Hands up if you are ready to indulge? Chocolate lovers everywhere unite for the most fudgy, chocolatey, gooey cookie yet. I have a major soft spot for cookies and would prefer a good cookie over a piece of cake - call me crazy! So I'm pretty excited about these Triple Chocolate Chunk Cookies, that take a chocolate cookie to the next level. They are the perfect weekend treat.
If you need to satisfy a raging chocolate craving than these are the cookies for you. A good dose of cocoa in the cookie dough plus generous chunks of dark chocolate and white chocolate, means there is literally a piece of chocolate in every bite.
Like my Chocolate Fudge Cookies, I chopped up my own chocolate pieces, rather than using chocolate chips, to ensure they are extra chunky. There is nothing quite like biting into a cookie and getting gooey chocolate all over your teeth.
Triple Chocolate Chunk Cookies
Makes 16 cookies
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup caster sugar
115 grams (1 stick or 1/2 cup) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 cup plain flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cornflour
1/2 cup cocoa
1 tablespoon milk
1/2 cup dark chocolate chunks
1/4 cup white chocolate chunks
Plus extra chocolate chunks for decorating
Line two baking trays with baking paper. In a large mixing bowl, add the butter, brown sugar and caster sugar and beat with an electric mixer until combined. Add the vanilla and the egg and beat for a minute or until combined. Sift in the flour, baking soda, cornflour and cocoa into the mixture and stir. If its a little dry, add the tablespoon of milk and then mix in both the dark chocolate and white chocolate chunks.
Cover the dough and place in the fridge to chill for at least 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees (360 F) and roll balls of the dough in your hands until smooth and place onto the prepared trays. Bake in the oven for approximately 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool. While they are still warm, gently decorate with extra chocolate chunks before devouring one still warm from the oven.
