple Chocolate Cookies! YUMMY!!!!


When my daughter and I were shopping for her new school clothes a few weeks ago, we stopped at the mall food court to recharge in between stores and grab some lunch.  We went to a little cafe/sandwich shop there that had these amazing little triple chocolate cookie chippers that my little one and I have both been craving ever since.

Of Course, she wanted me to just go back and buy more, I however decided to try to recreate the recipe at home...you know so that we could have them over and over instead of just when I have time to go to the mall.  It's a baking version of the whole teach a man to fish, he'll eat for life philosophy... kind of deep for a cookie craving, huh?!

Anyway, we mostly just went with the recipe of the back of a bag of Nestle white chocolate chips...the results were pretty close and we ate them all in about 24 hours!  (All 8 of us...not just my daughter and I!)





Wihisk or sift together your dry ingredients.


Cream together butter and sugars.


Beat on medium high until fluffy.


Add in the dry ingredients and mix until incorporated.  Add in the chips.


Press the dough out onto a piece of wax or parchment paper.  Form it into a rectangle about 1/2" thick.


Cut into 1" squares.





Place on cookie sheets about 1 1/2" to 2" apart.


Bake for 10-12 minutes.


Allow cookies to cool on the cookie sheet for a minute before moving them to a cooling rack to cool completely.


Now try not to eat them all in one sitting! : D


Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies
makes about 5 dozen cookies

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup cocoa
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350F.

Whisk together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt in a bowl.  Beat butter, both sugars and vanilla together in a mixing bowl until fluffy and creamy.  Add eggs, one at a time, being sure to mix in completely between additions.  Add flour mixture in a bit at a time, scraping the sides of the bowl with a spatula when necessary.  Add in both chips and stir until well incorporated.

Place a large piece of parchment or wax paper down on a flat surface like an island or counter.  Scoop the cookie dough out on to it and flatten into a 9x13 sized rectangle, about 1/2 inch thick.  Cut into squares about 1 to 1 1/2 inches.  Place on baking sheets about an inch apart and bake for 10-12 minutes.  Allow to cool for a minute on the cookie sheets, then move to a cooling rack.
