Triple Chocolate Soft Baked Cookies – A decadent soft baked cookie made with three kinds of chocolate: cocoa powder, chocolate chunks, and chocolate chips. An amazing dessert that will be loved my kids and adults alike!
I know I slacked off last month and didn’t give you a new cookie recipe, but in my defense, these blueberry muffin tops are made with sugar cookie dough so, if we’re splitting hairs, I technically gave you a cookie. And if I can get off on a technicality, then I’ll take it.
But in all seriousness, I am so sorry for leaving you without a cookie recipe for April. So for May, I came back stronger than ever with these bad boys: Triple Chocolate Soft Baked Cookies!
After giving up chocolate for lent, I came back strong than ever! The week after Easter, I was making molten chocolate cake, eating my giant peanut butter egg, and thinking up my next chocoholic baked good. Oh chocolate, how I missed you.
So when I started thinking about the next cookies recipe, I did not hesitate for one second – it had to be stuffed with chocolate!
And this recipe is just that. It has dark cocoa powder, semi-sweet chocolate chips, and dark chocolate chunks. Oh yes – when I come back, I come back HARD.
Not only are these cookies loaded with chocolate, they are super dense and soft, just like a brownie. Oh my yes. I particularly like eating them slightly warm so the chocolate is all melted and gooey in the center.
To make super soft cookies, there are a few changes that you need to make to a typical cookie recipe. Cornstarch has been to the mix, as well as some cake flour. Both of these additions lift the cookies to make them super soft, which also makes them slightly rounded on top. So for that reason, I flattened some them before baking. However, the ones below are some that I did not flatten, just so you get an idea of the options you have.
Before you get going on these decadent cookies, here are a few tips to make sure they turn out perfectly:
- The key to the super dark color of the dough is the dark chocolate cocoa powder. You can use regular cocoa powder, but be warned, it won’t be the same richness that you see in these cookies. If you’re a chocoholic like me, you’re gonna wanna use the dark chocolate powder. But don’t worry, the flavor isn’t bitter like a piece of dark chocolate. Instead, it taste more like a super rich brownie.
- The dough is super thick so when it chills, it will be really hard to work with. Therefore, it’s important that you form the dough into balls before you place the dough in the fridge.
- Cake flour is different than normal flour because it has much less gluten. Therefore, it is much lighter and is perfect for creating soft cookies. If you don’t have cake flour, there are tricks to making your own substitute. Here’s a great example from The Kitchn.
