Triple Chocolate Cookies by Ree

This is something fun to do with good food so we wanted to post it for you! Eat well!

We had boys, boys, boys, boys, boys, and boys at our house after church yesterday and I don’t know why I forget just how much food boys consume when they’re together in a pack, but they pretty much wiped me out. Then I made a big batch of the most chocolaty cookies I’ve ever eaten…

And they pretty much wiped me out of those, too. Which was probably just as well, considering I’m trying to be a good girl these days.

And actually, I’m not trying to be a good girl at all. But that’s another story for another time.

These are just like my Chocolate Chocolate White Chocolate Chip Cookies, but they’re all chocolate, all the time. There’s absolutely no respite from the chocolate with these cookies…and of course, that’s just the kind of situation a chocoholic wants to be in.

Start with butter and sugar…

Wait. It’s Monday. Let’s just take a moment to enjoy this beautiful sight.


Beat it together until it’s totes combined.

Crack in an egg…

And mix it in, scraping the bowl when it’s incorporated.

Then add the other egg and do the same thing!

Add vanilla…

And give it a final mix.

Now, to turn the cookies into chocolate wonders, sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.

Sing it with me, brothers and sisters: “Love sifted me! Love sifted me! When nothing else could help, love sifted me!”

Ugh, I love old hymns. They are everything. (When sung correctly.)

Add the dry mixture a cup or so at a time, mixing after each addition…

Until it’s all added in…

And the dough looks like this.

My word.

I’m obsessed with these! They carry them in my small-town grocery store right alongside the regular ol’ chocolate chips and I love them.

(Pssst. The milk chocolate chips are oversized and they make a nice treat whenever you need a little chocolate hit.)

(And I need a little chocolate hit several times a day.)

For these cookies, I’m doing a combo of semi-sweet chips…

And milk chocolate chips.

(The milk chocolate sweetens the cookies a bit, so if you’re looking for a super deep chocolate experience, use semi-sweet for the full amount.)

I’m going to entitle this photo “I Am Going to Lick This.”

Alternate title: “I Am Going to Like This.”

I used a cookie scoop but didn’t level it off, so I’d say each cookie was a heaping tablespoon or so.

Scoop ’em onto a cookie sheet (or sheets, if you want to bake them all at once.)

Then I like to press 2 or 3 chocolate chips into the top before they go into the oven. Milk chocolate if you like things sweeter, semi-sweet if you like things more chocolaty, both if you like…well, both!

The secret to these cookies is not to overbake them. You’ll want to take them out of the oven when you’re not 100% sure they’re done. That will ensure they’re perfect!

Unabashedly chocolicious!

Oh, and one thing I forgot to mention: A glass of milk is definitely required for these suckers.
