Triple Chocolate Cookies. These fudgy, chocolate cookies are made with melted Baker’s chocolate, cocoa powder, dark chocolate chips, and chocolate chunks. A chocolate lover’s dream.
Several years ago I worked in southern Pennsylvania, about an hour away from my home. During lunch I didn’t have time to drive home, didn’t know anyone in the area, and didn’t know where to go. So, I’d often go walk laps around the grocery store … seeing that in type makes me realize that might not be the most normal thing, but that’s okay, I liked it. There was one particular grocery store that had a nice bakery section – so it was obviously my favorite. One day the bakery had these tasty looking Dutch Chocolate Cookies. I bought a container, ate every single last one of them, and decided they were the best cookies I had eaten to date. I started getting them every week and having them as my afternoon snack. Years later, when I started working closer to home, I missed those cookies and thought of them often. I looked for a replacement, but could not find an acceptable alternative. So, I tried to make them. I made multiple batches and never could get the taste I was looking for …. until last week….
Last weekend I wrote the German Chocolate Cake post, where I mentioned that I had never eaten German chocolate cake before I made that particular one. When I made it, I realized I that not only I had I not eaten German chocolate cake, but I hadn’t had Baker’s chocolate. When I made the cake and tasted the melted Baker’s chocolate, I immediately thought, “Eureka! THIS is the taste of those Dutch Cookies!!”. Let me tell you, those Baker people know what they are doing when it comes to chocolate. I knew I needed to get more of these people’s chocolate in my life asap, so, that’s what I did – I came up with these triple chocolate cookies that use the Baker’s chocolate both melted and chopped. If you like chocolate, these will not disappoint.
These fudgy, chocolate cookies are made with melted Baker's chocolate, cocoa powder, dark chocolate chips, and chocolate chunks. A chocolate lover's dream.
- 1 cup unsalted butter softened
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 2 tbsp corn starch
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 6 ounces Baker's semi-sweet chocolate
- 1 cup Hershey dark chocolate chips plus 1/4 cup
Microwave 4 ounces of the Baker's semi-sweet chocolate in 30 second intervals, stirring after each interval, until smooth. Set aside.
Using a mixer, beat together butter, sugar, and brown sugar until light. About 3 minutes.
Beat in eggs and vanilla extract until just combined, scraping down sides with spatula as needed.
Mix in melted chocolate until combined.
In a medium sized bowl, whisk together flour, corn start, baking soda, salt and cocoa powder.
Beat flour mixture into butter/sugar mixture 1/2 cup at a time, scraping down sides of bowl as needed.
Chop 2 ounces of the Baker's semi-sweet chocolate. Stir chopped chocolate along with 1 cup of chocolate chips into dough.
Place in refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
Once ready to bake, preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line baking sheets (I prefer air bake sheets for cookies) with parchment paper or silicone mats.
Scoop dough about 1 tbsp at a time onto prepared baking sheet. Place cookies about 2 inches apart.
Gently press down dough just a pit and place 2-3 dark chocolate chips into top of dough (this makes for pretty cookies).
Bake for 12-15 minutes. Let cool on baking sheet for 1-2 minutes and then move to cooling rack to finish cooling.

Thing I used to make this recipe and recommend:
- Air Bake Cookie Sheets If you don’t have these, you need them. They help bake cookies perfectly – I tend to burn the bottoms on other sheets.
- Silicone Baking Mat If you don’t have these, get them. They’ll save you money on parchment paper in the long run. I use them for almost anything I’m cooking in the oven since they clean so easily.
