How to Make Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies
Triple Chocolate Chip cookies are easy to make and a great alternative to traditional chocolate chip cookies. These cookies are great for gifting, cookie exchanges, or just when you want a delicious treat.
You can make this cookie in either your stand mixer or using a handheld mixer. To start, you will need to preheat your oven and line you baking sheets with parchment; set aside.
Step 1: cream together the butter and both sugars until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Then, add in the egg and vanilla and mix until combined. Add in the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. No need to mix the dry ingredients separately; you can just add them to the wet and mix with a hand mixer.
Step 2: add in the chips. Here, I use an equal amount of butterscotch chips, white chocolate chips, and chocolate chips. In addition, I add in a teaspoon of instant espresso powder. You can omit the instant espresso powder if you want, but I urge you to try it if you have it. It really brings out the flavors of the chips. And, yes, you can always substitute just regular instant coffee if you have only that.
Step 3: Lastly, use a cookie scoop to roll the cookies into about 1 and half inch balls. Be sure to squeeze the dough together to get the chips to stick. Then, press in any remaining chips that are left at the bottom of the bowl.
Step 4: Bake these cookies low and slow; 300 degrees for 20 minutes. Be sure to rotate the cookie sheets while the cookies are baking.
Let cool on a wire rack. These cookies can be frozen up to a month in an airtight container. Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies are perfect for a cookie exchange or just a sweet treat to have around.
