These are the BEST chocolate-chocolate (and chocolate) cookies we’ve ever had the pleasure of baking and devouring.  Friends and family agree…these Thick and Chewy Triple Chocolate Cookies are truly special. They are not only thick and chewy, but they are the chocolatiest cookies around and they stay chewy for days.

I could rave endlessly about these uber Chewy Triple Chocolate Cookies.  Around our family and friends, these cookies have become a little bit famous.  Much admiration exists for these chocolatey, chewy, luscious cookies.

But rather than raving on and on because these cookies are THAT much yum, I’ll keep it short and sweet.

Wonderfully, decadently sweet for all the chocolate and cookie lovers out there.

So you can go and bake these cookies pronto.

Thick Chewy Triple chocolate cookies

I will say that it’s important to follow the instructions for this triple chocolate cookie recipe, since there is a precise science behind why they turn out so nice and chewy.

Not cakey nor dry.  Simply chewy and toothsome.  Deep, rich chocolatey bliss.

These cookies are aptly named, as they are indeed thick and chewy, thanks to the brown sugar and melted chocolate within the batter.

Triple Chocolate Cookies

I made a big happy batch of these triple chocolate cookies and brought them along for a road trip during the long weekend.

The cookies stayed chewy for days, were a highlight during are we there yet pick-me-ups, and will absolutely remain in my favorite cookie files forever. Looking for more chocolate cookie favorites? Try these double dark chocolate chip cookies next!

These have a deep and complex chocolate flavor, with basic ingredients. The result is a chewy and fudgy center with slightly crisp edges. Moist, rich, and dreamy. Totally chewy (not cakey or dry) and stay that way for many days. Freeze leftover dough for baking when you need some chocolatey treats!

  • In a bowl, whisk the four, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate at 50% power for 2 minutes and stir well. If needed, repeat 1 more minute. (Alternatively melt chocolate in a bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water, stirring until melted.)
  • In a bowl, whisk together the eggs and vanilla. Sprinkle coffee powder to dissolve. Set Aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment, beat butter and both sugars at medium until combined, 1 minute. Mixture may be gritty. Decrease to low speed, add egg mixture, and mix to incorporate, 1 min.
  • Add melted chocolate in a steady stream, mixing until combined, 1 minute, scraping down bowl and beater as needed.
  • With mixer still on low, add dry ingredients gradually and gently mix just until combined, without over beating.
  • With rubber spatula, fold in chocolate chips. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and chill in fridge at least 1 hour or until scoop-able.
  • Adjust oven to lower middle position, at 350F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • divide dough into balls about 1 1/2 inch in diameter. Set balls on lined baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Slightly flatten dough balls.
  • Bake just until edges are begun to set but centers are still very soft, 8-9 minutes. Cool on baking sheets 10 minutes. Carefully transfer to wire rack and cool to room temp.
  • Store in airtight container at room temp.

    Confused about what chocolate to melt. Please help.

      Hi, Judy! It’s the 16 oz semi-sweet chocolate that is to be melted. I just modified the instructions to make it clearer. Thanks for coming over and hope you these as much as we do 🙂

        I’m glad this comment was here. Its still really not clear. It would be nice is this step:
        “In a microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate at 50% power for 2 minutes, stir, and continue heating until melted, stirring each minute. (Alternatively do this in a bowl set over saucepan of simmering water stirring until melted.)”
        said “melt semi-sweet chocolate”

        Thank you, these cookies are amazing!
