Triple Chocolate Cookies

Listen, I love classic chocolate chip cookies as much as anyone, but sometimes you just need more than a single dose of the good stuff. I’m talking about chocolate, class it up you guys! Today we’re talking about the most chocolatey cookies, like, ever.

I actually made these last month when things were a bit crazy at work, and since these go so well with coffee, I’m officially calling them a breakfast item.

So, this may sound a bit inexperienced, but I have never used dutch processed (or dark) cocoa powder before now! It’s amazing. I always have an issue with my baked goods not tasting quite as chocolatey as I’d like, and this is changing my life. I’m using Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa Powder. If you’re looking for a deep chocolate flavor, this is the way to go.

These cookies are chocolate layered on chocolate, and any chocolate lover will go crazy for them, I promise. The three chocolate sources are regular chocolate chips, mini chocolate chips, and the cocoa powder.

There’s a few ingredients that will help intensify the chocolate flavor in any recipe. The first is salt, which of course brings out any flavors in baking, not just chocolate. Then we’ve got vanilla extract, which may seem almost counter-intuitive since many people think of vanilla as an opposite flavor. In baking though, the two are actually very complimentary! Cinnamon is another great option- just a pinch will give your chocolate a kick. Lastly, we’ve got coffee or espresso products. Again, just a small pinch can make a big difference, and the end result won’t actually taste like coffee.

This recipe uses all of these methods to bring out that chocolate flavor. Seriously, when I say triple chocolate, I really mean they taste chocolatey! 

Enjoy!
