Triple Chocolate Cookies

 These Triple Chocolate cookies are an awesome treat to kids and adults.  Make them for a special occasion and be sure to earn yourself praiseworthy remarks.  They are not made with creaming method, though, whole eggs are blended with sugar till they turn pale and fluffy.  To this, our melted chocolate is folded with goodness of chopped milk chocolate and dark compound chips.


These cookies are thin crispy delight and melts away easily with an bitter after taste of Dark chocolate.  And yes since these have dark chocolate, make sure to keep an eye on them during baking, because they get burnt very easily.  My entire batch got muched away within days ;)  Serve these with an cup of milk and they are great to go.   Do try and let us know.  




Recipe adapted from Pooja Dhingra's The Big Book of Treats.
Preparation time: 25 minutes
Baking time: 12 to 15 minutes each batch
Yields: 16 big cookies

Ingredients required

  • 90 grams of Dark Chocolate
  • 25 grams of Unsalted Butter
  • 25 grams of All Purpose Flour
  • Pinch of Baking powder
  • 1 Egg
  • 125 grams of castor sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla essence
  • 50 grams of finely chopped Milk Chocolate
  • 1/4 cup of Dark Compound Chips

Method

Melt Dark compound and Butter on an double boiler, set aside.  In an dry bowl, break open an egg and add the sugar.  Whisk to combine.  Pre-heat the oven to 175 degree celsius.  




Continue to beat on an high speed till they turn pale and fluffy.  At this stage, if you remove the beater blades from the bowl, they should fall like ribbon.


At this stage, fold in melted chocolate and butter till they combine.



Now add in flour, milk compound and dark chocolate chips.  


Fold them till they resemble an soft dough.  


Drop an tablespoon mixture in parchment lined Baking sheet,  bake for about 12 to 15 minutes.  If you prefer them chewy, remove them from oven 10-12 minutes before, even if that means cookie centre is soft.  If you want them crispy, you can bake for 14-15 minutes.  


After baking, cool them completely on an wire rack



They make an ideal gifting option too.  Enjoy with an glass of milk.  


Happy Baking.
