Saturday was a happy day. I spent the entire afternoon baking these triple chocolate cookies and just baking and tasting gave me a chocolate high. The recipe is the same as these Chocolate Chip Cookies but they have cocoa and white chocolate chunks in them. These are certainly much more richer and decadent than CCC so they are perfect with black coffee or a cold glass of milk.
1 3/4 cup All purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder (use 1/4 cup if using dark cocoa and substitute rest with all purpose flour)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 sticks butter (approx 220 grams) at room temperature
1/2 cup sugar (don't use powdered)
1/2 cup condensed milk
1 cup dark chocolate chunks / large chocolate chips
1/2 cup white chocolate chips or chocolate chunks
Preheat the oven to 400F (200 C). Line baking trays with parchment paper.
Cream the butter and sugar together for about 5 minutes with a mixer on medium speed. The butter will become pale in color and increase in volume as well. Then add the condensed milk and vanilla and beat well to mix. In another bowl, sift the flour, cocoa and baking powder together (you can also just whisk them together to mix well). Mix the flour into the butter mixture a couple of spoons at a time with a spatula. When all the flour is incorporated into the butter, fold the chocolate chips into it. Do not beat the mixture. Place the dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. This will harden the butter and not spread the cookies as much when baked. Take 1 1/2 inch balls of dough (roughly - they don't have to be perfect) and place them on the baking tray keeping about 2-3 inch distance between two dough balls.
Bake for about 10-12 minutes, since they are dark in color it is difficult to judge doneness. The center may not be firm but they will continue to cook and harden outside the oven. Remove from oven and cool them on a wire rack. Do not cool on a plate as the moisture on the base of the cookie will make them soggy.
Enjoy with coffee or a glass of cold milk! To store, place in a air tight container once they are completely cooled.
