My daughter loves chocolate. Milk chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate, chocolate with nuts, chocolate with mint, chocolate cookies, chocolate desserts… you name a chocolate food and Natalie will be all over it.
She is a chocolate maniac and has been jonesing for some homemade cookies, so it’s no surprise that when I had each of my kids pick a cookie recipe to make while we watched movies, she chose these super soft, rich, decadent Triple Chocolate Cookies and Carter chose his favorite Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies.
I have to be honest, it was a struggle to not devour the entire bowl of cookie dough. The chocolate cookie dough, even before the chocolate chips are added, is amazing. If you’re a chocoholic and cookie dough lover, you’re totally going to be sneaking dough balls right off the baking sheets while they wait to go in the oven — just like my Dad always did when I was a kid!
Because Carter and Natalie were both baking cookies at the same time, oven space was at a premium. While Carter won the right to bake his Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies first, we snuck in one sheet of Natalie’s Triple Chocolate Cookies because her batter was much more gooey and we wanted to see how much they would spread and whether we needed to chill the dough.
The spreading was negligible, really no more than Carter’s cookies, so you don’t have to chill the dough, and that means you can go from cookie dough to hot baked cookies in no time!
The trick to keeping these cookies soft and chewy is not to overbake them. When the timer goes off, take the cookies out of the oven even if they don’t look completely done. Because they are a chocolate cookie, you won’t be able to easily see them browning.
With unsweetened cocoa powder and three different types of chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips, and white chocolate chips, these soft Triple Chocolate Cookies will definitely satisfy the chocolate lover in your family.
