These triple chocolate chunk cookies are completely irresistible. Rich, fudgy and customizable with your favorite chocolate! I have 4 different ways to make these cookies today… but really the possibilities are endless.Soft and chewy triple chocolate chip cookies.

For the base of these cookies I start with semi-sweet chocolate chips and my favorite Private Selection dark chocolate chunks from Kroger. They are pretty much a staple in any cookie I make now days. They are so good. Every week I order my groceries on ClickList (which has saved me so much time and money) and these always pop in the recommended section. What can I say… I love chocolate!

You could also use a milk chocolate chip instead of semi sweet. I also used two different kinds of cocoa powder (dark and natural unsweetened) to add an extra depth of richness, but you’re more than welcome to use one or the other. If you’d like to make a double chocolate cookie, just use one type of chocolate chip and one cocoa powder. I love the triple effect from both the chips and chunks though. I also love topping them with a little bit of sea salt to really bring out the flavor.

4 different ways to make triple chocolate chip cookies

Here are the other 4 versions I’m sharing today, but really the possibilities are endless. This chocolate cookie dough is a great base. White chocolate chips is always a winner too.

Salted caramel chips – I also found these at Kroger in the baking section and had to get my hands on them. They were so yummy! They don’t get gooey like a normal caramel would, but they do have a great flavor.

Monster eye cookies- Since Halloween is coming up, I thought it would be fun to make some of these with candy eyes. All I did was melt a little bit of chocolate and place it on the back of the eye to go on the cookie. Simple and the kids loved these!

White chocolate dipped chocolate cookie -For these cookies we melted white chocolate melting wafers and then dipped half the cookie and placed them on wax paper to harden. We sprinkled half of them with orange sprinkles for a fun Halloween treat. For Christmas you could do red and green sprinkles. ;)White chocolate dipped chocolate cookies

Reese’s pieces cookies – these are for the peanut butter lovers! Simply mix 1/2 cup – 1 cup into the dough and bake. Another fun Halloween treat!

  1. Oh Yummy! These look delicious. They look like the ones they use to make at the school when my girls were still in school. Pinning! Got to try them.

  2. For the version with the Salted caramel chips – are you add the salted caramel chips in ADDITION to the dark chocolate chunks and semi-sweet chocolate chips?

  3. Awww… I’m in love! :) This is not a triple chocolate cookie, this is a chocolate paradise. :) Those shots look amazing and I can’t wait to give this a try. Thank you for sharing the whole process. Everything what’s on a video seems so much easier to make. Nicole

  4. These are delicious!  Best chocolate chocolate chip recipe I’ve  ever used. Definitely a keeper. Thank you!

  5. Hi Jamielyn, the recipe looks great! Can I freeze half of the dough if I  prefer to bake the cookies at a later time? 

    • Definitely! I would recommend shaping the dough into balls and “flash freezing” on a cookie sheet. Then add them to a freezer bag to store. Once ready to bake, remove from the freeze and let thaw for 15-20 minutes. :)

  6. These are absolutely delicious!

  7. May be human error… but the recipe never specifies to spread the dough far apart from one another and I think 2 tablespoons is way too much. Mine ended up completely together, over the entire cookie sheet. If you make them, I would use less dough per cookie and allow a significant amount of space in between. I can’t comment on taste, we had to toss them all.

    • Hi Missy! I fit 12 large cookie dough scoops on my cookie sheet and had no problem with my cookies touching after baking. I’m sorry you didn’t have success with this recipe. You definitely can use less cookie dough if you would like smaller cookies. :)

  8. These turned out so so well – nice dark, chocolate colour and perfect texture. I also made a few adjustments to make these slightly healthier: I used HALF as much sugar, and swapped half the flour for spelt flour. They still tasted very sweet, and extremely decadent. It also made a large batch for me – 17 quite large cookies. I did 6 cookies per tray x2 and 5 on the last tray. On my last tray I added a pretzel on top… havent tried those ones yet but am very excited.

  9. Just a question! When substituting the special dark, do you add 2/4 c regular and 1/4 c dark or JUST the 1/4 dark? These look absolutely wonderful!!!

    do i understand correctly 1 cup plus 2 sticks of butter?

  11. My battery is like brownie batter… Is this correct before it’s put in the fridge?

    • Hi Jessica! It is definitely a cookie dough texture, not liquidy like brownie batter. Are you sure you added enough flour? There is a video on the post that shows the process and what it should look like. :)
