It is coming up to Easter.
So we need chocolate. Lots and lots and lots of it. That is my excuse anyway.
And what better way than to indulge in a chocolate cookie with a triple, yeap TRIPLE chocolate hit.
I am talking big fat gorgeous smelling cookies made with lovely melted chocolate, boosted with some cocoa powder and all finished with some chocolate chips. These deserve a large collective yummmmm, right?
And there is more good news when it comes to these cookies. You can freeze the shaped cookies and bake them straight from frozen as needed. Perfect for those impromptu drop ins, Easter egg hunting triumphs or just simply me time chocolate moments throughout the year.
Don’t forget to try these goodies too…

- Mix together the flour, cocoa powder, sodium bicarbonate and salt in a bowl and set aside.
- In another bowl, cream together the butter and sugars and when done mix in the melted chocolate, then the vanilla extract and the egg.
