Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies

Picture of Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies
These cookies are packed with three types of chocolate, sweetened with good quality vanilla, with a touch of salt for that true addictive quality. Great with a cup of tea or coffee for a mid morning snack (or as a sugar rush when you're late first thing as I often am), it's a struggle to contain yourself to just one.

Step 1: Ingredients and Equipment

Picture of Ingredients and Equipment
This recipe makes around 16-20 cookies, depending on your scoop size.

  • 170 g unsalted butter
  • 100 g caster sugar
  • 200 g light brown/light muscovado sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 250 g plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 100 g white chocolate
  • 100 g milk chocolate
  • 100 g dark chocolate

  • Large mixing bowl
  • Wooden spoon/Spatula
  • Measuring cups/scales
  • Measuring spoons
  • Chopping board & a sharp knife
  • Baking trays and parchment
  • Cookie scoop if you have one, or a couple of tablespoons
  • Cooling rack
  • An oven, preheated to 180 C/350 F/Gas 4
(An electric mixer will make your life easier, but if you've got a fairly strong arm a wooden spoon will do just as well)

For anyone without scales, a good weight to volume conversion guide can be found here.

Step 2: Chocolate

First, chop up all of the chocolate into small chunks. You could use chocolate chips instead to make your life easier, but I like the irregularity of hand chopped pieces, and the way the stray shavings make their way through all of the cookie dough, spreading chocolate through every bite.

Step 3: Butter & Sugar

Soften the butter in the microwave. Put both of the sugars into a large mixing bowl, then add the butter. Beat together the butter and sugar until they are well combined.

Step 4: Egg & Vanilla

Add the egg, egg yolk and vanilla into the mixture and beat again until everything is well combined.

Now add the flour, bicarb and salt. Mix by hand until the flour is combined and a dough has formed.

Tip in the chocolate chips and mix these in well.
