One is a lonely number.

A cookie that incorporates chocolate 3 ways, (because really, 3 isn’t a crowd when it comes to chocolate)

Perfect for fans of dark chocolate, the dough has a heavy handful of cocoa powder, semi-sweet chocolate chips and white chocolate chips.

These are so easy to make, great for kids (or adults), and are an all-around yummy cookie. You’ll find yourself going to these over and over again, more than three times I’m sure.

Recipe:

2 cups plus two tablespoons flour                                              2 large eggs

3/4 cup unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder         2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 teaspoon baking soda                                                                   1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1/2 teaspoon salt                                                                               1/2 cup white chocolate chips

2 1/2 sticks unsalted butter

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 1/2 cups sugar

 

  1. In a medium bowl sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  2. With a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and both sugars until light and fluffy. Scrape down the bowl as needed.
  3. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the vanilla.
  4. With the mixer on low speed, scoop in the flour mixture. Add both chocolate chips, and mix until just incorporated.
  5. Wrap the dough in plastic, and flatten. Refrigerate at least 2 hours.
  6. When ready to bake preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line two baking sheets with silpats or parchment.
  7. Using a tablespoon or a cookie scoop, drop the dough onto the prepared sheets.  Bake for 10-12 minutes, until just set!.
  8. Let cool on wire racks, before devouring.
