Awesome Triple Chocolate Cookies - Taste Test Approved

On Sunday afternoon, Oliver and I went shopping up in Norwich for a couple of jigsaws. He had been really good ALL day and I treated him to a cookie to eat in the car on the way home.

That was it - he'd had a taste of a real chocolate cookie..... and it was only going to be a matter of time before his request was put in. Oliver doesn't forget anything.

This morning, he was up and playing around the house after finishing his breakfast.

"Cookies ! Can Oliver and Mummy make cookies ?"

Well, we dug out an old recipe from the cupboard and made up a quick batch of these. They were made and ready (and Oliver had eaten one) before 11am !

On picking my rascal up from nursery this evening I found he had informed everyon that he had made chocolate cookies for breakfast. Ah well. He's only had ONE so far... and the rest will be rationed to make them last.

Do be warned. These cookies are delightfully fugdy and gooey and SERIOUSLY chocolatey. Almost brownie like in the centre but with crisp edges.


1 egg
125g salted butter
250g light brown soft sugar
1 tsp vanilla
175g self raising flour
70g cocoa powder
100g white chocolate chips
100g milk chocolate chips

Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Add in sieved flour and cocoa and mix to combine. Mix in chocolate chips - you could add nuts too if you like

Roll into walnut size balls and place on prepared baking trays. Putting them on greaseproof paper is ok, but if you have silicone baking mats  / tray liners - my preference is to use the smooth side up.

Put into a 170deg C Fan oven for approx 9 mins. Theese do spread, but not too much. The cookies will end up about 3" diameter. You can get about 9 on a tray and this mix makes approx 24. Of course, you could always make them bigger and cook longer.

Mine were in the oven for 9 minutes. The outsides were crisp and the insides really yummy and squishy. From the outside, they looked disapointingly cakey when I wanted chewy and gooey - but looks sometimes do deceive ! Oliver seemed satisfied with the results. You can see how squidgy they are from the inside and the colour of his teeth. Yeuch !

I think we will be making these again soon.....

When removed from the oven, leave on the tray for a minute or two to cool before transferring to a wire rack until totally cooled. If putting on silicone baking sheets, these need to cool a little longer on the trays as the silicone retains quite a bit of heat.

  1. I am making these for sure!! MY huge boys will love them as much a little Oliver :P So adorable with his messy lips!

    My daughter n family have gone safely back to the US a few weeks ago. They were so relieved to be back 'home' ....as they do have a home there :))

    take care Sarah,



  2. What a delightful blog you have here! The cookies look delicious too! I would like to have one for breakfast :)

    SO nice stopping in to meet you.
    Kindly, Lorraine

  3. Those cookies look gorgeous, especially all tied up in ribbon. Looks like they were well appreciated too!

  4. Thank you. These have proved a huge hit. I left some in a little tupperware at home for Oliver and the rest were taken to work.

    The ones at home disappeared quickly too. Oliver had all 4 of them over two days.

    This morning, just after breakfast Oliver told me "Mummy makes best cookies ever ever whole wide world !"

    I was creasing myself laughing.....

    "Oliver and mummy make yummy cookies for Oliver and nursery".

    Of course - we had to bake another batch. Oliver sifted the flour and the cocoa. I'll be trying to clear up remains that I keep finding all weekend at this rate.

    This time, I made them teeny ones - half the size. Oliver got to take a bag to nursery and the rest are rationed.

    "Tiny cookie Mummy. Oliver NEEDS two !"

    Not daft... He's already not amused that these ones are really going to be rationed.

    Zurin, these won't last 5 minutes with your huge boys. They'll disappear just like magic...

    Lorraine and Choclette - lovely to have you stop by. Thank you for visiting
