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 cookies, sugar cookies and peanut butter cookies. 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!

Recipe Review


  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

    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

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