Triple Chocolate Brownie Cookies

Triple chocolate brownie cookies, loaded with three kinds of chocolate, are a dark, rich, decadent collision of brownies and cookies. Just a couple of bites and your chocolate cravings will be satisfied! (nut-free)


  • 6 oz unsweetened bakers chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips or chunks
  • 6 tbsp butter (I use salted)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp instant coffee or espresso powder
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup whole wheat flour or all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • Flaky sea salt, for topping (optional)


  1. In a medium microwave-safe bowl, melt bakers chocolate, dark chocolate chips, and butter by heating in 30-second intervals, stirring in between until smooth. Let cool slightly.
  2. Stir instant coffee and vanilla into chocolate.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together sugar and eggs until fluffy.
  4. Add melted chocolate mixture.
  5. Stir in flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix until well combined.
  6. Stir in semisweet chocolate chips.
  7. Cover dough and refrigerate until cooled, 30 minutes or more.
  8. Once dough is chilled, preheat oven to 350° F. Line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment. Scoop dough into balls using a small cookie scoop (about 1 tbsp) and place about 2 inches apart on the cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes.
  9. Remove cookies from oven. Optional: sprinkle with flaky sea salt, such as Maldon.  Let cookies cool for a few minutes before removing from the baking sheet.


  • For the best texture, take care not to over-bake the cookies. In a good oven, 8 minutes is perfect for tablespoon-sized cookies. If your oven tends to run cooler, they'll need closer to 10 minutes.
  • To freeze: scoop dough onto a baking sheet and freeze until solid, then place frozen dough balls in a freezer bag. Bake from frozen, adding 2-3 minutes to the baking time.
