Perfect Homemade Triple Chocolate Cookie Ice Cream Sundae:



  • Mix wet ingredients: Cream together the butter, sugar, and brown sugar. Mix in the eggs and vanilla extract.
  • Mix dry ingredients and combine: In a separate bowl, mix the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until well combined. Fold in the three types of chocolate chips.
  • Chill the dough: Cover the bowl and refrigerate for 15-20 minutes so that the dough doesn’t spread too much when baking.
  • Prepare cookie sheets: Cover two cookie sheets with parchment paper. Scoop the dough onto the cookie sheets.
  • Bake: Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Allow to cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes before removing from cookie sheet to prevent breaking.

  • Baking Chips: Give your chocolate cookies bursts of flavor with peanut butter chips, mint chips (great for the holidays!), or salted caramel chips.
  • Melted Chocolate: Dip your cookies halfway in melted chocolate. Microwave either white chocolate chips or dark chocolate chips in a glass bowl, stirring every 30 seconds until melted.
  • Nuts: Stir in some chopped walnuts, or your favorite nuts, to give your cookies some crunch!
  • S’Mores: Make these into campfire inspired cookies by folding in Marshmallows cut in to small pieces. Roll half of your cookie dough in graham cracker crumbs. 
  • Espresso: Bring out the chocolate flavor and give your cookies a richer dark chocolate taste by adding a tablespoon of instant espresso powder to your cookie dough batter.

Tips for making Triple Chocolate Cookies

    • Soften your butter to room temperature. Melted butter will cause the dough to spread and flatten. If the butter is too cold, it won’t cream and form air pockets. Air pockets make your cookies light and fluffy.
    • Press a couple chocolate chips into the top of the cookie dough once it’s been scooped onto the baking sheet. This way you will for sure get plenty of chocolatey melty bits in each bite.
    • To get perfectly chewy cookies, bake them until the edges are set and slightly browned. It’s going to be harder to tell since they are dark from the chocolate, so keep an eye on them.



  • Serve: Keep Triple Chocolate Cookies in a sealed container at room temperature for up to 2 days.
  • Store: You can store your cookies longer in the fridge for up to a week. To get your cookies chewy again, pop in the microwave for about 15 seconds.
  • Freeze: Freeze your cookie dough or baked cookies for up to 2 months in an airtight container. Freeze cookie dough on a baking sheet for an hour before transferring to a freezer bag.

  1. Hi, these cookies look amazing but on my first try I followed the recipe thoroughly and chilled for 40 minutes, baked for 10 but my cookies were flat. On my second bake I chilled my dough overnight but got the same flat lifeless cookies….. ?

    1. There are a few different culprits when it comes to flatness when baking. Make sure that you’re measuring the flour correctly by spooning it into a measuring cup vs scooping directly in. Also, over mixing the dough can also lead to flat cookies. Hope this helps for next time.

  2. These look like cookies I will absolutely dream about. love the mix of chocolate in them! My next baking project with my little girl!
