Triple Chocolate Cookies Recipe from

For some time now, I’ve been making these chocolate cookies that seem to disappear faster than I can make them. You see, I have a son who loves chocolate as much, if not more, than I do.

How is that even possible!?

Anyway, these cookies have become one of his most requested cookies – along with chocolate chip, sugar and peanut butter. It’s like he is building his own list of top cookie recipes and he’s making sure he has all of his bases covered.

Smart boy.

I don’t think I could be prouder! Ha!

For these cookies, you begin with melting chocolate and a little butter, stirring until it is smooth and then allowing it to cool completely. While it cools, you’ll beat together your butter, sugar, and eggs until light and fluffy. You’ll think you’ve been beating the mixture together too long, but trust me, this part takes about five minutes to get it to just the right consistency.

Then, slow down your mixer and stir in the cooled chocolate until just combined and then stir in your dry ingredients. Drop scoops onto a prepared baking sheet, bake in your preheated oven and then voila! Step back and watch them be devoured.

Here’s my Triple Chocolate Cookie recipe. You are going to want to make these again and again!

These Triple Chocolate Cookies are a chocolate lovers delight! Filled with three kinds of chocolate, these soft, chewy cookies are a must-make family favorite recipe!


  • 11.5 ounces chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup (4 tablespoons ) butter , softened
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350º F. Line rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper or silicon baking mats.
  • Add semisweet chocolate chips and 2 tablespoons butter to saucepan over medium-low heat. Melt the chocolate and the butter together, stirring frequently until smooth and completely melted. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely, about 8-10 minutes.
  • Whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and cocoa powder in a large bowl. Set aside.
  • Fit stand mixer with paddle attachment. Add granulated sugar and butter to the bowl of the mixer and beat together until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add in eggs, one at a time, creaming together after each addition. Add in vanilla, making sure it is well combined.
  • Once all eggs and vanilla have been combined. Turn mixer speed up to medium high speed and beat until pale, light, and fluffy, about 7-10 minutes. Turn down speed of mixer and slowly stir in cooled and melted chocolate. Stir dry mixture until combined, then stir in milk chocolate chips.
  • Drop tablespoon scoops of cookie dough batter onto lined baking sheets, leaving about 3 inches between cookies to allow them to spread.
  • Place in preheated oven and bake 12-15 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely before removing from the baking sheet. The cookies are fragile while warm, so allow to cool completely before moving.

Recipe Review


    1. He definitely has strong opinions about it at times – especially where cookies are concerned!

  1. Smart Boy!! I’m a cookie lover like no other! I’d rather have a good cookie than pie or cake. Strange, I know! Pinning this!

    1. Not strange at all! I have a friend who feels exactly the same way. She likes that a cookie is all hers, no slicing, no serving, just hers. I love that!

    1. So sorry that wasn’t clear. You stir in the dry ingredients after you’ve added the melted chocolate and right before stirring in the chocolate chips. xo

  2. Cant wait to make this, ‘milk chocolate chips’? Not popular here in Africa,,,,,what other substitute do u recommend? Or cud i jst use plain milk? Thanks!

    1. In the UK chips are quite expensive, I always use a bar of chocolate and chop it up! Seems to work fine.

  3. Mmmmm. These look good. I have a different triple chocolate cookie recipe. I freeze the dough in balls and usually can’t wait to bake them and just eat the balls of dough.
    I think I’ll give these a try tomorrow!
    My first born doesn’t like chocolate. I know, it’s sad but I choose to look on the bright side which is that there are more cookies for me.

  4. Is the dough suppose to be a little on the runny side or are you suppose to be able to form them in a ball. I swear I followed the recipe exactly but my cookies were flat and did not stay chewy, but they still tasted incredible. I live in Colorado where it is very hard to get things to cook right, at least that is my excuse. Please help.

  5. Made this yesterday and they are very good. I would call them a “brookie” – a combination of cookie and brownie. I made two batches – one as listed and the other I substituted peanut butter chips for the milk chocolate chips. While both were chocolatey, the PB chips won in my household.

  6. These look amazing! And I have the same problem with chocolate disappearing in my house…only it’s my daughter! She loves to be in the kitchen so I think we will make a batch of these this week (and save some dough for the freezer) ! Thanks for sharing!

  7. I am having a problem with melting the chocolate chips and the butter….it is like not melting..just turning into like a soft dough… you have the right amount down here…i am confused

  8. Hi! I’m curious about your answers to some of the questions in the comments and I have one more. 🙂 It seems like it’s such a small amount of flour and butter and sugar…have the amounts been double checked or is this on purpose for a small amount of dough? Will it double nicely?

    1. Hi Wendy,
      Yes, the amounts are correct in the recipe. The recipe yields about 24 nice sized cookies. You can double the recipe easily if more are needed. Hope you love them!

  9. Would love to try these!! I have a question about the 11.5 ounces of chocolate chips, is that a weight measurement or volume? Or, about how many cups is that equal to? Thanks!

  10. 5 stars
    I just made these tonight for the kids and I have to say with the ingredients I was skeptical…my chocolate also turned spongy…only half cup of flour….
    But they were amazing! You are my go to for everything recipes! Thank you!
