One of the best parts of only giving myself one cheat day a week is having 6 days to brainstorm these concoctions. I’m now heading into my 4th week of eating clean and I am wishing I had thought to remake these cookies. Triple chocolate chip cookies are now a thing in our house. These cookies measure about 4 1/2 inches wide. They are soft, chewy, and oooooh so chocolatey.
I drizzled dark chocolate and white chocolate on alternating cookies. The kids were skeptical at first. They have a hard time believing there is white chocolate. According to them chocolate is brown and anything white is icing. I say that is fair. The white chocolate drizzle does add a really nice vanilla flavor where the dark chocolate adds enough bitterness to break up the triple chocolate inside the cookie.
I scrolled through dozens of chocolate chip cookie recipes online that were quoted as “the best”. I know everyone has a different idea of what “the best” is. Patrick thinks a cookie that is super chewy and close to cake-like with lots of melty chocolate is the best. I personally love something a little closer to the classic Nestle recipe. Slightly crispy on the outside and very soft in the middle.
These cookies have the slightest crunch on the very outside, but the rest of the cookie is so soft and soooo packed with chocolate. Using dark brown sugar helps give almost a toffee like flavor which is definitely my favorite!
